Spelling Words

Dear Heir and Spare,

I would like to let you know that I am no longer enjoying practicing spelling with you. What started as a simple homework assignment has become yet another way for the 2 of you to prove your intellectual superiority over your mother. We started with simple words like election, review and territory. But now you have turned the tables on me. You are testing me. You are plotting to see if you can trick me. You are going to make the men come and take me away in the crazy wagon sooner. So let's clear things up. I am the tester, I will be the only one asking anyone to spell anything in the car ride home. You will no longer ask me to spell I C-u-p or ask me to say lettuce and then spell c-u-p, I now know what a PT is. I fell for it once (maybe twice) but I will not fall for it again because I am

 The Spelling Enforcer


 Love,
Mommy

Oh, god I remember the PT gag from when I was pulling it! You had to get smart and answer "Yes, I am potty trained but no i am not a pregnant teen-ager" when you're friends tried to pull that one.

Wow, what fun to look forward to (said with trepidation)!

FYI, I just awarded you 2 blog awards! You can see them on my site. :)
