My Little Speller!

If I can help it, I would prevent my son from eating sweets, like candies and chocolates. That’s because we have a family history of diabetes. These sweet treats are usually not included in my weekly grocery list, but every once in a while, my heart softens and I buy my little boy a few sugary goodies that I give to him in small portions. One of the things he likes is Ovalteenies. According to Wikipedia, “Ovalteenies are round sweets made of compressed Ovaltine.”

A few days ago, he asked for Ovalteenies, but before he could open the small packet of Ovalteenies, he noticed something odd, and he quickly showed it to me.


Justin: Mommy, did they make a mistake?

Mommy: What mistake, son?

Justin: Here, Mommy (showing me the back portion of the Ovalteenie packet containing a trivia). Look at this word, Mommy. It’s spelled M-A-O-D-E.

Mommy: Oh, yes, Justin, you’re right! That should be spelled “M-A-D-E.”

At 5 years old, my son can already spell simple words, and he was quick to notice the misspelling in the Ovalteenie packet. This simply shows that he’s learning more and more each day and that he’s applying what he’s learning in school and at home. That makes me a happy mom!

  2. now that catch truly deserves a packet of Ovalteenies! good job, justin!

    i learned to read and write at the age of 4, and by 5, i was already in Grade 1. i felt so weird then being the smallest and youngest kid at my class, but i find that kids nowadays are really getting onto it at very young age. way to go for the younger generation! 😀

    thanks for joining Happiness Is. see you there again next week for another round of happy posts 🙂

  3. my little girl likes to do spelling too and she is also five years old 🙂 what grade is your son Sis? Visiting back this time from my 4th Happiness Is entry, hope that you can return the visit too.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
