Maggie loves this show on PBS called Martha Speaks. It's about a dog who eats Alphabet soup one day, but the letters accidentally go to her brain instead of her stomach. This causes her to speak. And she talks non-stop (something that Maggie can really relate to).
It's a really cute show and it's helpful with kids and vocabulary words.
So, Maggie decided that we should get some Alphabet soup and give it to Willie. She really wanted to know what he was thinking and what he would say if he could talk.
Because I'm a good parent (aka a sucker) I took her to Raley's and we got a can of soup. We came home and put it in Willie's bowl. Maggie drew him a picture above his bowl to let him know where his food was located. He really didn't have a problem with knowing where it was, but it's a cute picture.
She was very disappointed when he didn't start talking after lapping up a bowl of alphabet soup. I must admit that I was a little disappointed as well. I wonder what Willie would tell us if he could talk.
