Words are Pretty Keen

My six year old is prone to using archaic slang, due largely to his love of the retro cartoon channel Boomerang. One day in the Target checkout line, he told me that something was "nifty" and "swell", prompting the lady in front of us to turn around and ask if my son was Beaver Cleaver. Last week, he looked at my husband while eating dinner and said, "So, whatcha doin', Pa?" Note: my son's name is not Laura Ingalls Wilder and we do not live in the country.

Today, my mother came over to take the kids to lunch. Attempting to get their 5 and 6 year old butts moving, she called to G, asking if he was coming.

My kindergartener's response to his grandmother? "Coming, sweetheart!"
