A couple of weeks ago, one of my younger sisters reminded me of something really funny that Mason did when he was about 3 years old. Let me preface the story by saying that Mason's absolute favorite food is McDonalds french fries.
While teaching the kids to recognize their alphabet, we would write every letter, one by one, on a piece of paper and quiz them each time we wrote one down. We would write them in random order and they would tell us what letter it was. They were really good at it with one exception...Every time we wrote the letter "M", we would ask "what is this?" and Mason would gleefully shout out "fries!" (That's when you know that you eat there way too much,)
It took a while, but he knows now that it really is just a letter on a piece of paper. He still loves the fries though!
