When An K E (Aunt Katie) was here, Kairi discovered the magnetic ABC's on the fridge. She still claims that every one of them is either a 2 or a T, but at least we're talking about them on a more regular basis.
Wednesday night while I was cooking supper, Kairi was playing with the magnets. She'd grab one, call it either 2 or T and I'd correct her. She'd say the right name, put it back, and grab another one for the cycle to repeat. Here's where the conversation got interesting:
Kairi: (holding a U) 2 Mommy, 2!
Mommy: No, Kairi, that's a U.
Kairi: No, Mommy. 2!
Mommy: No, baby, it's a U.
Kairi: No, T. Isa T.
Mommy: Kairi, it's U.
Kairi: Yaright. Ist MEEEEEE!!!!!!!
Mommy: NO baby no! (While trying to not laugh.) It's the LETTER U.
Kairi: Ist meeeeee! Meeeee! Meeeee!
At this point you would hear Meeeeeeee repeating over and over and over and over and over and over again as she walked through the house clutching her U.
But the story doesn't end there. Saturday we're going over our alphabet again together. I say the letter. She repeats it. There's a few letters she struggles with being able to say, but she generally tries them all. On this particular occasion, it went like this:
A A B B C C .... R R S S T T U MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
I cracked up laughing, and she walked off very proud of herself, grinning from ear to ear.
I'll be back later today for other stories. But for now, Baby Dash will be here at 8:00am, and I need to shower before he gets here.
