Dinner Conversation

This was our dinner conversation last night...

Wade: Clayton, I want for you to eat all of your roast and vegetables without complaining. I'm not going to argue with you tonight about dinner.
Clayton: Do you know what pugnacious means?
{Wade & I look at each other dumbfounded.}
Wade: Um, no.
Clayton: It means one who enjoys a battle.
Wade: Well, I'm not feeling pugnacious. Eat your dinner.

Which begs the question: Why did I spend so much time in SAT prep courses trying to raise my verbal score when I could have just been watching WordGirl??? :)

Clayton cracks me up. I am laughing so hard I am crying. Mr. Dewar would be amazed. He would encourage you to have Clayton be the first 4 year old to take the SAT. The College Board should look into Word Girl.

So funny! I had to tell Tim about this one. You all need your own reality show - I'd watch!
