What does that spell?

When Ken and I want to discuss something that we don’t want Reid to know about, we spell some on the words. At first, it threw Ken off when I all of a sudden spelled a word in the middle of a sentence but now he uses the tactic, too. Reid has recently started asking what it is that we’re spelling as we’re saying the letters. I tell her that when she learns to read, she will know what we’re spelling. I don’t know if she’ll decide that we should teach her to read or if she takes the comment as a way of knowing how long it will be before she will understand us. I’m in no hurry since we’ll have to develop some other secret communication method once Reid can spell.

  1. Ha.
    We did the same. And the first word the girls figured out was I-C-E-C-R-E-A-M.
