My trip to the supermarket with two children in tow was more stressful than usual this week, mainly as we decided to try using the handheld scanner for the first time as we walked around to try to save time. My daughter will be 8 next week and my son is 4½ and was not speaking much this time last year. He is catching up with his peers now very quickly, particularly thanks to speech therapy and starting school in September.

He has finally started singing nursery rhymes too, which we thought we had bypassed, so it’s wonderful that he is now doing it, and he’s quite tuneful. But on Monday, Monster had learnt a new song: the Alphabet Song which he sang continuously at top volume.

So when I spotted this the next day on Failblog, it seemed so appropriate.


About r2ruth

I haven’t written a diary since I was 9 or 10 and a babysitter told me off for writing it after she had turned the lights off. I have blue eyes. I have a 100-year-old grandmother. I enjoy embroidery and reading in my spare time, if spare time exists. I am the descendant of a Persian princess from the 16th Century who married one of my ancestors who was an English adventurer. Spring is my favourite time of year but autumn inspires me because of the rich palette of colours which appear on the trees. I have two children, one of each flavour, and a Peter Pan of a husband who is like a third child sometimes. I’m a ‘glass is half full’ kind of person. My favourite colour is blue: the colour of the background in Microsoft Word. I enjoy a good joke, was brought up on puns and like to see the lighter side of life. I am a freelance proofreader.

One Response to Alphabet

    That’s hilarious! Such a random alphabet, and not just one mistake either. It reminds me of going into a shop a few years ago and buying a couple of mugs with the alphabet on. The sales assistant said: ‘Ooh, you could see how many words you could make while you have a cuppa!’ That would be the longest tea break in history…
