“Spell the word frog.”
“F-R-O-G.” He searched my eyes hopefully to see if he had gotten it right.
I nodded. He beamed, proudly.
“Good! Spell… Blog? Wait. Really? Blog is your spelling word?”
“YOU have a blog, mommy! How many followers do you have now?”
Oh. You know do about that, don’t you?
I made up a number. My actual number of followers vs the “real” number of active readers… vastly different, but that is not something you can explain to a five year old during spelling word practice.
“Wow!” He sounded impressed.
I may have exaggerated a wee bit.
“Ok, now spell the word. Blog.”
“Perfect!” I gave him a high five.
The things they teach kids in Pre-K nowadays… *shakes head in disbelief*
