The "F" Word

File this under: "I Have Nothing Else Exciting to Write About."

William's favorite book as of late is Come Rhyme With Me! He calls it his animal book.

The concept is pretty simple. The book goes through the letters of the alphabet. Each page has an animal that starts with that letter and a corresponding rhyme about that animal.

We read this book every day before nap and sometimes it gets combined with the three or so books we read to him before bed in the evening.

As you might imagine, with this much repetition William has the entire book memorized. Which is fun because then I can pretend my boy is a genius and can already read an entire book at the tender age of two years and two months. Ha! The games we play.

I'll say, "A is for..."

And he finishes with, "Alligator snoozing in the sun. If you dare to tickle him you'd better start to run."

And so on and so forth...

...until we get to the letter F.

F is for Fox.

But every single time I get to this page and read, "F is for..."

William responds with, "...skunk!"

I have no idea why this is. It's the only letter he can't get right. After the seventeenth time I started to find his mistake quite comical so I would laugh. And then he would laugh. And now it's just a game.

I'm pretty sure he knows that F is for Fox by now. But I can't be entirely sure.

Anyway. That's all I have for today.
