Childish sentiments

In the hallway I could hear Hazel saying in a soft, gentle voice: “Walk up. Walk up. Walk up. That’s right.” I peeked around the corner to see what toy she was treating with so much solicitude. It was a small, rubbery skeleton that she was coaching to walk up the wall. She held it up and said, “It’s my baby.”

Henry was mad at me for making him take something upstairs. A minute later, with pen and paper in hand, he asked me, “How do you spell ‘Mom?'”

Not without suspicion, I answered, “M-O-M.”

“How do you spell ‘Stupid?'”
