Special K and I read together yesterday. She understands phonetics now. I don't know how this leap occured, but she can sound out words now.

She also knows how to pump a swing.

We talk a lot about other people, why they do what they do. Her understanding of the feelings and motivations of others occasionally startles me and sometimes makes me laugh.

Yesterday she went to C and said "Mummy wants dinner now." I hadn't actually told her anything of the kind, but it was true. I'm afraid better examples are largely unbloggable since I don't want to embarrass her. It won't be too long before she'll be able to read this journal. And she definitely cares about what other people think. At the same time, she tells me constantly, "I have so many friends." One of my challenges is to squeeze in enough playdates to suit her social nature between Little T's apts and now mine.

She loves watching David Attenborough nature shows. She loves Oprah Winfrey. Julia Roberts said on a show yesterday, "I expected to love my children, but I didn't expect to like them so much." Me too. I'm always interested in what Special K has to say.

Sam's latest notable comment was about mating. He knows that animals need to mate to have babies, and that it takes a male and a female (most of the time) to mate. Worms, for example, are hermaphrodites and are both male & female. We were talking about where animals mate (because of worms or sharks or something), and I asked him where people mate. He rolled his eyes and said, "In the hospital, silly!"
