"Are there times when you know a word but you aren't sure what it means and you say it and it's all wrong?"
Last night Mia was explaining why she needed another blanket on her bed. Something about her drink of water making her tummy cold and when she is cold she needs another blanket because when her tummy is full of cold water it feels very distinctive. Distinctive? That's when she asked the question about a word being all wrong.
After church last night she did it. Used the wrong word. Wow. It was really the wrong word. Let's just say that I saved a certain someone from what was likely to become one of his most embarrassing moments. He owes me, but he doesn't know it. And Mia, completely innocent in her little word mix up.
Collin tells of a time when I wasn't home. Mia was SO mad at him. In what sounds close to a fit of rage, she yelled at him, "Collin, you are so ... so ... SATISFACTORY!" The kids all burst out laughing at her. Wrong word at just the wrong moment. Sigh.
