There's something about the pre-K teachers that's truly magic. Even after just one week, I see a change in the little miss. This makes me happy....and sad. She's my baby!
One of the things I've had to talk to L&G about a lot lately is tone. From school and YouTube videos, they'd picked up "Duh!" with its attendant insolence and eye-rolling. I explained that saying "duh" isn't polite, that it is, in fact, rude, and they took it to heart. If they slip, they theatrically clap their hands over their mouths. And now it's gotten really hilarious because they'll pounce on each other for doing it--"MOM!! GRETA SAID 'DUH'!!!" Lucia will yell. And Greta will immediately defend herself: "I didn't say 'duh.' I said...'suh.'" "MOM, GRETA SAID 'SUH'." "Greta, you shouldn't say 'suh.'" Now and then, they'll look at me and say, "We can't say 'duh,' or 'suh,' or 'buh.'"
We have some funny conversations these days.
