Father's Day

My going-on-four-year-old made me a card at preschool. The teacher asked him some fill-in-the-blank questions, and wrote down his answers, which I present herewith. The questions are in italics, and his answers in normal type.

My Daddy's name is Daddy.

He is I don't know years old.

He has green eyes and black hair. [Brown hair, really. Mostly brown, these days.--ed.]

He likes to eat dinner, breakfast. That's what he likes.

He likes to watch actually, commercials on TV. [I do? --ed.]

When he goes to work, he works at work.

I love my Daddy because I do.

It's good to be Dad.

Your going on four year old can spell out "actually?" He uses the word "actually?"

Smart kid!

He can't spell it out, as he can't spell; his version of the Alphabet Song goes "A B C D L M N O P Q R S Y and Z". His teacher wrote down his answers for him. But it's certainly a word he uses.
