People thought I was nuts when I was pregnant buying the little guy flashcards of colors, numbers, shapes and the alphabet. Well…
I have done the alphabet cards (and the others as well) with R since he was about a year old (maybe sooner). I would tell his daddy what he was doing but the other day my heart melted. We went to visit daddy at work and I put R down so he could wander. He went to the “Paper Only” sign and pointed at the A and said “ah” then pointed at the E and said “ee”. He did it on his own with no coaching and he did it a few times. Yesterday when I showed him the “A” card he said “Ah”…”Ba”(for b)… “Ka”(like the cat minus the “t”).. “Da”.. “E” and clapped.
AMAZING how their brains are little sponges.
R is almost 20 months old 😀
We need to stay the *F* out of there. We need to get our men and woman home and work on our own country instead of worrying about other countries business. Not to mention the potential of World War 3 and they have made NO threats to the United States or the citizens of our great country. ALSO, what happens if the budget freezes and China won’t lend us more so we can get our troops home. What then? I honestly think we need to work on our own country’s issues and problems instead of spending money we don’t have to invade a country that has made no threat to us. We need to look out for our own and let them work out their own issues.
I mean lets look at it this way … You have sent all your kids to different locations and now there is so much house work to be done you can’t do it all yourself. You are in debt so far that you can’t afford the cost of aiding all the households your kids are at. Your kids are going to be exposed to unknown chemical pesticides and could die from exposure.
What would you do?
Bring your kids home. Then those kids can help around the house, help the family save money and build the family’s infrastructure. Sounds like common sense when you break it down to a basic family level.
