{Mommy Moment}

Jeremiah was not interested in his spelling words today. He was actually not paying any attention at all. One at a time I asked him to spell them and then threw in an easy one: we.

Here is how the conversation went between myself and a little boy thinking of playing instead of school...

Mommy: Jeremiah, spell "we".
Jeremiah thinks for a moment while playing with a marker. "W-I-I".
Mommy: No, not "Wii" like a video game. "WE" like WE are going to the store, you and I are going to the store. WE."
Jey thinks for a moment then quickly blurts out: "J-E-R-E-M-I-A-H-M-O-M-M-Y"
