MY turns MG

Matthew is learning to read and that is a great thing!

Tuesday afternoon when I picked him up after his Mad Science club (where they had made slime), he was getting his stuff together. Backpack, snowpants, coat, boots, indoor shoes, and slime.

I looked at his jar of slime and said this slime isn't yours, where is yours? The jar he had, had the initials M.G. on the lid. After a huge discussion, it appears he told the Mad Science instructor that his initials were MG. Now our last name starts with a Y and he knows this!

His reasoning? MY spells my and he doesn't like the word my being his initials. So....he decided he would go with M.G.

Make sense to you?
Isn't being six great!!

Cute! I used to teach first grade, so I have a special place in my heart for 6-year-olds!

That's cute! I don't blame him for thinking that way-my initials are KEN and I think that's strange too ;-)

How cool is a Mad Scientist club!? I have never heard of such a thing before, but I would have LOVED that when I was little...okay, maybe even now! ;-)

Kids are pretty clever-- I think he's a smart guy! My friend's initials are A.M.Y... and her name is Amy!!! She can't wait to get married and change her initials.

Is your son's middle name a "G" by any chance?

That is hysterical!! I have a cousin who is named Kristine Bernadette and their last name starts with S. Her mom specifically named her Kristine and not Christine because she did not want her to have the initials CBS. Me I did not even consider my kids initials when I picked their names. :)

LOL! I love the way they process things... :)

That is too cute. And mad scientist club sounds AWESOME! I sooo wish there was something like that around here for Punky. She is getting WAY to TV focused.
