This morning he was writing on a dry erase board as I was preparing to take him to preschool and I wrote an "R" on the board.
"That's my name!"
"Yes, it's the first letter in your name. It's an R." I drew another one and told him to try to write one. He wrote a P so I told him that the R was missing his "leg." I added one and finished loading the dishwasher. When I checked back on him I found that he had written several R's.
On the 3rd R, Ryan decided to personify it. The Mr. R has a face, hair, arms and hands. And something else.
How do I know it's Mr. R? Ryan excitedly showed me that the R had a peepee. Anatomically correct letters, yeah. Hopefully Ryan won't show off his new found writing skills at preschool today.
