Tub Art

We got a set of foam letters that stick to the wall of the tub. They were for Daisy, but they are a big hit with all the kids, especially the ones who can spell and read. There is a limit to what you can spell since there is only one of each letter, but the girls can be very creative when they need to be.

For instance I came in to find that Robyn had spelled Telaskop (telescope). Not too shabby considering she is just beginning to read. Plus, kids find the most realistic spelling; too bad English words can't follow the rules more often.

I told Robyn it was time to get out and she begged to spell one more word. I watched as she put up R-O-C-H-I...

"What are you trying to spell?" I asked.

"Raw Chicken." Naturally.

I told her it was two words and chicken couldn't be done because of the two 'c's, but we did the best we could.

And then we left it in the tub for Dad to find, because everyone should have the chance to think about raw chicken when they are in the shower.

That feels almost akin to my sister writing "I love you" in the shower to her husband with hair on the wall...shocking and a little gross but so funny. I would laugh through my whole shower thinking about raw chicken (and probably a shudder or two.)
PS I love your pants...does he take special orders or is that too personal?
And I love how you hardly ever have pictures of yourself so suddenly there is one and you have a baby!! although I'm sure it surely doesn't feel "all of the sudden" to you. You are one of those really cute pregnant women.
Raw chicken...that's funny.

That is hilarious! We have those same letters and I love them too. It helped Mylie learn the letters.

That is too good! It made me laugh so hard- I even had to read it to Dave.
