About four months ago we received Sesame Street’s Learning About Letters in the mail through SwapaDVD. We had gotten the movie a couple of times from the library, and since my daughter loved it so much (especially the Cookie Monster song), I decided to go ahead and get it for her.
When the DVD arrived in the mail, it was a really big deal. I showed her the package and, mustering up all the suspense I could to entice her eager curiosity, slowly opened it: “Guess what…… ” She watched with rapt attention as I pulled out the movie, “….we got the Cookie Monster movie!!! The mailman just brought it. Now we don’t have to get it from the library anymore!”
This apparently made a huge impact on her. Months later…
Daddy: “Hey, guess what.”
“I love you.”
“Hey guess what. Say ‘what’ “
“We have the Cookie Monster! We got it in the mail. The mailman gave it to us.”

…but I’m sure she does love Daddy, too.
