At the doctor's waiting room a man was sitting opposite a mother and her little daughter.
He asks the little girl, "Hi there, and how old are you?"
The little girl showed him 4 fingers to indicate she is 4 years old.
The man says, "That is nice, but can't you talk?"
The little girl replies, "Yes I can, but can't you count?"
Kathryn's 5-year-old developed a strong interest in spelling once she learned to spell STOP. After that, she tried to figure out her own words. From the back seat of the car she'd ask, "Mom, what does FGRPL spell?"
"Nothing," Kathryn said.
Sitting at breakfast she'd suddenly ask, "Mom, what does DOEB spell?"
"Nothing," Kathryn answered.
This went on for several weeks. Then one afternoon as they sat coloring in her room she asked, "Mom, what does LMDZ spell?"
Kathryn smiled at her and said, "Nothing, sweetheart."
The 5-year-old carefully set down her crayon, sighed and said, "Boy, there sure are a lot of ways to spell 'nothing'!"
