Candy Canes

Well yesterday I had to run an errand and took the kids with me. S was lucky and the people working at the place gave him a candy cane, which made him really happy. He was nice enough to wait until we got home to open it, like I asked, so we wouldn't have a mess in the car. He started chomping away. To my surprise when he got down to just the hook, and looked at me and said "U" and the sound it makes. S, knows his letters and the sounds they make fairly well, but it surprised me he was able to see it in a non-traditional way. After he said "U", he then turned the candy cane and said "C" and the sound it makes. It made me happy that he has an imagination and can find ways to use what he knows in your not so typical way.

E used to do that a lot. Especially with the letter J (back when J & K were his favorite letters) he used to see J's everywhere, like in the little hooks that hold mugs...

Also, I love your comments on my blog, but did you know you are posting comments under the wrong posts? It doesn't really bother me, but I just thought you might want to know.
