Ben is finishing up his homework this morning before school. In answering a question on the assignment, he needs to write the word 'whatever'.
He asked me how to spell it.
So I asked him, "how do you spell 'what'"? He wrote that down.
And then I said, "how do you spell 'ever'"?
"But Mom," he said, " then that will say 'whate-ver'! (wait-ver)
