in school, mikee's starting to learn how to read and spell some common 3-letter words ... yesterday, we were practicing her spelling skills ... we did the basic "c-a-t, cat!" and "d-o-g, dog!" ... and then, we moved to a simple 4-letter word ...
me: "what about 'mama'?"
mikee: "n-i-n-a, mama!"
then she said, "mama, i know how to spell 'market'"
ok, now that's a 6-letter word which i don't really expect her to know but i still played along with her ...
me: "ok, spell market ... "
mikee: "a-m-k, market!"
lol ... see, amk stands for ang mo kio hub where the supermarket is :D she'd always read out the amk sign outside the mall whenever we do our shopping there ...
