Reading skills

Xmas day by PhylB

She may only have turned five last week but she's definitely mastered all the phonetics of English already, reading all the signs she sees and asking (somewhat tellingly) the other day why every second shop in Glasgow had a 'to let' sign outside.

But what I love most are her own little notes and stories written exactly how she thinks something should be spelled. Just yesterday I noticed on a shopping list she'd written that she wanted to buy 'ham and mushroom peetsus'. In a Scottish accent, that really is spot-on, if completely incomprehensible to anyone Italian!
