Molly just came running into my room to show me a paper she was drawing on. She said "I wrote my name". I took a look at the paper and thought someone must have helped her. I certainly haven't worked on her name with her.
I called to the other kids and asked them who helped her write her name. None of them knew anything about it. I asked her to write it again for me. She grabbed her blue highlighter again and started writing.
She had to write it a few more times for us so we could all see her do it.
I have a feeling this is only the beginning. I remember when another of my kids learned his name I soon started to find it all over the house. Even written above the door frame of his room. I wonder where I will find her name written next.
