Thank You Mandr!

Have you ever received a great gift, but it just wasn't something you needed at the time? My sweet friend got me a package of foam letters at one of my baby showers for JK to use in the bathtub. He wasn't even born yet, but it was a perfect gift for when he got a little older. Bathtub toys are a thing of the past. His floaty boats and ducks just don't hold his intellect anymore. This week he screams if he doesn't get his "didders" (letters).

He's doing pretty good if I say so myself. He wrote his first thank you note the other night.



There was only one A in the package, so even though it says "Mandr", it's supposed to be your full name. You know who you are. :-)

I like how he already knows how to use abbreviations...I'm more used to Thx as text speak, but TU works too :)

Way to go, JK! Invented spelling is an early step in a long literacy journey! :)

I got Rachel the same set and have already added an additional one to her Christmas list...I won't be able to stand not spelling some words correctly! Why don't they (and all alphabet toys, for that matter) come with additional vowels at least?

That bathroom looks fabulous. Can I get the name of your tile guy?

(PS. The baby looks mighty cute, too!)

Jen K, the towel was an accident. We don't have a bath mat yet, so the towel is an effort to keep him from slip-slidin' away...

Kristen, I'll email you the number of the tile guy. He does beautiful work. AND he's uber-HOT. Nice to watch. Heehee!
