Q watched an entire cartoon sitting in this position, giving the sleeping bub a blow by blow account of what was happening.
Quiet mornings are made for moments like these.
We’ve been doing very well with our letter of the the week series. I think this is due to several reasons: one, it’s still a novelty and thus quite fun to stick stuff whilst singing the ABCs. Two, it is great mummy-Q time and my “quality time” loving son generally relishes doing stuff one-on-one with me, a rarity these days since my very pregnant form means I get tired easily. Thirdly, the words we picked we’re from his vocabulary (and I’ve tried to pick things he favours) and so not daunting to try and categorize things by alphabet.
I went with the same formula for letter E that began with a trip to the zoo to see the elephants (gotta love the elephant show at the zoo!) and we made a pit stop at a store there that I knew sold Elmo crocs. We didn’t buy one but Q has a great time shouting “E for Elmo” at each pair. There weren’t many people at the store so I let it slide.
In any case, it was just as well I opted to do this early in the week cos little Evan (also an E) came to join our family!
E is for Evan!
