"Wua...Wua...Wua. Wa...wa...wa. One." Maxfield said as he stared at his alphabet and number place mat sounding out various letters and words. "The number one starts with W."
He was very proud of himself.
"Actually Max, when you spell the number one, it starts with an O." I corrected him. "It makes the W sound but it is an O."
Max stared at me with a confused look as his lips pursed making a W sound. Grasping the English language is challenging to a four year old.
"Actually Max," Lauren chimed in from across the room. "The word won, as in, I won the game, starts with the letter W. So you are kinda right."
Max beamed as his mother confirmed his spelling and word sounding skills. Lauren walked over and rustled his hair. Max looked up at her and smiled.
"Mommy," he said. "You are more smarter than Daddy."
Wait until he finds out that the Knuckle Sandwich I give him starts with the letter K.
