Spelling Games

Messing with kids can be fun some times. Our 4 year old is learning to read and spell and now he spells out words to us when he wants stuff. We retaliate by spelling things back. That leads to lots of spelling.

Recently, this fun phrase came up...

"What does W-H-A-T-V-I-C spell?" Vic asked us.

"What, Vic?" We all said, laughing.

"I said, what does W-H-A-T-V-I-C spell?" He asked again.

"What, Vic?" We all said, laughing harder.

"Tell me! What does..."

We let it go on for a while. Funny stuff. Really. Don't tell me "should have been there." You just were there, biatch...My writing transported you. Oh, snap!

P.S. Is that the right way to use snap? I hear people say it ALL the time and it sounds so cool I thought I would try it. Someone hipper than me please offer guidance and direction. Thanks.

I could ask my teens and their friends for you if you like, but I truly don't have a clue.

Ahhhh snap! ;-) (I asked my student for guidance...I'm not that hip!).

:) You post was funny. The What, Vic, not so much, but your post was funny!

We've taught our two year old how to say "oh, snap." It's adorable! That's a cute, funny story. Thanks for sharing. :)

So did I "snap" right? If a two year old can do it, I hope I can, too.


You really did have to be there to hear the exasperated tone of voice. When I wrote it I knew it wasn't the same, so I had to smart-ass it up at the end ;-)

Hey, I did a spelling post today, though not as funny as yours!

My kids also say SNAP and the whole family says YO in many different contexts.
