Mr. Smartypants

Evan has really been into rhyming lately. Wherever we go, whatever we do, Evan has been entertaining me with his creative, sometimes unconventional, rhyming. He'll say, "Mom!! Dog--Log!" And I'll respond, "Good rhyme, Evan!" A few seconds later, "Mom!!! School--Pool!" "Yes, Evan! Another one!" And then, "Eyebrow..." (What could he possibly pair with that, huh?) "Eyebrow--Wyebrow!" (Giggle, giggle, giggle!) "Ah, yes, those have the same sounds, Evan!" Here's Evan showcasing a little of his rhyming skills for you... Evan is beginning to hear beginning sounds in words too. The other day he said, "MOM!! That starts with M!" (I love how he always shares his discoveries by shouting such an enthusiastic MOM!!) Yesterday, when he finished using the bathroom, it was, "MOMMM! PU starts with U! And a P!!!" Ha! I love how these ideas are really coming together in his mind now. It is exciting to watch him. :)

The last thing I wanted to share with you was Evan singing a song he learned in preschool. Evan has always loved to sing, and always participates fully when they do anything with music in his class. This particular song, "Sticky Bubble Gum", is one of his favorites... Have a great day!
