Just A Quick One

Still hard it on the taxes. Now into the income part of it and it's a royal pain.

Just wanted to share a quick note on Little Bit. This morning on the ride she wanted to play her spelling game. After a few rounds of me throwing out words she said stop. So, I did as requested. She then said,

"Papa."

"What, Honey."

"You do know I spell better than you."

"Yes, you do, so?"

She reaches and takes my hand in hers, I guess to soften the blow she's about to throw my way and continues, "Papa, I want you to give me a hard word. I want a word you'd never be able to spell. A really hard hard word. Okay, Papa."

I thought for a moment, turned to her and gave her beautiful brown eyes a hard stare and said, "Honeybun, are you really sure you want a hard hard word?"

She sighed, put on her stern face with, "Yes, Papa. A hard one."

Me, "Okay, here goes. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

Of course she knew the word having watched Mary Poppins untold times in her short life. She huffed, turned away and said,

"Papa, Nana's right, you're just a smartass, aren't you."

Nana and I need to have a word or two.

I let the smartass slid.

  6. Way to go Little Bit! Can't hardly type from the laughing! I remember when my son was a young one. Some of the things that came from his innocent mouth got me some very dirty looks from his momma.

  8. I bet you either laughed or nearly did when she called you a smartass. Sometimes it's impossible not to, even when you know that it's teaching them the wrong lesson when you do.
