Just a quick post to share with you a little of the fun day I got to spend today with my daughter, Chicken Mama, and the little peanut she nannies for each week.
They had several errands to do and invited me along. We went to the grocery store, the library, two other stops in town and then up to the farm so Chicken Mama could pick up her week's supply of dairy products.
At the library we checked out about seventy books (give or take a few). When we stopped back at my house, the peanut asked that I put all the books on the couch and she sorted them into two piles. She said, "These are for before bed, these we can read now."
She politely asked if she could please play with eggs in the basket on the shelf behind her in the pictures. (The eggs are made of wood so no fear!) She is truly the most articulate two-year old I have ever known.
And, yes, that is a cast she has on her left leg. She fell off the platform of a little plastic slide in a playroom (thankfully not while under Chicken Mama's care) and hit the floor just wrong.
Oh, gosh. Maybe I shouldn't have asked her to smile for this last picture.
