Spell d-i-s-a-p-p-e-a-r

February 20th, 2008

F-a-d-e to i-n-v-i-s-i-b-l-e. Step b-a-c-k and a-v-o-i-d becoming a p-e-s-t. After my s-n-e-a-k-y p-l-o-t to t-e-s-t her l-i-s-t for this Friday’s spelling bee she did not d-i-s-g-u-i-s-e her c-r-y. “Mom, you are taking over my life!”

Editorial Note: G-r-i-n. H-a-p-p-y. H-u-g. L-o-v-e. T-h-e-s-e are more than words to m-e-m-o-r-i-z-e.


  1. But, are you “ruining” her life, yet?

  4. I would like a d-a-y o-f-f. Or at least a g-o-o-d n-a-p. Then I would g-r-i-n a lot more.

  5. Taking over her life? Sure. But does she slam the door like my 4 year old? Talk about a window to the teenage angst phase sure to hit in, oh, 8 years.

  6. Every morning, Pearl inventories her new words: Hair, plate, teeth, shoes. Then Aviva spells them. With N-O help with M-A-M-A!

  8. Even if our parents are dead they can take over our lives. The only to take our lives back is to, well, take them.
