Made in China

This afternoon while the girls were unloading the dishwasher:

M (picking up one of Isaak's cups):  Look, Mommy, this cup was made in China!
J (little-miss-know-it-all):  Lots of things are made in China, Macey.
M:  I know that, but I can tell this one was because it says on the bottom "Made in China".
A (picking up one of the coffee mugs):  Jaela and Macey, look!  THIS cup says "Made in China" too!
J & M:  Anya!
J:  How do you know?!?
M:  Did you READ that?!?
A:  MOMMY!!!!  I can read "Made in China"!

Such excitement!  :)  

Anya tells me that she can read a few words -- cat, dog, God, Jaela, Macey, Anya, Isaak...and now "Made in China" too!  And I could tell her that she can actually read quite a few more words besides those...but she IS only four.  I think I'll wait a little longer before we fully open THAT particular can of worms.  :)
