This morning my son asked me to spell one of the character’s names from Cars.
Without hesitation, I replied:
M – A – T – T – E – R
“That’s not right dad! There’s only one ‘T’ in Mater.”
Then he went to his dry erase board on the fridge to show me:
“Yep,” I said, “that looks right Adam.” Inside I was thinking, ‘Jeez… I just figured he wanted to know. I didn’t think this was a quiz… or that I’d fail.’
Something’s not right when your three year old is correcting your spelling.
