Stalk vs Stalk
Nail vs Nail
asshole vs an AssholeThe Boogerlickers have been studying Homophones and Homonyms (thats what those words are up there) the last week or two so it was a bit ironic discovering Harriet the Honda had a nail in her tire. She went to the tire doc over the weekend and Lil Duck had an interesting time processing the difference between a finger nail and a roofing nail. I think I did a pretty good job of explaining the difference between the two once I realized she was a we bit confused. And of course I got a good chuckle out of it when she first asked me how Harriet got a finger nail stuck in her tire.
I took her out and we looked at the nails backing out of the wood on our deck (because I am slacking in some of the upkeep…I’m busy so shut it) and she caught on very quickly. She’s an extremely bright three year old which is why I know it will be a total breeze when it comes time to explain the difference between an asshole and an Asshole (<-- yes there is a difference). I even have picture aids for that one! I might also steal her line when I teach that lesson…. She comes up with the greatest stuff (is it any wonder though? She IS my kid….)
Last night while at Meet The Teacher night for pre-school she spotted her name on some of her school supplies saying, “Mom! That cup has my name on it!” to which I asked, “…and what is your name?” She recited her full name, first, middle and last and ended with, “That’s it….the real story.”
Man, I love that kid! She cracks me sideways!!
And did I mention she’ll be in the duck room?! Lil Duck is gonna be a DUCK!!
