"What letter are you studying this week at school, Rooster?" I asked.
"B!" she told me.
"Oh? What words start with the letter B?"
"I know," shouted The Mayor. "Baby!"
"That's right!" I beamed.
"Balloon!" yelled Rooster.
"Ball, bat bottle, bag...!!!" cried The Rooster
"Book, blue, bib, bone...!!!" added The Mayor
[Oh, the proud!]
K, who had been listening from the other room, came to join us.
"What about THIS?" he said, turning and pointing at his rear end with both pointer fingers.

I just know her teacher will put me in time out when I pick her up today...
