Spicy presented me with a list of bugs she wants to observe. Included are: SBIDRS, WRMS, LADIE BUGS, and ATS.
The most hilariously cheerful bit was when I congratulated her on a good list, read all the words aloud, and then said, “Some of the words are usually spelled a little differently, though… like, spider actually has a P in it… sssP-ider.”
She said it to herself a few times: ssss…bider, sssss….bider, and then said, “No Mom, I’m pretty sure that’s actually a B.”
Between phonics and her cold, I think her cold is winning.
