Kids say the funniest things!


I forgot about this G-ism:  Gregory said this back in May of 2010….he was just beginning to recognize letters…and the sound the letter made….and would often question the complexity of English….not with those exact words…but questioning why certain letters were called what they were called… why is a W called a double U….why isn’t it called a double-V…so true….anyway this is him trying to write his last name….and identify the letters as he is writing.   He asked me to write MARINO on a piece of paper…then he would copy…and as he was writing….he said:

” M    A   R   Line Dot  N   O”

I asked him to repeat what he said…because at first I was not clear on the fourth letter…he said it again:

“M  A  R  Line Dot  N  O”

And it was then that I realized he was calling the lower case i……a Line Dot.

Makes perfect sense to me!
