spelling missteps ...

The great thing about kids is that they often give you things to laugh about without even realizing it. It happens here pretty much every day. Sometimes, you squeeze them and they explode (literally). Sometimes, they draw crazy pictures. Sometimes, they mix up the facts. And sometimes, they blame their troubles on their parents.

Yesterday, Dizzle made me laugh (and everyone on Facebook) with her spelling. Like everyday, I was quizzing her on her vocabulary words. I asked her to spell "don't". She replied ...

"That's easy. It's D... O... N... suppository ... T."

I didn't have the heart to tell her otherwise. So, instead I just turned away and laughed. Yeah, I'm a good mother like that.
