Rhyme Time

Staley loves to rhyme.  It has become a part of our daily life.  Staley will be in the midst of conversation and then realize that she can make a rhyme from something she just said.  And although some of her rhyming still consists of making up non-sense words to rhyme with a word (like silly and tilly), she is more often coming up with legitimately rhyming words.

The other night at dinner, Staley was talking about the new dominoes game that Aunt Sandi and Emma brought over.  She said, "Aunt Sandi and Emma gave me dominoes."  And then, in a moment of inspiration, she said, "Dominoes.  Vámonos.  That rhymes."  So now, not only is my daughter rhyming, she is rhyming in 2 languages.  (Thank you, Dora!)

Of course, we also had an unfortunate rhyming mishap when Staley and Zach were coming up with words to rhyme with 'front.'  And although she made a correct rhyme, we felt it best to quickly change the subject to keep her from repeating her new rhyme.  We have also chosen to stay clear of words like 'luck', 'witch', and 'lamb'...just to be on the safe side.

  1. I remember once Cade had to do a rhyming assignment for school and he was to pick a word and write 10 words that rhymed with it. He picked truck. Nice. (and just think, Staley is doing kindergarten work- that is what Olivia is doing rhyming in kindy!)
