Today was a long day. I took my kids swimming for a few hours and when we finally got back home, we were all very tired. The kids wanted to know if they could watch a movie. I was thinking, well, I have a lot to do, such as packing up and cleaning this and that, and getting dinner ready. A movie would keep them quiet and out of my way, so I can get done faster. So I said, *sigh, "I reckon."
Aaron said, "what does that mean Mommy?" I answered that it means yes. Aaron, says, "Is it Spanish for yes?"
Isn't that cute?
Around here reckon means yes, or reckon not, means no. It's a Country thing, like saying "ya'll". But it isn't Spanish.
I explained that si is Spanish for yes, and sometimes I will say "I guess so" to mean yes as well.
English is so hard to learn isn't it?
