Second grader, MK, was having speech today, working on her S. She was reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears. That book is filled with the /s/ sound and I was keeping data to see how many she said correctly. In this particular book, all 3 bears ride in to the woods on a bicycle to let their porridge cool. Mother Bear is wearing a green dress, a hat with flowers and goggles. MK stopped reading and said emphatically, while pointing to Mother Bear, "That is UGLY!"
Me: What's ugly? Mother Bear's hat?
MK "Not just the hat, everything; her dress and those weird glasses!" Then looking very important she stated, "My Mom KNOWS fashion!"
Me: "Really, how do you know she knows fashion?"
MK: "She's always going shopping at the mall! She especially shops at Claire's and Dillards!"
"in fact," she continued, "I find something I really like and she just looks at it then won't buy it!" She sighed, while smoothing the pants of her blue velour suit.
I looked at the picture in the book and knew deep down that MK's mom would not approve of Mother Bear's attire, either.
Speaking of fashion sense, we (when I say we, I mean the hubs) are remodeling a deserted bedroom. We (again, we know who "we" is) have taken the "popcorn" off the ceiling (it's an older home), put in a new window, and re-did the closet. Here's the beginning of the painting.
Does it look a little too bright? It just seems like yellow is the right color to paint this room on a dreary winter day. I think we'll save on electricity. I'll post about the finished product when "we" are finished!
