Little Sponge

I thought this picture was appropriate, seeing as Spongebob is Carson's newest obsession! (thank God for dvr)

Well, our household has its own little "spongebob." His name is Carson. As the saying are total sponges, and our lovely three year old is no exception. Last night we were in the kitchen cooking dinner and Carson came in and told me "Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday." I was blown away! I had no idea that our little one already knew the days of the week. He just recently learned how to spell his name, can count to ten in spanish, pour himself a drink and is now tracing letters at school.

With the good, comes the not-so-good as well! Carson has shown us that our household is full of procrastinators. He has a variety of sentences that I can only assume he picked up from, well, us. "Two more minutes" "Maybe later" "Maybe tomorrow" "Maybe next time" are a few of his favorite responses when asked to do something. We are learning to be very careful with what we say in front of our very vocal child and taking this opportunity to teach him as much as his little brain can "soak up."
