The Downside to Literacy

Jackson can read anything.

When I say "read" I don't mean barely sound out words. No, he can read multi-syllable dialogue that is way over his head.

This raises lots of questions for the 5 year-old mind.

For your pleasure:

"Mom, what is Tampax?"

"Why do American Troops kick a**?"

"Why do you buy fat-free homogenized milk?"

"What?! When are we moving to Dallas?"

"Mom, Halloween is a fun-filled day with chills and thrills."

Hi Coley! I think I finally figured out how to respond,,,yea! Just wait until J can process the words you spell out. Such as, "Brad, let's take the kids to get i-c-e c-r-e-a-m" and J runs to tell L that y'all are going to Baskin Robbins!

Love the blog. It's not as good as talking to you daily, but it keeps me in touch.

Lilly is a pistol and Jackson is my love.
