What Happens When You Have an Early Reader


I was in the bathroom getting ready for the day, and Leif came in.

Leif: “I need to look through the Deeguest.”

Me: “The what?!”

Leif: “The Deeguest.”

He starts going through the stack of Reader’s Digest magazines on the back of the toilet. Oh, DIGEST.

Me: “What are you looking for?”

Leif: “When Dad is 41, he will lose 8 of his muscles every time he has ten birthdays. I have to find it and show him. I think it is in this one.”

(It seems the boys were having a conversation about how old Dad would be on his upcoming birthday.)

He takes the Reader’s Digest to his Dad and shows him… “Over 40? You can lose 8% of your muscle every 10 years (You do the math.)”… An add for Ensure.

“Daddy, you need this.” Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!!! I guess that is what happens when your 5 year old reads every page of the Reader’s Digest while doing his business.

The "Dee-guest" kind of thing happens at my house too. Ian once confidently referred to the genre of "Skee-fee." [sci-fi] And of course, you need "wee-fee" for your Internet connection.

Hannah~ LOL! Those are classic!

Leif was reading the titles on my Netflix queue and said Piescotch instead of Psych. I'm going to be really sad when he can pronounce everything...
