Wednesdaily with Letters

We have magnetic letters on the fridge - just enough to spell Guppy's name, and we added a handful more last week to spice things up. She's loved these letters from day one, but mostly to put them in things, rearrange them, and stack them on the cat. Yesterday, I asked her where the A was, and she picked it off the fridge.  "Aaaaaay!"  A fluke, I figured. There aren't that many letters in her name.  "Where's the L?"  She picked it out like a pro.  "Aaaaaaahl!"

Today, 25 letters on the fridge (we don't have an R, these are second-hand letters), and it is the Best Thing Ever! She'll identify the few she knows, if I ask her (U is her favorite: 'Eeeeeew!'), but mostly she wants to put them in her bucket or her velcro bag. She also found the zipper on the cover of the dog mat that she likes to play on, and has decided it is one GIGANTIC purse.  Sometimes, she'll hold one out and ask me to name it for her.  I think it confuses her that Q is 'Eeeeeew', too.

Not sure what the plan is for today yet. Keep the fire going. Put folded laundry away. Maybe some art? I'm debating a Christmas tree...

We have fridge magnet letters, too. My older cub knows the letter A fine, but also likes to pretend it's a rocket!

The younger cub is still at the "these are fun to chew on" stage. He recognizes that the letters will stick to the fridge, but hasn't figured out how to place them up there so they stay yet.

We plan to take the coloring books from the Fantastrix kickstarter with us when visiting family for Christmas! I think grownups and little kids will get a kick out of them, and we can maybe get some quiet time amid all the new toys.

'Eeeeeew' and 'Eeeeeew' would get confusing! :)

Sandy and I have yet to take down the branch of some pine/fir/Christmas type tree that we have in the kitchen. We took down the wreath on the door a couple months ago, interestingly enough it had started smelling like tree again.

My favorite refrigerator magic, when my girl was little, was pictures of friends and family who were rarely seen. She always recognized them next time, which made many things more fun.

Oh, what a wonderful idea! So much of her family is so far away, this would be a really nice way to include them.

And when visits are short, having quick recognition helps to allow for more bonding and fun time.
