Me: Teddy, why did you not write that 'e' at the end?
Teddy: Because it's silent.

At Teddy's and my Irish dance class, one of the warm-up exercises is called "point-up-point." (You point your toe, bend your knee until your toe is at your opposite hip, then point again, while hopping on the other foot, in time to the music.) Lucia has been quite interested in everything that goes on at dance class, loving to watch the dancers and listen to the music. This week, however, she tried dancing herself. The funny part was, she can't actually do the dance, since, at the age of one, she's just mastered standing up. So her hands were on the floor, and her right leg (and then later, her left leg) was flailing away in a not-too-bad attempt at point-up-point with the rest of the class.
