Each time the children do or say something that would be perfect to share for a Silly Monkey Story, I make a note of it in my Windows phone. Usually just a short note, 2 or 3 words long, would suffice. Once in awhile, I will look at the note and fail to recall which child the story was actually about. This happened to me when I sat down to write this post.
My note was about mispronouncing the word "Popsicle" with "possible". It was very clear that it was not our 9 year old son who said this, but I could not recall which of our 6 year old twins did. I remember the conversation was about doing a craft using Popsicle sticks.
To help me figure out which twin it actually was, my husband called each one downstairs and asked the question: "Which do you like better . . . ice cream sandwiches or Popsicles?"
Well, it turned out that our daughter was the one that pronounced the word as "possible." Her twin brother pronounces it as "possicles", so it couldn't have been him.
