On Friday we were working on Reid’s calendar. They have one at daycare as well and so it surprises me that Reid has trouble with the month but since we’ve been spotty in doing the one at home, I can’t say anything. When we discuss the days of the week, Reid likes to start by saying her favourite day (I think that it is Tuesday this week) even though she usually knows what day it is, thanks to our waking up song. We then have to provide the answers to “Yesterday was …” and “Tomorrow is …”
I was hinting for Reid to guess the day and told her it started with “f”. When she didn’t immediately say “Friday”, I said “fffff” and Reid thought a bit and then said triumphantly, “Fursday”. Well, since Reid has trouble with the “th” digraph she did a good job matching the two sounds. Once I was done laughing (silently, in a way to protect Reid’s dignity), I tried to clarify the “th”sound of Thursday and spelled out all of the letters in Friday and then supplied the word.
