Having the most challenging family member be preliterate is handy, since the rest of us know how to S-P-E-L-L.
Being able to communicate in a way that keeps our little Joe out of the loop is great when someone wants to sneak outside unencumbered by an enthusiastic tag-along.
The only problem is when that wannabe interloper is too smart for his own good. For instance, when Joe one day asked, “Can I go “o-u-t”?
This was our response, in cat form:
(Thanks, Queven of pixabay, for the image.)
So much for that “secret code.”
Another gem, from roughly a year ago, was when Joe claimed he couldn’t take his nap because, “I need to help my sister with her math question.” I’m sure, at two-years-old, he was a whiz at 4th grade math.
Then again, who knows with this kid. (Repeat image of wide-eyed cat above.)
Finally, check out my blog buddy Frank’s Beach Walk Reflections for some peace and zen. If you need a break from the daily grind, sink your toes into some warm, wet sand and relax. 🙂
Have a great week!
