What Victor said...

Sometimes children say things that are so smart!
They are just doing their kiddie noticing...but the things they say, are brilliant.
Here is one that V-man said:
"Mama, the double u (W) should actually be called the double (V) b/c when
you write it it actually looks like two (Vs)."
He is right.
"You know what?," I said to him, "In Spanish it is called a double (V) and not a
double (U)."
That is in Spain they say it that way.
I have heard other people--Spanish speakers here in the U.S.
say "Doble U"--not "doble uve"
His eyes twinkled when I told him that, he got it....
He said we should say it that way in English too, mama.

Now, if only he could understand the dirty socks/clean socks cycle.
Bethany, your post cracked me up!!
V-man squirrels his dirty socks away--so he can save them up so he will have a pair.
ugh...we do laundry every day!!
But then, his socks are no in with the other dirty clothes.
I got so angry over this--and I do mean angry--I began to holler
about it.
I wonder if he will get the point???
I sure hope he does, his stinky feet are SO EMBARRASSING!

I was really gonna post about carving the pumpkin, and the yearly fit my kids throw when we
do this...maybe it's the time of day??
But, I cannot find the pictures.
They have disappeared themselves from the computer. :)

That is clever, V! Those are good moments, when we can twinkle at them, and they are so smart. :) Yes! The socks! The {daily} laundry! I asked Jadyn where the match to a sock was, and she said "I wore it yesterday" - so now, they know they are wearing non-matches, and they don't care either. Good grief. The stinky feet are the worst. I started telling the girls they would get itchy athlete's feet. That has helped a little, but added another complication. They change their socks more! :) Have a good day... lets volley soon...
