Caden-4yr.  He is just SO cute.

Around our house, there is an unusual phrase.  It’s uttered FREQUENTLY, and always by Caden-4yr, in his odd little Austrian accent.   

This phrase is ’Ho and Tell.’

Lovely, huh? 

Ho and Tell actually has TWO meanings, adding to the frequency of times it comes up conversationally.  It is SO hard not to break into giggles on these occasions. 

First meaning:  hotel.   “When will be at the Ho and Tell? I yike dis Ho and Tell. It is a yittle bit nice of a Ho and Tell. I yuv it.” 

Second meaning for Ho and Tell: ‘Show and Tell.’  Every Friday morning Caden-4yr is preoccupied with what his Ho and Tell will be, and then he rehearses what he will say when it is his turn.  He prefers to rehearse privately, but if he has to he will do it quietly in the car.  Then if Mike asks him what he’s saying, he will indignantly say, “I am talking to mySELF. DAD.”

Sometimes I think it will be a little sad when the day comes when Caden-4yr sounds like just any other West Texan kid.  He’s endearing and entertaining every time he speaks. 

Happy Ho and Tell Day, y’all. 

Don’t worry about the google searches.  I gave up trying to prevent the weirdos after this post – it attracts quite the wrong kind of crowd, daily.

AH google searches. When your blog has diaper in the title and you do a “sex challenge” you attract the MAJOR weirdos.
