Hug the Prince

Bennett has spent the better part of this day reading, "The Prince and the Pauper". We were reading together in my room when he decided to inform me of an interesting point in his book.

"Mom, did you know that the King in this book has a brother who's name is Hug?"

"Really?! That's an odd name."

"Ya. That's what I thought. Hug the Prince. Ha! Look, they spell it H-U-G-H."

Smiling and shaking my head...then moving on to a case of the giggles, "Honey, you pronounce that 'hew'."

"Oh. I thought that would be a strange name for a parent to give a kid. So then I started calling him 'hug-huh' through-out the rest of the book."

O, the perils of combining the English language and a 9 year old boy.
