You Know Your Kid is Smart When...

...she corrects your errors and typos on your blog and she's only eight years old.

This is the second time Mika has publicly corrected an error on my blog. See the comments section for the last post if you want to read her admonishment to me. What's a homeschool mom to do? I could ban her from reading my blogs. I could explain, again, the concept of typos and tell her to lay off. Or I could spell check my posts and do a better job proofreading.

The last one is the best choice given that I'm trying to teach her to write well and proofread her own work. There is just one problem with that; I am often typing quickly while nursing a baby who is kicking my keyboard and fretting about getting dinner done or getting out the door on time. That doesn't leave a lot of time for proofreading.

So, if you notice my typos, grammatical errors, awkward sentences, or whatever other error there may be in my writing, please extend me some grace while my daughter teaches me English. : )

If J read my blog, I bet she'd make typo corrections in my comments too :)
