Chuckles and I were at his grandparents' house last night. Not wanting my in-laws to think I am raising a puppy, I had Chuckles showing off his new phonics skills. Below is a transcript of the ensuing conversation.
Me: What's the first letter in dog?
Ch: Duh, Duh, Duh, D.
Me: Right. What's the first letter in Bailey? (Bailey is the dog's name.)
Ch: Buh, buh, buh, B.
Me: Right again. What's the first letter in Mom.
Ch: M-O-M. Mom.
Me: But what's the first letter?
Ch: M?!?!? (looking at me like I'm an idiot since he just spelled the whole thing.)
Me: What's the first letter in toilet?
Ch: Puh, puh, PEE.
Me, MIL, FIL: ((Hysterical Laughter))
Me: Ha ha, catching breath. Can't breathe. What's the first letter in fork? Huff, puff.
Ch: clearly thinking he is onto something. Fuh, Fuh, PEE.
Peanut Gallery: giggle.
