Penguiny Goes To Work

Earlier this week Lars handed me his stuffed penguin and informed me that “Penguiny is going to work today.” So he did.

Lars gets another yo-yo

His first yo-yo, a much prized possession went missing. It was gone for about a week, and he has yo-yo club after school. Kelly, being a big softie, ran out to get him a replacement at midnight.

For anything else we would have just told him “tough, you gotta keep track of your things,” but, for some reason we both agreed. So off she went. And got 3. Just in case. Luckily yo-yos are cheap.

Then the funny thing. This morning when reading the card that came with his replacement:

The original. World’s #1 Yo Yo

But he read it “The original. World’s hashtag one yo-yo”

Not subtraction

Dad: you need to do your addition cards
Lars: you mean subtraction
Dad: no addition
Lars: “ab,” it’s “abtraction”
Dad: no…
Lars: yes
Dad: it’s add
Lars: no, “abtraction”
Dad: add, “addtraction”
Lars: oh…”addtraction”
Dad: wait, no…never mind. What’s 7+5?
