It is disconcerting when your 21-month-old child starts asking for her precious love object, Duck, by his SPELLING. "Deeyooseekay? Deeyooseekay?" Are you kidding me? I know she can't spell, and I won't even get sidetracked by discussing the potential genius in this. Really, my focus is the inconvenience. Henceforth, he shall be known as "Pato." Next month: "Canard."
