how do you spell...

The little man is very good at spelling. His memory is really amazing because once he's read a word and pronounced it right chances are he can spell it for you without difficulty. I make it a point to test his vocabulary by letting him ask what a certain word means, then make him read the word to tuck away for future use. The other day we were practicing spelling and he was really doing good spelling words like warning and parking without assistance. Until I asked how to spell banana. He tried several times but the poor thing could not do it. He refused my help either. He cried but I told him he will get it next time which he did the next day after we practiced on it. I thought it was funny how he labored over a simple word and I actually laughed when I told the husband about what happened. That was, when we were alone because I don't want my little boy to think I was making fun of him. Quite the opposite, in fact. I am proud of him. He is such a smart kid even if he does test my patience sometimes. I was told though that boys are a handful and he sure is.
