6 Days and Counting!

It's been 6 days since Maddie has watched any T.V!

We've been doing a lot more of this...

I was shocked when Maddie picked up the book Hop on Pop by Dr. Suess and said, "Hop Pop"
We read it last night before bed time but I didn't know she knew the name of it.  
But then it got even better.  
She opened the book to the cup on pup page and she actually said, "cup, pup"
I was really impressed but THEN she turned the page and said, "house, mouse"
I was speechless!  
She's been listening so attentively lately and she's really picking up on things.  
I didn't even know she knew how to say house, let alone recognize it in a picture.  

Before we began the no T.V. rule, she wouldn't even sit long enough to let me finish a book.  
Now, she's paying closer attention than I could have ever imagined!! : )


  1. Good for you that you are creating in her a love for books! Children are taught to love what we love.
