Zander had me laughing so hard today that I had tears streaming down my face.
We were sitting at the table for homeschooling, and I told Zander he was going to have a Spelling test today. He asked me what a spelling test was, and I said, “It’s where you write down the words I say without looking at them first.”
So, I give him his first word, “Cat.” I look over, and he has his head turned to the side while he’s writing on the paper. You could see him physically straining not to look at the paper, but still get the word on the line. When I asked him what on earth he was doing, he replied, “Mom. You told me I couldn’t look at the words!”
