E or Y...

Today at lunch B was writing a message to Margaret. She was asking me how to spell each of Margaret's family member's names. I would say the letter and she would write it. I started doing the dishes and she decided she wanted to spell Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy also. So, Eric helped her.
Eric told her how to spell Goofy...G-O-O-F-Y. When he said "Y" B said, "No. E."
Eric said "NO, Goofy ends in "Y".
So the argument continued.
B:"But Y makes the "yu" sound. And E makes the eeeeeee sound...see Goofeee"
I tried to interject:"B, your name ends with a Y and sounds like E."
She insisted that Goofy should end in E and we all gave up and decided her school teachers can teach her the difference!

In this photo you can see the arguement brewing...:)
