Will Can Spell! Sort of...

Tom's out of town this weekend, so I volunteered to step in and guest blog once again. And since I'm not very good at posting pictures to the blog, this will be another picture-less (but hopefully entertaining!) blog post.

Last week I gave Will a little box (like a juice box) of chocolate soy milk for snack. He looked at the box for a while, and then started to spell. "C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E..." and then after spelling the word he said "...spells chocolate!" I couldn't believe my ears, so asked him to repeat himself - sure enough, he once again said, "C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E spells chocolate!" At this point I decided Will was a genius.

Fast forward a few hours... Will was getting ready for bed, a process that involves peeing on the potty and then getting a small candy out of the Glad tupperware container we keep on the back of the toilet. While Will was taking care of his business, I was changing Hallie in the next room; all of a sudden Will came running - buck naked (I only mention this because it added to his cuteness at the time) - into Hallie's room and announced excitedly, "Mama, I sink (think) dat (that) G-L-A-D spells candy!"

So he may be smart, but he's no genius. :)
