As she gets in touch with her sass, Stella is using her new-found ability of spelling. Instead of just yelling or telling us “no,” she’s spelling her way through it. It’s not enough to say “no,” it must be spelled out. Every time. And yes, I know that’s not a big deal – hell, Felix can spell no. But lights and shoes must be “O – F – F.” If you ask her if she knows something, often she’ll toss her head and respond that yes she knows XYZ and furthermore she knows that know starts with a K.
What in the world are we going to do when she’s a teenager? I guess I’ll teach her to spell G R O U N D E D.
