Here's a puzzling conversation I just had with my 4-year-old daughter M-, as she hit the home stretch in her quest to write out the whole alphabet.
Me (singing a portion of the song, since I couldn't bear to sing it all again for the 50th time): And the next letter is.. Q, R, S; T, U...
Me: That's right, now write that down.
M- (hesitating at the paper): Uhhhh...
Me: It's like the U, but pointy on the bottom, like this: (writing in the air)
Me: Remember... it's like an upside-down A, without a line across the middle?
M-: Oh! Like a V!
