Listening In

Today I was teaching Ellie and Maggie some of the names for the bones in the human body. Glory must have been paying attention. She was sitting next to me on the couch and playing with the abacus. I reached over and put my hand on her knee.

Glory said, "Don't touch my patella."

Really? Did she really say that to me?

I was a little offended. After all, she is only 4. Then I realized what she had said to me. She didn't tell me to stop touching her leg. She didn't even ask me to take my fingers off her knee. She ordered me to not touch her patella.

Glad somebody is listening!

Today, I heart homeschooling.
