Got Vitamin E?

Aurora is always saying very cute and intelligent things. A few weeks ago at breakfast she was looking at the boxes of cereal that were on the table. She looked at me and said: “Mom, there is no vitamin E in Trix or in Strawberry Chex. But, there is in Cheerios!”

Kevin has been working on memorizing scriptures. He has these scriptures written out on 3 x 5 cards. Aurora got a hold of these cards and started copying them into her journal to practice writing letters. I was surprised when she asked me for Daddy’s cards. I told her they weren’t to play with. She said she needed them. I asked why and she showed me her journal. Sure enough, there was almost an entire scripture written in her cute little handwriting. So I got Daddy’s cards for her. Soon after I heard: “Mom, I’m missing one”. “What?” “I’m missing number 4, that is the one I was doing”. I soon found that Kevin had numbered his cards. Sure enough, number 4 was missing. I called Kevin and confirmed that he had that card with him at work. Aurora was disappointed, but I asked Kevin for the reference and soon Aurora was copying letters right out of the Book of Mormon. When Aurora finished the scripture I asked to read it. So, I was reading out of her journal and I got stuck on a few letters that were run together. I was trying to make out what it said and in a disappointed and accusatory tone Aurora said: “What Mom, you need glasses or something?”

yeah, there have been times when Hannah was a bit younger that I had issues figuring her "stories" out. And I was given a few unbelievable looks because I couldn't read it as fluently as she would have liked :)
