Mia wrote her name
Originally uploaded by ucitysoccer

The whole family was sitting in the living room, everyone kind of doing their own thing. Mia was sitting on the floor coloring and being rather quite when out of the blue she exclaims, "I wrote my name." As usual we had to ask her to repeat herself and she points to this page in her coloring book and repeats, "I wrote my name. Like daddy taught me."

Of course I am very proud and Jennifer wanted to take credit, so Mia rephrased it to "Like mommy and daddy taught me." But I had to explain to Jennifer that I helped her write her name a few days ago when I made a dotted version of "Mia" and then helped her trace it. (In this drawing I have grayed out everything except for her name to make it stand out better.)
