Kate hands me a picture she has drawn. It is of a building. At the top, a sign says, “Toes.”
Kate: I’m not done with Santa’s workshop yet.
Me: Okay. You can finish it after school today.
Kate: What does it say? (She points to the sign.)
Me: It says, “Toes”.
Kate’s little shoulders slump: Oh.
Me: What’s it supposed to say?

Kid spelling is the best!
Oh, man, that’s cute. My daughter has a sign on her door that says, “Wlcom to my hows. Com in!” Makes me smile every time. (And she has lots of toes in that room, too, by the way.)
I think that’s the correct ancient Gaelic spelling of the word. So there’s that.
Excellent. We’ll teach Flora Italian, Kate Gaelic (since she’s started) and M… Pittsburgese.
I personally would love a workshop of toes.
