The other day Elijah said to me, "Mommy, I just scrabbled Callan!"
"You what?" (I looked at him quizzically.)
"I scrabbled Callan!"
Okay, I'm confused...
I must have looked very bewildered as Elijah said with exasperation, "Mommy, I scrabbled Callan. You know, I hit her!"
Then it dawned on me that he was trying to say "I clobbered Callan." He had watched The Christmas Story this past weekend and heard that word on the movie.
Needless to say, I just couldn't punish the little chap due to his blatant honesty and the hilarity of "scrabbling" his sister.
By the way, she was not even phased by being "scrabbled."
