Gingerbread Woman

I love watching her progress…year after year, day after day. Lately she is very aware of pronouns…changing his to hers and he to she where appropriate. When you stop and think about it, that’s a huge language and social milestone.

After school, Matthew and Olivia were playing on the trampoline. She had her constant companion, Fix It Felix from Wreck It Ralph, and Matthew was chasing her reciting the Gingerbread Man poem. When it was Olivia’s turn, she added “because” in the appropriate grammatical spot and, since she was talking about herself, changed it to Gingerbread Woman.

These are my favorite moments. Just an ordinary afternoon, hanging out in the backyard, capturing a precious moment between brother and sister and being able to reflect upon the significance of it all.

Watch Olivia here.

Happy Tuesday.
