The Letter F

So, I had a really fun Friday post in the works. Don't you just love when life changes it up on you? I promise... we started out great.

It has been all about letters at the May house recently. While I embrace learning on all levels, playing the letter game every hour of every day gets a bit old. All day, over and over I hear:" Truck starts with T... " yep, your right. Every letter. Several times over. By the end of the day I joined in with "What does Please Be Quiet start with?" Ha... At least I had a giggle.

Today was all about the letter F. 

F is for Friday! We love Fridays because it means we are just several hours away from weekend fun or as the kids think of it as time with the fun parent named Daddy. Lucy loves weekends.

Ok. You caught me. She has no concept of weekends. She's just too stinkin' cute to leave out.

F is also for Firetruck. Today our awesome Mom's group spent playgroup at the fanciest of fire stations. Gabriel went in full fireman attire and had so much fun. I love this group and this was such a great day to be outside. Man, those firemen sure did well handling about 15 kids under the age of 4... FANTASTIC  even.

And the afternoon? Yep, there were letters there too. As the bell for end of school rang and literally EVERY student and parent filled the great hall,  Gabriel turned to me with a funny expression and "frowed up" all over the floor. Lucy in a moment of sibling camaraderie timed a perfect diaper explosion that shot straight up her back after 3 days of holding it in (hello, life on solids!) 

Mmm hmm. You guessed it. Eff.

I think everyone will remember me and my germy kid for a loooooong time to come. Talk about leavin your mark on the school. Thanks to the school nurse, we are sporting yet another elementary school shirt. We do have quite the collection going. Go eagles, sorry for the vom.

Wow. Kids are FUN.

Happy Handwashing-- enjoy your weekend!

Hah! The part about the poop explosion made me LOL! Aren't those just the best?! Definitely not my favorite thing ever. Also, I love your idea of having a letter of the day! So fun!!
