Spelling Whiz

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

My daughter was talking to her friend. He was explaining how he was writing “D-A-D-D-Y” because that is how his father’s name is spelled. Elise’s eyes opened wide as she exclaimed, “That’s my daddy’s name too!”

Spelling It Out

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

My son and I were at the Bookmobile picking out library books when I realized I had forgotten my library card. The clerk said, “No problem. How do you spell your name?” My son replied, “M-O-M-M-Y”.

Spelling Show-Off

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

My son has learned how to spell a few words, so he was demonstrating at the dinner table. His dad asked him to spell the word “baseball.” Without missing a beat, he said, “P-H-I-L-L-I-E-S.”

Directionally Challenged

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

girl pintingMy husband was working with our daughter  on some basic spelling. He’d say a word, spell it for her, and then repeat the word. This went on and on as usual until he came to the word “up.” He said, “Up. ‘U-P.’ Up.” To which, Lyla very quickly replied, “No, Daddy. I pee down.”
