Good Question

Today after school, Jonah asked, "Mom, why do people seethe?"

I figured I could not have possibly heard him correctly. Since when do first graders have a vocabulary that includes the word "seethe?" Could he have meant something else?

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"You know," he said, "when people are so mad that they are madder than mad and their face turns all red."

I guess first graders do have a vocabulary that includes the word "seethe." At least my first grader does.

WOW, your first grader just taught me a new word! Smart boy!
