“I’d like to talk to you about your child…”

Yesterday I picked seven-year-old TD up from summer camp and was greeted by a counselor who gave me the following report…

Um, I’d like to talk to you about TD today. We had to talk to her because apparently she and a friend were spelling out bad words in the pool. I think it was the B word, the “F word,” the “S word, ” and the “H word.”

To which I felt the urge to query

Did she at least spell them correctly?

Those -tch and -ck words can be tricky, after all! If she got those right, she must be retaining something from first grade over the summer!

Way to make your mama proud, TD!
