While reviewing the youngest's latest batch of schoolwork:
ME: Ummm, how do you spell "lion" (on the paper as "liyon")?
Youngest: Uhhh, like that isn't it?
ME: Nope, but what I really don't get is this: Where is the story at that you are answering these questions?
Youngest: Up above in the paper
ME: And so the lion in question is spelled correctly in the story...right?
Youngest: Umm, yeah.
ME: So why'd you misspell the word then?
Youngest: Umm, I don't know. (then runs away as if I'm going to beat the child for it)
