"b says /b/ as in bell"

Alternately - b says /b/ as in battle. 

You know the kind ... where the will of a 4 year old meets head on the will of his 30 something mother who is trying to maintain the image of a happy Monday in her little homeschool, all while considering locking the children in their rooms until their Daddy arrives home from work.

Okay, so maybe I am exaggerating.

Or maybe not.

It doesn't really matter though, because in the end, Mama won and the 4 year old went through his entire alphabet repeating the name of the leter and the letter's sound.

And, nobody got locked in their room ... yet.

Haha! Been there and thought that! So glad your little man cooperated and didn't have to look at the back of his bedroom door till Daddy got home!

I can assure you, that one day your blessings will be grown and you will long for these days! I know it seems hard now, but it is so much harder when they are older and you have no control.

But the Lord is in control and my prayer life has been strengthened having older boys! And my nerves probably couldn't handle know all the details anyway!
