It's A Miracle
Recently, while Michael was away, the kids and I watched the new Charlotte's Web movie. We all really enjoyed it and I mentioned to Micah that I had read the book when I was younger. This really interested him so even though I thought it might be a bit early for him to read chapter books with me I called a friend and she gave us a copy of the book.
I was really proud of Micah because several times a day for a couple weeks he would ask to read a chapter or two. He had lots of great questions and we had such a good time reading together.
In the book there are several words that Micah did not know the meaning of, he would ask me and I would give him the best meaning I could come up with. About a week after we finished reading the book I realized that perhaps I should have looked up the words in the dictionary....
Micah came in the house and said, "Mom, mom, it's a miracle Jed pooped in the yard and it's made a big mess!"
The next time, about a day later, he came in saying, "Mom, it's a miracle, Maddie pulled down her pants and peed in the yard!"
We have since learned that these things do not constitute miracles. He had several other instances of atributing a miracle to something that really wasn't. He hasn't called anything a miracle in awhile now so I guess he figured it out. I at least have learned that I really need to look meanings up in a dictionary!
