With EIGHT children I've told them "B says Buh - and has a Big Belly"....and they've bought it. When they've confused "b" and "d".....I've simply reminded them that b has a belly.
"Which one has the B elly - remember it says buh".
No one has EVER questioned this.
Mini me is learning her alphabet. She got stuck. I said, "Which one has a buh buh belly?"
She responded by pointing to "b," "This one has a buh buh belly." Just as I was about to congratulate her she continued, "But, Mom, this one (pointing to the "d" has a buh buh butt."
I was stunned! I later told our 25 yo daughter, Bre, and she told me she'd always wondered about that when I shared the trick. What in the world?
Living all of life before the face of God...
