Behold the Power of The Letter Factory

We had Beth, Chris and Mia over for dinner on Sunday. They brought me wine and a Junkyard cd so I was immediately won over.

Despite Beth’s assertions that we are much cooler than them, I thought they were pretty fly. (See, just by calling them fly it proved that I’m probably not cooler than anybody, except maybe Carlos Mencia).

Mia and Goon Squad Watching tv Here is the best part, thanks to the power of the DVD and The Leap Frog Letter Factory we were actually able to have a grown up conversation while the children were zombies in front of the tv learned phonics.

So while Beth seems to be convinced that Gabe and I spent the whole time just thinking about how uncool they were, what we were really thinking was: The internet would be so jealous!

(For those of you who want to know if Ian is in love with Mia, the truth is I think he has a thing for Beth.)

  1. I am so incredibly jealous! You both are so cool and I would love to hang out with either of you (or both would be even better!)

  2. You know…it’s such a small world. I discovered Beth’s blog through a “liver friend” of ours…and then she pops up over here, too! It’s amazing to me how small the blogging world is….

    I have got to find that DVD…

  3. The Letter Factory is like crack to those young ‘uns. Good stuff.

    We should have a big DC bloggy get together one of these days. (I know I say that all the time, but summer’s coming up and maybe it will actually be doable!)

  4. We just got that and another DVD from a friend and WOW. THe Letter Factory one has proven a great teaching tool and Thomas leaves me alone through the whole video. Score!

    Oh and your visit – SO jealous. I want to come over and party with your coolness. Glad you had fun with those cool kids though!

  5. The Letter Factory? I’m going to have to get my hands on that. Maybe Dawson will actually, you know, learn some things.

  6. I don’t know what’s I’m more impressed by: the kids in the hypnotic trance or the half cat suspended in mid-air…

    My neighbor across the street has a two-year old and last fall I saw the same expression on her face when Baby Einstein was in the DVD player. Obviously, I know nothing about either of these things (I think maybe my kids are too old for this stuff, 😉 but then again, you never know), but I sure would have appreciated the occasion grown-up conversation when they were little.

  7. i live in the wrong place…my little zombies would fit in perfectly with your crew :)

  8. How cool. I had wondered before if you guys knew each other, being in the same area and all.

    I’m meeting some fellow bloggers this weekend. I’m sure I’ll be the dork at that dinner.

  9. I guess I’m not very cool either…. Carlos who? did he do Black Magic Woman and Smooth?

  10. I love what The Letter factory does to my son as well. We just got a copy of the Talking Word Factory and it is almost as entrancing. Toddler/preschool crack. Gotta love it. :)

  11. I’m jealous of both you guys! Chris & Beth are near the top of my “want to meet” list, and you, of course, owe me a beer.

  12. I always think of Beth and I as “fly.”

    Seriously, we had a great time even though I feel like I, personally, was terribly uncool. But then, I don’t get out much.

  13. I will definatly ave to try out that DVD on my kids.

  14. I really need to get that DVD. Adult conversation time? What IS that?

  15. I get to meet the Cactus family myself this weekend. Looking forward to it, although I’ll be the only non-parent in this group gathering. :)
