P is for ... "You know!"

While I was driving our Grandlittle, Mo, to preschool on Wednesday, I decided to get her assistance with my "P" post for Alphabe-Thursday this week.

Me: Mo, what is your favorite word that starts with the letter P?

Mo: Gwamma, you know the letter P. Pah, pah, pah, P !!!!

Me: I know that P sounds like pah, pah, pah, P! I just want to know what YOUR favorite P word is.


Mo: Well, let me think. P. Pah, pah, pah, P! Gwamma, you said a bad word!

Me: I didn't say a bad word.

Mo: Yes, you did, Gwamma. You said a bad word. You know. P? P? You see the word P?

Me: I didn't say P for potty, I said P like the letter at the beginning of a word like parachute or puppy or...

Mo: Gwamma. You already know P words. Why are you asking me?

Me: (sighing) Yes, I know P words. I just wanted to know what YOUR favorite P word is.

Mo: My favorite P word is P! You know, Gwamma? P? The word P?

Me: Never mind.

Mo: Gwamma! You know what another word is that starts with P. P! Pah, pah,
pah...going to the bathroom! Poo.

Me: Just never mind, Mo. I'll figure out my own P word.

Mo: You said a bad word, Gwamma. You said P. Like pah, pah, pah...

Me: I didn't say a bad word. The letter P is not a bad word.

Mo: You said it again, Gwamma! You said P!

Me: Look Mo! Quick! There's a red slug bug going down the street! Did you see it? There it goes...hurry, hurry, look out your window!


So I guess my P word for this weeks Alphabe-Thursday is P!

And my lesson for the week is not to have a four year old help me with my writing assignments.

And yes, I know. I said a bad word.

Sigh.

They say never ask a question that you are not 100% sure what the answer is! That is from the light of my life...my niece Sarah who is 4 months away from being a lawyer...so you see ..they do grow up....unfortunately.

Great post. Mo sounds like a cutie. She must give you some great laughs and stories.

Terra said...

of that is her P word and of course asking her for help was going to go down that road...she is 4 - potty talk is number 1 in her world! but it made for a great read....

marisworld said...

It never ceases to amaze me how clever your posts are. You can turn a little heap of nothing into a towering mountain of everything. And then some!

Sandy said...

I saw the photo and knew this post was going to be about a grandlittle...:):):) Come on, you know you saw this one coming!!!! LOL

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

haha! "Oh! Poo!" (Hm...that would be along the same lines as your "bad word"! and falls right into the category of what goes into that Potty chair! excuse the pun)....

Love how you so quickly distracted your grandlittle :o) Little ones are the greatest!

Blessings & Aloha!
(and I am pretty excited that even though I messed up and worked on my "P" post when it was supposed to be the "O" post last week...at least for this week, cuz my "P" was ready, I was not once again the last student on your linky-roster!

NanE said...

LOL, LOL! So funny Jenny. When I saw the picture of the "pot" I thought to myself, well... there are a number of "P" words that could go with that picture, I wonder which one Jenny picked (surprised that you would feature any of them, lol)? What a funny post, have a great weekend, Nan

Sometimes, children can be very focused in their thinking! I think the word I might be looking for is 'persistant'!

Gattina said...

Hahaha ! that reminds me of my friend's little sister who screemed from the 1st floor up to the 3rd floor : Mom ! she said shit ! Shit is a bad word, mom, isn't it, and she said shit ! Imagine she said shit, Mom ! she shouldn't say shit ... Mom quickly closed the window.

Amy said...

Jenny! Shame on you, getting your four year old granddaughter to do your homework for you. Tsk Tsk. I expected bett.... wait, that was pretty darn smart! And your granddaughter is awfully intelligent, I mean she associates every letter with the sound it makes, and has a very large P vocabulary. Yup, I think you just aced this class for most creative way to get out of the homework. Good job.

myorii said...

Hee. She is adorable :) I love having conversations with little kids. They are so innocent and honest and will tell it to you as it is. You should have her do Alphabe-Thursday with you every week just to see what interesting conversations you can record :)

Dana @ Bungalow'56 said...

Middlest was in a spelling bee at school recently and this post reminded me of when we were practicing with her. Every time we gave her a word that had to p's in it like happy for instance, she would start spelling the word and then would start giggling after the second p. It happened every time. Things don't change much from age 4 to 11 I guess? Too funny.

Well, even with the 'P' word, it was a post that could still be for General Audiences!
I'm sorry to have missed O and P. If you read my latest post you'll see why. I should be back this week.
