My son has suddenly started "spell speaking". Since he can't really spell yet it makes for some interesting comments. For example, he will spell a word and then ask me what the word is. So the conversation typically goes like this:

HIM: "Mommy, what does X-Y-O-N-A-N-F-H-W spell?"
ME: "Nothing."
HIM: "No! Tell me. What does it spell?"
ME: "Zee on anph hwa."
HIM: "Mommy, that's not a word."

The worst part is that my 3-year old tries to get in on the act as well. Same conversation. Different letters.

The other fun part is hearing the new colloquialisms re-tooled. Here are some of the more recent interpretations:

  • What the C?
  • I F-A-T you!
  • Oh, my G-O-B.
As you can see, it's time to clean up the household vernacular because one day soon, he's going to get it right.

Cute! Gavin does that to me as well - throws out random letters and asks me what they spell. He giggles at the nonsense words. Heh.
