Short Stack knows the alphabet and is learning to write it. One evening (this almost qualifies as a tantrum) she insisted that I tell her how to write the word "POOP."

It was not worth fighting.

I told her (see picture).

"Another 'a'?" she said in disbelief.

"Yes, honey, you want me to tell you how to spell 'poop,' don't you?"

I am a bad mommy.

(By the way, she wrote it boustrophedon -- the way early literate cultures did -- as the ox turns the plough. Left to right, then right to left, then left to right again.)
