Kids.. gotta love them... Sometimes we learn so many things from them. And then at random moments we learn things that they might not have down, things that they might need extra practice in..
When we are in the car.. which is a lot of time, we play games. This day we played a rhyming game.
SCENE: IN THE CAR ON THE WAY TO AN EVENT
EVERYONE IS IN THE CAR ALL 4 KIDS AND PARENTS.
Papos: Let rhyme.
Mama: OK.. mall, fall
Dada: Flight- right
Papos: um... umm... house, happy
Dada: Pick another one.
Mama: OK lets say a rhyme for car.. car - far - tar... Make a word up... Bed - ved..
Find a rhyming word for Car..
Papos: CAR... Couch..
Mama : No Papos it has to rhyme, you are giving the same beginning sound.. CAR and Couch have the /K/ sound. So give me a word that says ... -AR.
Papos: (thinking, he knows this... I see his eyes get big and a smile on his face) .. I got this.. Car.. PIRATE!
Mama, Dada: um. WHAT?
Papos: Well a Pirate says ARRRRR...
Dada: Guess we know you won't be rapping soon.
And my Santiago was loving the water. This is his first time playing with the water hose. He has a love-hate relationship with it. First he was intrigued with it, then he hated getting drenched, then he loved it. I guess our summer will be filled with hose and water play.
