My little babies are growing up.

Bskde! I love this! I know adults who still call it that.

x said...

Oh man, that is really touching. Thank you again for being a teacher!

Scope said...

"Bskde" is now the OFFICIAL spelling! Awesome!

And this is why I love teaching the wee ones!

Irish Gumbo said...

Bskde and met balls are a classic dish!

*sniff* I might make me a bowl tonight.

Dee at Pedestrian Palate said...

Awwwww. I love phonetic spelling.

Mrs. E said...

Love this!! (Well, with kindergartners. When they spell like this in HS--it isn't nearly so cute!) Adorable! Good job, teach!

Cheryl said...

I love it. Had a brother who used a P instead of a B.

Boozy Tooth said...


I love Bskde too!!

And everyone knows bskde wouldn't be bskde without met balls.

justmakingourway said...

It really is the best when they start to write on their own, isn't it? The most creative spelling you have ever seen!

Lynn Kellan said...

It took me a while to figure out what bskde meant... totally cute!

Liss said...

That is priceless. I think day are Yume too!

Cora said...

Awwwwwww, cuuuuuuute!

Although, once they start doing that then you can't spell things around them anymore because they'll figure out what you're saying.

We just reached that point with the 6 year old I take care of. I spelled D-O-N-U-T the other day in a secret hush-hush conversation, and the 6 year old yelled from across the room, "I know you're talking about donuts!! So where are they?!"


Should have gone the fancy route and spelled it D-O-U-G-H-N-U-T. That would have shown him.

Whenever I see that dotted line I am rocketed back to grammar school.

I have no idea what bskde means. I'm also too tired to sound it out and I want to kill my upstairs neighbors.

You are a wonderful teacher...it shows in how your cheer your students on and realize that they are learning so much from you.

When my daughter was about 18 months old, I was asking her if she wanted more BSKDE. Hubs got all huffy and said not to talk ababy talk to her. I said not to be ridiculous, she couldn't say "Spaghetti" at 18 mos! I looked at her and the little shit said, "Spuh-geddy!"

As Cape Cod Turns said...

Yummy! I like pasgetti and meatballs too!!!!

I needed this today! Maybe going back to the classroom and teaching first grade again won't be such a bad thing after all. Thanks for the smile this morning.

Malisa said...

darkwitless said...


I promised Anymommy that I'd leave a comment at the blogers I love to read to let them know that their words count! Someone is reading and your words mean something to me...and then you use WORDS from those little people learning how to use written words for your post!

Even the universe agrees! Your words (written and spoken!) count and make a difference. Thanks!

Beth P. said...

bskde is one of my favorites as well! Adorable. You must be SO proud!

Anonymous said...

Adorable... sometimes I really wonder why on earth I'm going to school to teach high school instead of kindergarten? *sigh*

Grace's Mom said...

Jenkins drew inspiration from the 1978 Superman film starring Christopher Reeve. Like Marston, she wanted to make Wonder Woman a character to look up to.
