Oh the Drama!!

Tonight we were talking at the dinner table when Britt and I started talking to Charissa about learning to read.  I got a new book today called Teach your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons by Siegfried Engelmann, and I'm very excited to start going through it was Charissa.  No lie - she's ready for it.  And this is the conversation she and Britt had:


Britt:  Aren't you excited to learn to read? You'll be able to read your own books.  Doesn't that sound like fun?

*long dramatic pause, hangs her head*

Charissa:  Sounds like a lot of work.

We laughed so hard!  Oh the drama!  Charissa didn't exactly understand why it was funny, so she kept saying it with a different word at the end of the phrase.  So it became, "Sounds like a lot of dance!", "Sounds like a lot of food!", and on and on.

You never know with that one ...
