Letters--we get letters--we get sacks and sacks of letttterrrrs!!
Owen is my little letter man. Even before he was two, he knew O, W, E and N, and was starting to recognize a few others. Then Grandma W. gave him the most obnoxious birthday present ever--a Leapfrog phonics sounds bus, and he proceeded to teach himself the rest of the alphabet. So now when I hear "A says ay, and A says ah, touch the letter, hear the sound, A says ay and ah!" I just want to find a brick wall whereupon I can throw that mightily annoying bus.
Recently, a very kind friend let us borrow an alphabet floor puzzle. Junior got into the set while I was feeding Helen, and lo and behold we lost a piece--one of those tiny round holes that goes in the number 8. I have looked everywhere for the past two weeks. Now I can start looking for a replacement set. I guess it is my own fault.
Owen is now showing an interest in numbers. (Don't tell Grandma W!)
