Word of the week: Tasumi

Tasumi (noun): A long high sea wave caused by an earthquake, submarine landslide, or other disturbance 
Magnolia: Papa, are we on the highest floor? 
Brian: Yep.  
M: Good. 
B: Why “good”? 
M: Because it says if there’s a tasumi to go to the highest floors.
A few seconds later...
B: Maggie, if you were pronouncing a word wrong, would you want someone to tell you? 
M (happily): Papa, I know I’m pronouncing a word wrong. 
B (laughs): Which word? 
M: Tasuemi
Sometimes we wonder how much to correct these mistakes and how much to let them just figure things out.

I love that you asked her if she would want to know if she was doing something "incorrectly". She's figuring out all kinds of things...with confidence! Great parenting Brian. ❤
Love, Teresa
