That's what my daughter said after calling us in her room after we tucked her in. She was holding her knees up under her white sheet and pretending to be in an "egg." Then she cackled like it was the funniest, wittiest thing she had ever heard! Aren't kids hilarious?!
On another note about our dear daughter...she read a book to us tonight. A for real, not a phonics reader, book. It was called Mouse Paint and contains tons of words! She read it to me earlier in the day and missed very few words. Among those she missed were: because, danced, cried, part. Among those she didn't miss: shouted, stirred, mixed, stepped, mice, there, were, red, yellow, green, purple, blue, orange, mouse, paint, and many others! We are SO proud of her for reading her first piece of literature! I think we may try to video her reading the book and may even venture to posting our first piece of video on the blog!
(I would also like to add that I know that Katie has NOT memorized this book. We have read the book exactly once together before she picked it up today and read it to me. I say this because I have heard kids "read" books that they have just simply memorized and the sad thing is the parents can't tell. I just wanted to get that out there.)
After Katie read the book and there was lots of applause, Noah wanted to read the book too. He immediately said, "You can tell me what to say." So I encouraged him to just make up whatever story he wanted to go with the pictures (he knows the story). He proceeded to entertain us with a VERY funny version of the story, in fact, it was probably more engaging and exciting than the real story. He included great details in his version, including his very favorite detail, sadly neglected by the author: "that mouse is showing his BOTTOM out the top of the paint jar!"
HA HA HA HA HAHA! (That's Katie and Noah hilariously laughing at Noah's retelling!)
What a fun night!
