and another milestone

Sometimes, when my children master some new skill, or start on some new phase, I find it hard to supply the unqualified rejoicing that such an occasion demands from other parents. Or perhaps the parents of other kids. What the Sniglet has done is, he’s written his first spontaneous word – that is, he didn’t copy something we’d written for him, he generated it without any model, purely from memory. This is good news! Unfortunately, the word he’s chosen for this first step on the path to literacy is:

Poop.

Oh well, at least it’s a palindrome.
