The Silly Family

"Mama," my ten-year-old son said.  "Did you know we're the silly family?"

I raised my eyebrows.  "I suppose we are rather silly."

"No," he said.  "We're really the silly family."

Apparently I was missing something.  "What do you mean?"

"If you spell our name backwards, it's 'Sille.'  Silly!"

I'd never noticed.  I guess that explains a few things!

    1. I'll have to tell him. He'll get a chuckle out of it.

  14. Hehe! It's better to be a sille/silly family than a boring one.

    Kids are observant. I remember I was the one who figured out my first name and my last name are the same letters just moved around in a different order (and having an additional "e" lying around). My parents were surprised because they hadn't noticed.

  15. Trust a kidling to spot it!

    There are far worse things than being a Sill(e) family; sounds more than a bit enticing actually.
