Naomi's writing

Naomi has just finished writing about 12 thank you notes, completely on her own. Her words are:

thanufor
kumento
mibrthda
irilelit
urprezns.

Anyone want to guess how to interpret that? I'll post the answer in a few days =)
I'm so excited that she's writing on her own initiative finally. She read a story about kids having a "tag sale" and really took to the idea. She's been making signs and labels for her own ong0ing tag sale ever since. She's just learned how to write the symbol for "cents" and now we tell her that the Brits don't use cents! She gets to learn about pounds and pence! All part of being a "third culture kid."

Sure, I'll take a stab at it!
"thanufor" - Thank you for
"kumento" - coming to
"mibrthda" - my birthday.
"irilelit" - I really liked
"urprezns." - your presents.
