"Daddy, how do you spell pudding?"
My 4 yr. old got a great new purple purse that she has been carrying around the house, taking to church and any where else we happen to go, and has specific spots for each of it's contents including the AAA batteries, which I don't quite get yet?? One of her prized possessions within the purse is a notebook. She has been watching me track in my 3 month tracker that I keep in the kitchen. Often, she adds her own little creations in my journal, but now she has her own. For the past week, each morning she has asked me how to spell pudding. Seems this is her breakfast of choice lately and she's getting pretty good at spelling it.
These simple habits make a difference. I had kind of neglected the journal lately, but now that my shadow has kicked me back in gear, I'm watching more diligently. Remember that people are watching you, reading what you write, looking at what you are eating and your habits are rubbing off on others no matter how small they are.
