While at the check out line, I mentioned to my husband that Son #1 was learning to sound out the word "grass". Pride filled my husband's eyes as he said to our eldest son. "That's cool! Good job, son!"
Son #1 quickly responded. "Yeah! I can sound out grass!"
Then, Son #1 asked in an innocent yet booming voice. "Did you know that grass has ASS in it?"
My eyes caught my husband's eyes as I smirked in impish delight.
He suppressed a giggle then replied seriously. "Yes, son. Grass does have ASS in it. You sound it out like this. Gr...ASS."
My shoulders shook hard as I tried to quiet my laughter.
Son #1 repeated loudly. "Yeah! Gr...ASS!"
Could the phonetic end of grass be shouted out a bit more loudly?
I love my son's innocence. He will never know how much I enjoyed hearing the word ASS repeated over and over at the grocery store.
