We were discussing the whole "I" before "E" except after "C" deal. And how it can seem hard to learn all of the rules.
Then he said with a straight face and a sweet voice, "I made up a new word today. It sounds like "chuckle," but it's "fuckle.'"
You try not laughing.
Some moms might have corrected such a word. But he said he found it in a word search at school. So I'm sure we will be working that into a sentence somehow tomorrow. You know how we are.
Okay, I didn't google it in front of him. But there are a few definitions. Some are a little too heavy for a 10 year-old. Even in this house. But I'm sure I can figure something out.
