Because G is a bit behind, I'm becoming adept at disguising reading skill practice. "I Spy" has varied to "I Spy Something that Rhymes with". We look for numbers and letters on signs. G helps me count things out and tally dollars spent in our grocery shopping list.
G takes after his mother.
On the ride home tonight, I distracted a whiny G by telling him that two raccoons had just run near the car and I'd almost hit them.
"Raccoon! R! Rrr, rrr, rrr! Raccoon starts with arrrrgh!"
He'd made an adorable paper bag raccoon puppet weeks ago.
I'm pretty sure the cute puppet's tongue and bottom lip are supposed to be attached to the bag and not the bag of Raccoon's face. I'm also pretty sure the coloring is toward the scribble scrabble end of the coloring spectrum.
"Rrrr, like rrrr, rrr, rrrroadkill," I answered.
He shot back, "Like rrr, rrr, rrrun over."
