The Letter Q

Mary went to the salon yesterday and she looks super cute and ready for camp with her new braids. I left her with LaKeisha and then Bryce picked her up later. I had the twins in the car on the way home and Harrison was throwing a huge tantrum until I said, "Let's look for all the letters of the alphabet on the highway signs and billboards. I think the hardest letters to find will be K, Q, X, and Z." Well the boys were very intent on looking for those letters (although I was wrong about X because of "Exit" and "Next" which we saw a dozen times).

But the letter Q alluded us. Harrison and I brainstormed words like "queen", "quilt", and "quiet" to which Cameron would tease, "I saw that word!" I tried to come up with ones that had Q in the middle like "require" and "aqua". Cameron also racked his brain and went through a few nonsense words before shouting . . .


I was ready to push the parental panic button but neither boy seemed to find any significance to this seemingly made-up term and went along looking for other letters. Thank goodness for that, right?

Such a naughty member of the alphabet.
