This morning, I gave Reid and Will their cereal bowls but hadn’t yet given them spoons.
“Uh-oh! What are you missing?” Eric asked them.
“The C and the I!” They both replied immediately in unison.
“What?” Eric asked, looking confused. “A see and an eye?”
“The C and the I,” they repeated.
“Look,” I said, pointing at the floor in the living room behind us.
“Oh,” he said. “I was going for ‘spoon,’ but that’s true too.”
