Yesterday, Bria left her spelling list at school. This meant that, come homework time, she couldn't complete it and would therefore have to stay in at recess the next morning to finish it. Something we all know she would rather not do.
After looking all over the house to see if it had been misplaced, we only came up with a few lists from past weeks. I noticed that they all came from Harcourt spelling and were always related to a specific story they were reading that week. So, I asked Bria what the name of this week's story was and then looked online to see if I could come up with the list.
Lo and behold, not only did I come up with one site that had it listed, but more like 4, 324 sites. Seems every kid in the country uses this particular reading/spelling program. So, I pulled it up on the computer and told Bria to come sit at the desk to finish her spelling homework (putting the 15 words into alphabetical order).
She was completely awestruck and kept asking, "MOM! How did you do that? How did you know all my spelling words? Mom! How could you do that! This is so cool!!!" Ad nauseum.
After about the tenth time asking me how I did it and me telling her you can find anything on the internet, Chloe finally piped in and said matter-of-factly, "Mommy's just amazing, Bria."
End of discussion.
