IT GETS WORSE: HE JUST

IT GETS WORSE: HE JUST ASKED TO MAKE HIM SOME "MACIZZLE AND CHIZZLE" FOR LUNCH

Small Fellow is officially three-and-a-half-going-on-getting-evicted. Like some tween girl IM addict, he's started speaking almost entirely in shorthand. He wants to go the park so he can run around in "the sprink" at "the play." But first, for breakfast, he wants a "bage." Etc., etc.

This is one of those parenting Catch-22s. The experts say, and they're right, that if we fixate on correcting him, or toss him in a shed whenever he does this, he'll just do it more. On the other hand, if we ignore it, well, we'll have to start with the heroin.
