This blog post is brought to you today by the letter P!

*I know, I know.....that whole "blogging more regularly" thing isn't going so well.  I definitely need to post a summer catch up blog, just so that I can remember everything we've been doing!  In the on!*

Yesterday morning, Adam and I were watching Team Umizoomi.  (a moderately mind numbing, but not entirely eye twitch inducing, kids show on Nick Jr that actually does a pretty good job teaching early math concepts)  The "umi friends" were on a pirate ship, so naturally Adam was riveted.  As one may need to do when on a pirate ship, they had to feed the crocodiles while sailing.....and these crocodiles only ate things that started with P.  (I don't know why.  Some of them were also blue.  Suspension of disbelief.....whatever.)  Adam did a really good job picking out all of the P food, and then started listing other P words.  "puh....puh.....pirate!!"  I began a list of all the P words we could both think of, and just like that yesterday became "Letter P Day!" 

To start off the festivities, we decided to stay in our pajamas all day.  Even when we went to the grocery store.  (Fortunately I slept in yoga pants and a tank top, so I didn't look entirely like I belonged on the People of Walmart site.  Just mostly.  And yes, of course, we ran into people we knew. Never fails.) Here's a recap of the fun!

Pjs to the store?!  Oh yeah!

We read Pickle Things!

Snack time! (potato chips, peanut butter pretzels, popcorn, peaches, and pears)

We watched Peter Pan!  (feel the classic disney vhs power!!)


Playdoh time is serious business!

We painted on paper plates too!

Pretty pictures!

We finished our list with 33 P words!  Not too shabby!

Of course we also had pizza for dinner, and popsicles for dessert.  It was such a fun day, and by bedtime Adam was actually shouting out P words he was hearing people say in conversations or on tv. His last question of the day was "What yettew can we has a day of next?" so I guess this will become a tradition.  Once a week we'll have a letter day.....I'll let everyone know how it goes.  Of course I may be in trouble when we get to a letter that doesn't correspond with a bunch of stuff I just happen to have around the house!

Happy weekend everybody!
