My six year old son is quite the little character, even the osteopathic therapist said so himself. This child of mine never goes without leaving someone smiling, tilting their head in confusion or shaking their head in disbelief. The other morning we were trying to get ready for school when K decided to have a fun time sounding words out, this is his new thing. K is often found spelling out words by sounding them out, today it was:
K asked me what GIC spells I said that it really doesn’t spell anything, but if you sound out the letters what could it be?
Then the word was sounded out, with a soft G sound. He smiled. I laughed and smiled back and said, “sure, that works!”
Then it happened, the reason why this child of mine is the one who keeps me on my toes …
“Mama, what if you replace the G with a D”
No he did not. Yes, he did. He did ask that question, with a sly sarcastic smile upon his face.
I told him that would spell a word sounding like a bad word, that I am not going to say.
He smiled, again asked, “Mama, what will that word be? Say it” … while he attempted to wipe the grin off of his face.
The conversation ended with him, thankfully, not saying what that word would sound like and me not saying what the word would sound like either.
I hope our next sounding words out session goes a little less boyish.
The joys of boys; farts and body parts amuse them often.
