Babess has decided recently that we should all “sign in” or “sign out” when we leave or arrive home. This is an idea she has adopted from daycare, I am sure. She has an exercise book I gave her to draw pictures and practise her writing in, and she has devoted a page to be her sign-in sheet.
She doesn’t enforce the rule rigidly (thank goodness!), but when she decides it is necessary, she writes her own name and Pearl’s and Fainjin’s with ease. Today she asked me to spell my name out for her, and she wrote that down too.
“How do you spell Daddy’s name?” she asked next. I spelt it out for her.
“But…” she was confused. “Where’s the D?”
So I spelt out “Daddy” instead of his name, and she was much happier.
