I have always loved the letter V. How could I not, with a name like Valerie Van Essen? It seemed like my very own letter and if anyone else had a V in their name it was usually just one, so I definitely had claim to the letter in its entirety.
Now I have a few kids who have the same sort of infatuation with their own letters so I'm relieved to know that it is somewhat typical to feel that way.
When I got married I dropped one of my V's but of course I still consider it my favorite letter. :)
