Oh good grief, how do you explain to a 5 year old why sugar says "sh" and doesn't have an H or why shoe has the "oo" sound, but only one o and a silent e?  really, I'd like to know how!

Write GHOTI on a piece of paper and ask her what word it is. It is pronounced "fish". GH as in Tough; O as in Women; TI as in Nation. English is inexplanable.
