A Little Thing
You never realize how many acronyms surround us until you have a child who is learning to read. Sam is constantly being baffled by "words" without vowels. I try to explain it to her, but she is so excited by reading that she doesn't care. And I don't want to dampen that enthusiasm, so I don't correct her very often. Today, she cracked me up by reading "Hubble." "Mommy, look - it says Hubble! Hubble! Hubble!" She was pointing at my computer screen so I looked for an ad for something space-related, until I realized that she was reading, "HBL."
