Spelling Lessons

The little dude was examining the letters on my t-shirt this morning and started spelling them out.

Toddler: M-O-M
Mama: (smile)

Toddler: I-N-A-T-R-I-X
Mama: Hmmmmm.

Toddler: What's that?
Mama: It's a picture of, uh, bracelets.

Toddler: With a key!

Thanks, Kristen (a.k.a. The Mominatrix), for both the shirt and for making life just that bit more exciting.


For everyone who asked, here's a link to the Zoo & Park from yesterday's post. The animals tend to be on the small side (lots of lemurs and meerkats, no bigger creatures like elephants), but it's a good deal for a $6 admission fee plus parking.

And if you really want the minutia of the day, I've written another guest post at SwingDaddy's. He's coming back tonight. Yay!

Maybe if my bracelets had keys, I wouldn't misplace so much jewelry.

Love your shirt, and your deft explanations!

In reference to a comment you left for me: I am not fluent in any other language, so couldn't find relief in speaking Chinese after my wisdom teeth came out. I love that you said it felt better to speak Chinese after yours were out.

There's no telling what he says the next time I wear the shirt - I'll keep you posted.

Bracelets with a key... oh yeah, explain that one to the wee one!
