Because I Live with a Genius

Or because I live with several?

Mom: "Mary, do you have a spelling test tomorrow?"

Mary: "No Mom, it was today."

Mom: "Oh no..."

Mary: "Don't worry, I only missed 'cabbage'."

David: "That silent 'a' gets me every time too."

Mom: "The silent 'a'?"

Mary: "Yeah Mom. The silent 'a' rule. You know."

No, I don't know.

I have never laughed so hard! Somehow I missed that rule too. Maybe we need to go back to school. Love, Nana

New math and now new english?

I don't know how we graduated without calculators or spell check!

My dd got in on the tail end of the "clapping English rules". Shirley something or whether I think. It was like a lil kids patty cake rhyming game to remember things. I am glad we just had to remember basic phonics aren't you?
