A Mommy Moment.

We were driving home from church today, passing through the section of town where all the restaurants are. Timothy is actively trying to read, so he was making sure he knew everything we passed by. Well, he had extra time to study the word H-O-O-T-E-R-S because we were at a stoplight! The sounding out went something like this:

"Hoo"

"That's right, honey." (hoping he would stop)

"Hoooooo's"

"Good sounding out, Timothy," and yet he knew it wasn't "complete", so he kept working...

"Hooooooooor's"

"Mom, it's Hor's!" (say it out loud, just as I've typed it-I'm not even making it up)

And then the light turned green.

***I shared this story, not because it's necessarily my favorite mommy moment, but so that I could have the classiest anecdote on 5 Minutes for Mom Motherhood Carnvial. Don't let anyone tell you motherhood isn't exciting. Head over there and read other funny (and I'm sure more tasteful) stories!

Oh goodness. I suppose it is an easy first word and all, strictly phonetically speaking. :-)
