Life with K2

K2, as I call Kalyan Mohan Shaffer, is an original thinker as all children are. Some examples:

K2, while getting ready for playschool: I want to be like the old pwesident of Amewica.
Me: Who's the old president of Amewi..sorry, America?
K2: Obana (sic).
Father: The present president is older than the old president.
K2: Oh, Donald Twump is older?
....the things four-year-olds know!

K2: "Spell 'thousand', Deepamma."
Me: "T-H-O-U-S-A...."
K2: "No! You are WONG! Thouzend...you have to spell it with 'z' and 'e'. You don't know ANYTHING!"
Me (humbly): "Yes...I am afraid so..."

K2: "You are WONG. You are saying 'night'. There is a 'k' there, so you should say 'kanight' not 'night', Deepamma!"
Me: "OK, have it your way..."
K2: "No, it's not MY way, it's the WIGHT way!"
