That's Not My Snowman
I was reading my friend Lacey's blog and she wrote about her daughter "reading" a story to them. Well, being the type of mother that compares my children to other children (I know, it's bad and I should stop) I wanted to see if Kember could do it too! Guess what?! She did. Tonight I was reading to the kids and one of the books was "That's not my Snowman" after I read it I gave it to her and she "read" it to me. It was too cute. She read it twice to me, I read it to her again, and then waited for Dan to finish calling his mock client (he has to get permission to operate on a goat...weird). Then I had her "read" it to him. It was too cute. She didn't get it entirely right. It is supposed to say, "That's not my snowman" and then at the end say "That's my snowman!" but every page she did the not was left out. I'm just amazed at how well children can memorize things. Especially songs. Kember memorizes songs really fast. I guess my kids are "Keeping up with the Jones'" so we are good on that front!
