Mama's a Lemon!

Kalea came to me and asked for help with a page in one of her books where the first and last letters were missing from words. When we were on the picture of lemon, Kalea was having trouble with the first sound. So I thought it would help if she said other words starting with that sound that she is able to write and said "What's my name"...

Kalea - "Mama!"
Me - "No, the other one"
Kalea - "Lemon!!!!!!!!!!"

It took 10 minutes of hysterical laughter, tears running down her cheek in between gasps of "Mama's a lemon!" and "Why did I just call you a lemon?" before she settled down and figured out the connection between the sound and name of "l"!
