Word Play

There’s a small playing area in the waiting room of Boo’s social skills group and among the toys scattered about is a magnetic board with plastic letters.

The other week, Boo went over to the board and started playing with the letters .

I didn’t think too much of this, and then after about 2 or 3 minutes (I swear, it was a very, very short amount of time) he called me over. “Mommy, look at what I wrote,” he said, pointing to the board.

(For the record, I don’t think the kids are unkind in the group. I think he was merely reiterating the rules of the group.) But wait – he wasn’t done. He tossed “PleasE bE Kind” to the floor and within a minute or two (I swear, a minute or two) produced this:

Followed immediately by this:

I was – and still am – at a loss for words.

Thanks for sharing this post!
