he's funny.

So long as Moses has known about sharks we have told him that
they say "doo doot, doo doot"...you know, like the music in Jaws.

That's cute right?

Add to that, the fact that Moses is being raised in the south...
and you get "deww dewt, deww dewt".
Which is what it sounds like when Moses makes the shark noise.

Whenever I hear him do it I add in my own "ya'll" and imagine a shark with
teeth like Mater from Cars.

Dew dewt, ya'll.
So at MOPS last week a friend was sharing how her 18month old knows
his alphabet...or can at least identify all his letters when he see's a photo of them.

Someone else at the table said "Well, you and your husband are both lawyers so it would make sense that reading is high on your kid's ability list"

Another friend was saying that her child was really into science stuff...the planets and what not.
And someone said "Well that DOES make sense with the degree that you have".

All I could say was "Well, what does it say about me if Moses can beat box and break dance?"

I raise cool kids?

After that discussion I bought Moses the post it note flash cards in the photo above.
I laughed out loud at the first four I pulled off. In that order.
I left them there are a good reminder.

Please, woman, think right!

Those post its are so cute - do you mind me asking where you got them from?

When i was little my sisters used to turn the light off while I was taking a bath and then play the jaws theme song full blast through the stereo. I was not HAPPY!

There's an obsession in having kids read so early... how boring school will be! Don't spoil kids childhood... teach them fun and love! Beat box is a great skill, "musicians" have a good abstract thinking, great for maths, and is fun!

Hilarious! I think it's cooler that Moses can break dance anyway! =)

MomBE said...

I think it is great to have kids that can read/write early or show interest in academic endeavors, BUT I think kids all learn those things at their own rate and it all eventually plataeus a bit for those kids who start early. But cool and interesting.....that lasts FOREVER!!!

I really love your "southern shark" I think someone will have to photoshop up an image of one! What a great way to get people smiling :)

As for when children read etc, I think that no matter what, they will all learn in their own time. My daughter has learning difficulties and it never gets her down, even when her younger brother races ahead of her in school. We make the most of what talent she does have and luckily, she's a crafter like me ;)

THIS IS SO WEIRD! Just this morning (like an hour ago) I was singing (humming?) the Jaws song when Jack was talking about sharks. He asked what that was and I told him it was the noise sharks make.

Great minds think alike.

I think you are a cool mom, can you teach me to beat box? I stopped going to things like MOPS because really to me all it was, were women bragging about what their kid could do and how fast they were learning this. Claire is now in kindergarten and she is doing fine. Does she know all her rainbow words, no, can she read like some of the others, no, but she loves school and loves what she does know!

It means that you raise fun, cute, amazing kids!!! When I see that an 18 month old can recognize their letters, all I can think about is their parents practicing and practicing, and forcing them to pay attention. That's not natural!!! Hey my son is 20 months old and can sing the "low, low, low, low" part on the Apple Bottom Jeans song...what does that say? It says that I enjoy playing with my son and not beating something into his head.

HA... That is funny... at least you pulled them off and your hubby didn't put them up... {giggle}

This post made me smile all over!

What is the freaky hurry to learn so early about??? What is an 18 month old going to do with the alphabet?? Have you ever heard Tim Hawkins take on this?? He says "why not teach them something useful like....how to mow the lawn?" hahaha I love your attitude, and I love the shark noises. Keep on doing what your doing! Oh, I love your wall color too, care to share??

I completely agree with MomBE! Let kids be kids. There is also something to be said for social intelligence. You need a balance of the two to be successful in school and life.

Those kinds of messages think the loudest and the clearest don't they. He will be a mighty clever boy when he starts school and it will have nothing in the world to do with how much he reads or knows science. Those things will come in due time. He will be awesome because of the time and effort you put into him. I know, I have three just like him and not one of them could read by the time they started kindergarten. However, the 2 who are in school are in the top of their classes. They are wonderful, kind leaders with many friends and much respect from their teachers. Kudos to you for seeing what is most important. Letting them be kids!
