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."

  1. Harry Binswanger should use this as advertising. "The HBL list: Helping you to see distant things more clearly, just like the Hubble Telescople." and "The HBL list: Even if you don't learn anything, your 4 year old will!" Okay, maybe not the last one. :)
