Miscellaneous Cuteness

I have a little speaker for my iPod so the kids can play their tunes on it without trying to eat my iPod. Dad was over, and Claire wanted "Mahna Mahna" (big surprise there). Dad told her, "I don't know how to work it, Claire," and she handed it to him and said, quite clearly, "TRY!"

Mary Grace is playing dress up today. I wanted her to wear her princess dress over her jammies, because it's cold and damp today and I don't want her to freeze. She said, "But Mommy, I can just pretend that I'm warm." She's got me there.

Same dress up outfit has a yellow "crown" that is made of fabric. Mary Grace calls it the "cheese crown." It really does look like slices of Kraft Singles on a piece of elastic...

Claire's language is going nuts - she's learning new words every day. Some of them are real stumpers. For instance, "Charlie and Lola" are now "Chola." Mickey Mouse is "Mick Mou." Goodnight Moon is "Night Moo."

***

Mary Grace and Claire are playing dolls. Claire says to Mary Grace, "Hi Mama," to Mary Grace in a tone that made it clear that she was playing pretend.

***

Whenever I come in, I say, "Hi Baby!" Claire has started saying, "Hi Baby!" to me when I come in.

***

Whenever we go to the gym, whether it's time for her class or not, Claire says, "I want play!"

I have 10,000 pounds of laundry to do today, plus I need to start cooking for Thanksgiving (today I'm going to make the rolls and the pie crusts, and possibly the cranberry sauce). It's a good thing it's cold, wet, and rainy outside. Perfect baking weather.

Sounds like Claire is getting smarter every day! Must be a rocket scientist in the house. :o)

If I could pretend that it was warm today, I would. My toes are froze, and I'm in an office building. Argh.

Happy Baking!
