Stinkerbelle: Passsssss-ghetti.
AoM: *head down on desk*
Stinkerbelle: Why is mom laughing?

    She has plenty of time to get words pronounced correctly.

    I remember 2nd Grade and a boy giving an oral report in front of the class. He mispronounced spaghetti and everybody giggled except the student teacher. She told him to continue in a "No Nonsense" tone of voice.
    Then he said it wrong again. This time we knew better than to laugh.

    After everybody had done their speeches, the student teacher stood up in front of us and mentioned a mistake for every one of us who had talked or the way we were moving. She did not mention ~pasketsi~ at all about that boy, but did say something different.
    What I did wrong was shuffle my feet and make an annoying noise the whole time I was reading from my paper.

    Lesson learned by me? some things you should overlook for sake of getting along.

    Sounds like that student teacher was on the ball. She helped keep a kid from being embarrassed and taught a valuable lesson of that whole "without sin/cast the first stone."
