LO Share Labelmaker

When 014 was about 003 we got a labelmaker.  He already knew how to spell a lot of words, and was a beginning reader, so he put his talents to good use.  Not everything was spelled correctly, but it was so cute!  To this day, he still likes to be able to categorize things and make them "fit" into nice, neat little boxes!

And yes, he did write on the toilet paper roll.  With marker.  I have no idea what it means.  He also had his own code.

Paper = MME
Letters = Chip Chatter, Paper Studio, MM, Benzilla, Chatterbox
Stickers = Pebbles, Benzilla

LO Share - Zak-isms

All kids have quirks.  One of 012's is a very unique language that has taken years to decipher.    When he was younger, it could drive me crazy.   Here are the ones on the layout...

last day = yesterday
this night = last night
rubber ducky sailboat = I'm frustrated/I don't like that

Now that he's older, he's started using sound effects, that sometimes, most times only he can distinguish the difference between.  "use your words" is a very common saying around here.

We have the angry elephant, the annoying ferret, the screech owl, the fiery dragon, etc. 

If you haven't done so already, I encourage you to scrap your little, or not so little, one's quirks.

Paper = MME
Letters = Chip Chatter, MM, Chatterbox, Li'l Davis
Stickers = MAMBI, 7 Gypsies, ??

LO Share - Monster Book

Simple, fun little layout I did over one of my favorite childhood books.  I got rid of it based on the urgings of someone else.  I regret that decision.

Paper = DCWV
Letters = Paper Studio
Journal Block is an old time card from the plant where my brother used to work
Flowers = Prima
Brad = MM

Thanks so much for looking!
