Zogg's

What are Zogg's?

On Sunday, as we were getting ready to go to our school pool for a swim, Michael told me that we had to remember to bring Ella's Zogg's. Puzzled at first, I quickly caught on. We had returned from Stanley Market earlier in the morning after buying Ella some new arm floaties - Zogg's were the brand name.

Puzzled again, I asked Michael why he called them Zogg's. His response was simply this, "I read it. This is a Z, this is an O and the letter on the end is an S, but I forgot these letters."

Amazing. Just amazing. He's learning to read.

Now before I'm completely ready to watch this new phase of Buddy's life begin, I also want to put this picture of him in my post. It was taken just tonight. It's my little boy trying on his father's baseball uniform. (Joey is off to Manila to coach his baseball team in two days).



It reminds me that while Buddy is busy doing all this growing up, he is still my little baby boy.

What a great post. The picture is a good visualization to show that Michael is still a little boy. He looks so small in that picture.

I tried to access Gilly's site for a read of a fellow mother's website but it has restricted access. Do you think she would allow me access if I asked her kindly?
