Kelly, though he is only four, is a bit of a smart-alec.Â Today I gave him his velcro backed uppercase alphabet letters, but forgot to give him the board he’s to stick them to.Â He said, “Yo!”Â And when I glanced down he was giving me that look.Â I didn’t immediately see the problem, so I said, “What?”
He rolled his eyes.Â “Fine,” he said.Â Then he picked up his alphabet letters and began placing them on the table like he was matching them to their lowercase counterparts on the board.
“Oh!”Â I exclaimed.Â “Sorry!”Â I grabbed the board and handed it to him.
As he took the board he responded sweetly, “Why thank you.Â You shouldn’t have.”
I raised my eyebrows at him.
He grinned at me and wrinkled his nose.
