"S" is for Starfall. As in www.starfall.com.
A friend just told me about it, and it's so cool! The website has lots of alphabet and learning games, engaging but simple graphics and pleasant sound effects. No obnoxious, on-my-last-nerve songs or voices...hooray!
"S" is for Sick.
So this is just the thing to help pass the time since Eli's been under the weather for two days now. Nothing serious- a fever, headache, and cough. To tell you the truth, it's not so bad because he's funny, sweet and really cooperative when he's sick. We don't know why- maybe he actually thinks he needs us a little.
"Mama, something's wrong. Something's the matter with my head right here," he whined, pointing above his nose.
"Yeah, honey, you have a headache. I'm sorry that it hurts. We have medicine to help that feel better."
"What is it called again?"
"A head ache. It's when your body is sick and it makes your head hurt. But it will get better soon."
"Hey Daddy, guess what? I had a heddick and Mama gave me some medicine that tasted like Kool-Aid and now it's better!"

In a sing-song voice, "I kno-ow...maaaybeee...I could put on my bike helmet, and it will help those pieces in my head stay together that are falling apart."
