  • A quick spelling lesson.


    “Is there any F-R-O-S-T-I-E left in the freezer?” I asked Laura as dinner was winding down, unintentionally misspelling the name of the frozen dairy treat from Wendy’s.

    I must have mumbled.

    “Daddy?” Kyle asked. “What does T-I-T spell?”

    It’s just a good thing I didn’t have food in my mouth.

  • Yeah, we’re working on that.


    Laura and I have been emphasizing the importance of good manners to Kyle lately, as he seems to have forgotten how to say “please” and “thank you” consistently. Thus, the following exchange:

    KYLE: Daddy, can I play the Xbox?

    ME: [trying to coax a “please”] Can you play the Xbox…what?

    KYLE: The Xbox 360!
