What You Say... and What They Hear

Christopher loves his calendar and the idea of being organized. He was sitting beside me, writing in his activities...

"Fffff", he says, and then writes "F".
"Eeee" he continues, and writes "e".
"P" he sounds out a few times, and then writes "P".

"Look, Mama" he says. "Is that right?"
"FeP", I say, somewhat puzzled.
"Yep - 'cause I have FEP-ball tomorrow. Right?"

And where, in the whole scheme of things, did he miss the connection between his favorite sport and the FOOT?
