Oh what fun it is to teach a 5 year old the ins and outs of sarcasm.  NOT. 

"Christopher, is your bed made?" 

"n – o.  That spells no."

"Do you think maybe it’s rude to spell answers at your mommy?"

"y-e-s.  Daddy says my mouth is soooo smarth these days! That’s because I can spell!"

"Christopher, daddy doesn’t mean your mouth is intelligent.  He means that you’re being rude."

"Then why did he say it was smart?"

"It’s called sarcasm."

"What’s scarcasim?"

"Not scarcasim.  Sarcasm.  It’s when you say something thinking you are being funny, but you’re really making fun of the person you are talking about."

"Daddy is making fun of me?"  (confused look here)

"No, but when daddy says you have a smart mouth it means that you sound smart (because you are spelling) but you’re really being rude."

"Oh.  Well, that’s just s-i-l-l-y."

"I suppose to you it is.  We’ll have this conversation again later I’m sure.  Give me a hug."

    I am only giggling because mine has not made it to the sarcasm stage yet. LOL Our NOah will be 2 on the 19th of this month.

    What an adorable story. Thanks for sharing.

    God's Blessings,
