A day with Jillian.

"How do you spell Spencer?"
Spell it out.
"Okay..."

Spencer.
"S...?"

SPUH-EN-CER
"Sr?"

PUH. PUH. PUH.
"Sp...r?"

SPUH- EH-EH-EH-EH-N-CER
"Spe...r?"

SPUH-EN-NUH-NUH-NUH-CER
"Specr"

No, there's an N.
"Specr?"

No, there's an N!
"What?"

AN EN.

NUH-NUH--YES! Guh.
"Spensr?"

No, you had the ending right at first.
"Huh?"

No, you had the ending RIGHT at first.
"Spencr?"

No, you need an E before the R.
"What?"

ER.
"Spencr?"

ER.
"R?"

What makes the "ER" sound?

"R?"

But what comes before the R?

"R?"

No....what came before the R the first time you wrote it?

"E?"

Yeah. E-R. ER.

"Okay, so it's Specern?"

GUH!!!!

--Thus is the life of babysitting a child who refused to read until this year, because she had to for school.






~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

Of course, this week hasn't been totally horrible.
I mean, we've had fun.
She just got me in a horrible mood this morning because she woke me up after a nightmare...toooo eaarrrlllyyy


Anyway.

Monday: Made finger puppets, lots of activities, 1.5 hours of "school" :O video
Tuesday: Made a sun, which is currently on the fridge, more "school"
Wednesday: Made a fan, more encouragement to play by herself
Today: We're going to make bunny ears, and play on the excersize machine and....hopefully more solitary activities for herrrr.
Tomorrow: NO IDEA. DEATH?

You don't have to babysit if its too much to handle.
