No, I am not being profane! I might mean happy Friday as well, all of us I am sure, have had a hell of a long week.
But, what I really mean is "F" day. You know, like the letter.
It looks like Shea may have finally mastered the "F" sound today with Bubble. "F" is one of the classic tough letter sounds that take a lot of lip and mouth control. Shea would just skip the whole sound and put something easier in it's place.
Sunny for Funny
Serry boat for Ferry boat
Sog for Frog
You get the idea.
Interestingly, he didn't seem to have a problem with putting the "F" sound on the end of a word.
Off, Cough, Yaff (laugh), you already know about that pesky "L".
But, today Shea was full of F's: funny, found, ferry boat. They seemed to come easily, without him stuggling. In fact, he didn't even seem to think twice about it.
Our work this week is to keep them coming. Don't let him slip back to old easier pre-F days.
When it was time to go, Shea said, "I no want to go." When pressed he said, "Stay with Bubble. I miss Bubble."
Bubble said, "Shea, you will always, always be my very special friend." He then went over and gave her a big long hug that melted good old Bubble to blurry tears.
She said, "Shea you have made my day."
Thanks Bubble, you have made our day too. A very Fine Friday to us all.
