Silent E

We were playing the game Catch Phrase and my six-year-old got the phrase "test-tube baby". He never wants any help from anyone and thinks he's smarter than me. His eyes lit up and he said, "Ok the first and last words are 'test' and 'baby' and the middle word is something that you find in the bathroom . . . but it has a silent E on the end of it."

We were all confused, until my nephew slowly questions, "Is it the tub?"

Cameron beamed. "YOU GOT IT!! Test tub baby!"

Silent E at the age of 6?!? He is right to act like he is smarter than me.

  1. Hahah That is so hilarious. He is a character :) And so funny that his phrase was "test tube baby." How in the world do you explain THAT to a kid!?
