Early literacy 

E made some valentines for her grandparents today. She was especially fond of drawing people and writing things on the hearts. On one side of the heart she wrote "Mimi" (for K-, since she can't write her own name yet and so therefore E "helps" wherever she can). On the other side she wrote (unconventionally from right to left, with all the letters backwards, so you could tell you were supposed to read it through a mirror) "AEFL"

me: "What does that say, E?"
E: "I don't know... [looks at her letters] it says 'Ah eh fuh luh'"

OF COURSE! How could I have missed it? AEFL mirror image or not says "ahehfuhluh"

Now I just have to figure out what it means.
