    now, this is just something i feel i should write about! my four-and-a-half year old is really making me proud :)

    his "formal studies" will start late august this year but he's already a few baon from our sort-of home-schooling sessions. he can basicaly read easy words already, those phonetic and simple ones... well, reads phonetically so you can't expect he can read "the", "photos", "kitchen" and other more complex words the way they are supposed to be read, but he can read them. and boy, am i proud!

    this afternoon, while blues clues was running on the tv and the little one was asleep. i told him his friend will be visiting, so he got excited and said "ok, let's clean up!" - i always tell him to clean up when we'll be having visitors... (so please try to avoid giving us a surprise visit! hehe). after cleaning up, he got a paper and a pen and i continued cleaning up a bit more. then i heard him mumbling "cah... cahhll... cah... lllvvv.. caalllvvv... iiinnn". i just ignored it and then he went up to me and showed me what he was working on. he handed me a paper that said "CALZEN", i almost cried the moment i saw it... babaw no? :) pero i just felt so proud and happy! well, he gets a bit confused with V and Z so corrected him with that and may need reminder with how "I" is read and pronounced sometimes, but hey, he's got it! and that really makes me proud, it's the first time he tried spelling a new word, he usually just spells common ones like dog and cat. :)

    these little milestones just make us ecstatic, excited and proud, don't you agree? i hope and pray he keeps it up! :)
