The OM in Mom

Morgane was utterly thrilled to learn to write “mom” today…she is working on learning her letters and recognizing them. She gets in bed and reads with me at night and loves picking out the letters she knows from books. Today I showed her mom, because it’s easy, and you should have seen her face light up when she looked at it and said, “THAT’S your name?!” M-O-M. Wow, what a cheap thrill. Then I started looking at it more closely as she meticulously wrote out the 3 letters over and over, and I saw the OM in mom! An interesting reminder that often we don’t see all that’s in front of us, even if we’ve been looking at it for awhile. So I got my cheap thrill too. Hope you get some cheap thrills of your own this weekend.
