My daughter has been obsessed with her Baby Einstein Alphabooks lately.
Every night before she goes to bed she insists on spelling our names with these books. There is a separate book with 3 words and pictures representing each letter of the alphabet. She has to read every word in each of the books that spells our names.
Of course, most of our names have repeating letters– Mommy, Daddy, Lily, Rose and Lumpy. When she spells Mommy with the books, she reads the “M” book three times. She reads it twice in a row when she gets to the middle. She does the same thing Daddy and we get to hear the “D” book read three times.
It’s great that she wants to spell, but it’s extremely time consuming to hear all of the books multiple times. Here’s how you spell Mommy, in case you were wondering: Milk, Monkey, Moon, Octopus, Owl, Orange, Milk, Monkey, Moon, Milk, Monkey, Moon, Yellow, Yo-Yo, Yogurt. I always thought it was just M-O-M-M-Y, but I was apparently wrong.
