For seven years I've been playing the spelling game. When something doesn't need to be heard by sensitive ears I spell it... and today it all came back to me.
Today we are shopping and Kyle says to me -
"Mom, that is C-R-A-P...." (he is right... but wait one second... did you just pull an April... WHAT?)
I hold back my hearty laugh and ask him...
"What does that spell?" And the kid doesn't miss a beat.
"Mom, that spells crap."
Freakin' awesome. So if you are a speller of words learn your lesson from me - one day they will know how to put letters together into words and your spelling days will be over.
I did talk to him about why it wasn't a good thing to do; for the record. I also laughed later about him using the word correctly.
Now off to do laundry - trying to put together outfits for a week of being away. Off to 2010 games! Showcasing the Gold Rush area of BC!
