Utterly logical

So, Devlin had a little pearl of wisdom for us tonight, shared over strawberry ice cream with gummy bears on top.

"Mom, do you know how you spell Lightning McQueen?"

"How do you think you spell Lightning McQueen, son?"

Long pause.

"E-V-E-D-I-X-O-N-D-E-V-L-I-N -D-I-X-O-N".

Those are all the words he knows how to spell. I think he wanted to impress us.

It worked.

That's CUTE!

Haha, that reminds me of his dad asking how to spell MTC when we dropped off his grandparents there. We told him what the letters stood for and the whole nine yards, and he said, "Oh, I thought you spelled it e-m-p-t-y -s-e-a.

So cute! I love hearing kid stories about what they say when they can talk! B/c mine isn't there yet!

The first thing I noticed about this is the strawberry ice cream with gummy bears. This is also Carters favorite combo. Must be a kid thing. It was fun to have you guys visit!

He must have a fixation with spelling because last time I visited he would spell for me, but use the most creative and lengthy mixture of letters you'd ever heard. Sounds like he's upgraded to spelling with actual words, albeit the wrong ones. P.S. Claudia that is the funniest story about Dave! Ha ha!
