I Know That Word

Like many parents, we sometimes spell words in an attempt to keep what we're talking about secret from Dawson. Well, our little smart boy has caught onto our little trick. He now recognizes several of the words we verbally spell. He long ago realized that B-E-A-R spelled bear (he has a little bear that he is very attached to and always wants nearby). He also recognizes P-O-O-L and P-I-Z-Z-A. And the other night he was wanting some Little People toys and I told Randy they were in the B-U-S and Dawson said, "B-U-S, bus, where's bus, Dad?" So then we started testing him on some other words and, surprisingly, he knows the spelling of many words. He's a sharp little guy.
