Alternate Universe

Only when you’re the parent of a 6-year-old who’s just starting to get this whole reading/writing thing, would you applaud the fact that he wrote, “Your but smells bad” on the white board in the kitchen.

Then, after you tell him how smart he is having written that all by himself, do you gently tell him that he needs to add a second “t” onto the synonym for the word derriere.

His snarky sentence remains on the board at this very moment, but hopefully I’ll remember to erase it before company comes over and gets the wrong idea.
