Last night Meg and I were working on her homework. I was showing her what happens to a word when you add the letter Y to it. So we went through a list of words…
Soap + y = Soapy
Toast+ y = Toasty
Sleep + y = Sleepy
You get the idea! After we were done talking about how adding the Y to each word could change it’s meaning, I was having her use each word in a sentence. Here’s how it went…
“Okay Meg how about soapy?”
Meg: “I get all soapy when I get in the bath tub.”
“Good Meg! How about toasty?”
Meg: “When we go to Grandma’s we sit in front of the fireplace to get toasty.”
“Very good Meg! How about sleepy?”
Meg: “That one’s easy! My Mommy is always sleepy!”
My sister sitting on the other side of the table started to snicker.
Meg: “Well you are Mommy!”
There are some things you just can’t hide from your kids!
