Another adventure in parenting
Yesterday i spread a blanket on the floor for Riv so we could have some fun with blocks. He chewed on the blocks and threw them at the dogs while i tried to turn our play time into some learning time.
I'd hold up a letter block and tell him what the letter was and a word that started with that letter.
"B is for Baby!"
"E is for Egg!"
Then i got to N and for some reason the first word that popped in my head was Negro.
So there i sat, holding up a wood block with a green N and said "N is for Negro."
River cracked up!
A couple of hours later i noticed James was playing the same game.
He held up a block with an F on it, paused, and said "F is for Funky Fresh."
So just our luck someone is gonna ask Riv his name and he's going to say "Funky Fresh Negro."
There is a reason why James and I have never been invited as guest stars on Sesame Street!
