So L. is at that age that his mother bought him some preschool activity books, and today he and I were doing a page from one of them.  As part of the activity, we were writing out the word ‘cat,’ and everything was going as expected until we finished drawing the ‘T.’

“Now draw an ‘O,'” L. insisted with a grin.

Sensing something was up, I looked at him with mock-sternness and reminded him that there was no ‘O’ in ‘cat.’

“‘O’ makes it a bug!” he giggled.

Now I knew he was up to something, but since I didn’t see where this was going, I gave in and asked him how.

“‘O’ makes it a ‘cat-o-pillar!” he told me.
