No - I didn't misspell LOVE... haha -
This past fall, (November to be exact) my five year old, Clayton, came into my room and wanted to share a funny story from school. He said that his teacher kept writing the word "Nov" on the board, and wasn't that just so funny?
I explained to him that "Nov" really was a shortened version of November, the month we were in. He rolled his eyes and sighed...
Here is the rest of the conversation:
Clayton: I know that Nov means November, mom. But just say it out loud, here, repeat after me... Nooooovvvvvv.
Me: Okay, baby. Nooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvv... (I chuckle) - that does sound kind of funny.
Clayton: Okay, so let's use it in a sentence. You first.
(I roll my eyes here.. really kid?)
Me: Okaaaaaaaaaaay... Today is the 4th of Noooovvvvvvvvember... (I smile and give him the 'see its a shortened version of the name of the month we're in.')
(Now he rolls his eyes and huffs again - obviously at my lack of creativity with this brilliant new word.)
Clayton: Okay, mom. My turn. How about... "I Nooooovvvvv You!" (He throws his hands in the air in a TADAAAAAAAAAAAAAA stance...)
And I - I laugh until my sides hurt. Not only is my son brilliant... but I sure do NOV my life!!
