So Munchkin has been getting 5 M&Ms whenever he takes his antibiotic. (I know, tsk tsk tsk. But honestly I have tasted the stuff and I wouldn’t take it unless you promised me a gift certificate to Bliss Spa every time, so I figure in this economy we’re getting off good with 5 M&Ms.)
Anyhoo, he gets his five M&Ms the other night and takes them over to his little special place on the ottoman to lay them all out and go through the ritual of counting them and grouping them by color (he IS my child) and deciding which one he should eat first when he says, “Mom, why deez M-uh-Ms don’t have Ms on ’em?” I go over and look and ask what he means because they all have Ms on them. He says, “No Mom. Doze are EEEEs.”
So I turned them all 45 degrees to tranform the Es into Ms. He gets a look in his face as if he’s just grasped the intricacies of String Theory . “Wow, Mom. How did you do dat?”
I create fun and colorful flashcards for children. When you do that long enough, you begin to see the world as a series of flashcards. Sometimes they are funny. Sometimes they are warm and fuzzy. Sometimes they are mildly innappropriate. Come see the snark at The Flashcard Zoo Blog.
