It's interesting trying to explain to your child why we don't call an African American friend, "That little brown boy." The same thing happened when Sidge called a friend of his "a little fat." Why is saying that not acceptable? I tried to explain it to him, and in the course of my diatribe, I said to him, "Why would you call him fat?" Sidge responded: "Well, his belly is a little bubbly, Mom."
I asked Sidge how his puzzle was coming along, and he said, "I'm doing a brilliant job on this puzzle."
While trying to teach Sidge how to draw a check mark, he said, "Is it like a 7 but with a bump and upside down and sort of to the sideways?"
