My baby is learning to read and write, and this mama couldn't be more proud! Now helplessly watch as I show off her handiwork.
A couple months ago, Noah and I implemented a Sticker Chart based reward system to help Lila get ready for school. Each week, she had the opportunity to earn a prize of her choosing. Last week, she chose a notepad and set of pens.
She came bounding into our room recently to show us her most recent ouevre.
My favorite part, of course, is the cow. That she drew in the udder just makes me smile. Not to mention the look on the cows face. I love the backward moon. I love that she sounded this out and wrote the whole thing entirely on her own. Really, the whole thing just gets me.
Lila, for her part, is very proud to know her drawing and writing has made it to the internet.
