spellng bee

Julianna loves reading The Berenstain Bear's and the Big Spelling Bee.  She is fascinated withe the concept of a spelling bee and as she learns to spell more and more words she has been quizzing me at night spelling-bee-style. 

She'll pick up an object with words on it that are also illustrated (such as her V-Tech ABC Apple) and call out words to us along with made up definitions.  Then we have to spell the word back to her. 

It's downright hilarious to hear how she describes things.  And the funny thing is that it's a unique definition every time, but here is tonight's version for your reading pleasure.
