The Know-it-all

Serial posting here.

I was counting from one to ten in Spanish while I gave William his Flovent yesterday. And I figured, what the heck, why not keep going? So I counted from eleven on up to twenty.

Now, William can count from one to twenty in English, and he can count from one to ten in Spanish. But I've never heard him even attempt to count from eleven to twenty in Spanish.

Nonetheless, as I counted en espanol, his little brow furrowed a bit over the air chamber. He pulled it down as I reached twenty and gave me a significant look. Loftily, he said....

"That's not how it goes, Mommy."

When W throws a tantrum, try counting in spanish, that ought to divert his attention.
