My nose grew an inch longer after I answered "I am!" to my six year old son after he asked me if I was a good speller. He's into spelling in school so I constantly play a game by asking him to spell certain words.
I suck at spelling. I cannot and will not dare compose anything if the spell check option is turned off OR if a dictionary is not beside me. It has been my struggle all these years. I was never a good speller in school. I disliked joining spelling bees. And until today, I do not have confidence in my spelling skills. I suck.
The conversation went something like this:
Me: Josh spell man
Me: What about pants
Josh: Hey Mom are you a good speller?
Me: Spell School
Josh: But are you? Are you a good speller?
Me: I am.
Josh: Then spell Clock
Me: C-L-O-C-K! See? I'm good.
And then he gives me a nod.
Well, for as long as he sticks to 5 letter words I guess I will be a good speller.
