smarty pants

The other day, Sam was reading an article about potential 2012 presidential candidates for the Republican Party. Anna came in from the porch, looked at the screen and said, "Party. P-A-R-T-Y" and continued playing.

Apparently, she's learning how to read.

Later that day, however, I got her to eat an entire piece of lunch meat (she goes on hunger strikes when she get's a cold...) by letting her hold a chocolate chip cookie in between bites. She never once actually took a bite of the cookie.

So let's not jump to any conclusions about her cleverness just yet.

Wow. How did you teach her to spell?

We didn't! That's what was so crazy about it. Although, we already knew she could identify her letters, we didn't know she could identify whole words.

Ha that made me laugh! I'm sure she was just messing with you on the cookie-front :)
