This post is absolutely not brought to you by the letter "S"

This is just one example of why four-year-olds shouldn't be elected president or perform brain surgery. Or a lot of other things.

Two things you should know:
  1. We don't watch a lot of tv. But Evan does kind-of-semi-regularly watch Sesame Street. On public television (ie, PBS).
  2. He is going through this thing where he constantly asks us to spell words. 273 times a day. (254 of those words are "dinosaur," by the way.) I'll be ready for Scripps any day now.

So the other day:

Evan: "Mommy, how do you spell 'PBS?'"

Me: "Well, let me think about that...."

Evan: "P! B!... But what's the last letter?"

Me: "Hmmm. S, maybe?"

Evan: "No!!! It's not S! You're wrong!"

Me: "What letter is it?"

Evan: "L."

And that was the end of the discussion.

Any questions? I'm sure Evan will be happy to answer them for you.


  1. Okay, that is too funny!! That sounds exactly like my little E: "No!!! It's not S!"


Like it? Hate it? Any other reaction? Leave me a comment!
