Let's see, I'm guessing it says: "Tricia's our mother." Either that or you've been very sour lately.

Adorable!

Close, Chris. Close...

Christine Marciniak said...

Oh! Of course, you are not only their mother, you are an Author. "Tricia's our author".

Is that closer?

PJ Hoover said...

LOL! It's:

TRICIA
SO YOU ARE A AUTHOR

:)

I figured it out and then saw you had put it in the comments. It helps that I've been deciphering my kids' writing for years. Cute.

Thanks, guys!

Lois, I'm amazed at how much better I've become at fonetik spelling :)

Love it! I get such a kick out of figuring out phonetically spelled words ... it's like a little test to keep the adult mind on it's toes! :-)

Glurg. I'm terrible at phonetic spelling, because I don't read phonetically. I didn't have a clue what that was until I read the comments.

Still, it's pretty cool. :)

I read invented spelling Every.Day.Of.My.Life.

Kelly, I'm always so proud of myself when I can figure it out.

Maybe that's why you read so fast, Miriam :)

LOL, Shelley! I love this! So now more?
