Liam's ABCs

After a four-month blogging hiatus, I've kind of been feeling like I needed to have some big, important post to make in order to get started again.  I never meant to stop blogging; it kind of just got lost in the shuffle of full-time work, grad classes, four kids, my Girl Scout troop, etc.  Oh, and also, we moved to a new house (also at camp) last month.  You know--because we have lots of free time and were needing some life changes.  Ahem.

Then, last night, I was doing some flashcards with Liam--at his request, not because I'm a crazy lady that thinks my 3-year-old needs to be reading or anything.  :)  His answers for the cards cracked me up so much that I couldn't stop laughing.  I said, "Oh man, I really need to blog this--it's too hilarious!"  And Ben said, "Yeah you really should."

So here I am again.

And, without further ado, Liam's ABCs:

We were doing these flashcards that feature an uppercase and lowercase letter set on one side, and a character from Disney on the other.  My little genius could identify every single letter, but he had a much harder time with the characters.....  Here were his responses:

Mm  is for.....http://hd.wallpaperswide.com/thumbs/tow_mater_cars_movie-t2.jpg    "Car!" shouts Liam.


Qq is for..... http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-iE8c81vTH70/T35Bx3m74gI/AAAAAAAAENc/rAAG0ulws7s/s1600/250px-Queen_of_Hearts.jpg  "Princess!" shouts Liam.


Aa is for..... http://images1.fanpop.com/images/photos/2600000/ariel-the-little-mermaid-2603266-303-752.jpg  "Barbie!" shouts Liam.

Tt is for.... http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101203150941/kingdomhearts/images/7/7c/Tinkerbell.png  "Cinderella!" shouts Liam.


Zz is for.... http://www.lionking.org/imgarchive/Clip_Art/zazu04.gif  "Parrot!" shouts Liam.


What cracked me up the most about all of this is that he was SO confident in his answers.  Absolutely sure that he was right.

Finally, I decided to give him one that I was sure he knew....

Dd is for.... http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091210033561/disney/images/7/76/Dumbo-HQ.JPG  "Gumbo!" shouts Liam.

So close, kid.  So close.

To summarize:
Letter recognition and language skills = awesome.
Pop culture references = fail.

I can live with that.
