1. I got a "new" play shirt for Eleanor at the local thrift store the other day and after washing it, I put it on her today before we went out to play. She was very excited about her new shirt, but the tag must have been scratching her side. She finally pulled her shirt up and found the tag, then very happily proclaimed, "There a book in there mommy!". In Eleanor's 2-year-old mind anything that has words on it must be a book, even if it is just a receipt from Walmart!
2. Once we were outside playing, Sean was having a blast in his own little world. By the way, he now has an imaginary friend that he talks to all day long! Anyway, he was running around, riding his trike, coloring with chalk and so on when he happened to spot a ladybug in the grass. We looked at it and talked about how we'd seen one at Grammy's house the other day and then he said, "that was the cutest little ladybug I ever seen in my entire life!".
