Perhaps you have drilled your child's spelling words one time too many when he has the following conversation with his sister on the way to school.
Sydney to Eli - "Hey can you spell count?"
Eli to Sydney - "YOU spell it!"
End of spelling.....except count wasn't one of his words....she was just messing with him. Needless to say we skipped the spelling portion of tonight's homework, it's time for a night off.
