A Wonderful Fluff-Off Day

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.

My youngest asked why I didn't have more pictures of him on the blog and I said whenever I take pictures, he looks BAD on purpose and when he started giving me good pictures, he'd see them. A smile like this would be most welcome. making freaky faces is his stage now. I guess I should print some of them off for his graduation scrapbook in 6 or 7 years so we can laugh at his freaky face stage, but for now, I'm working on pictures that I can show without having to explain that he was NOT having a fit at the time..

Too cute! I noticed the cast right away, poor thing! At least it will be gone by summer. I check out about that many books too when I go to the library, my hubby thinks I'm insane!

Hey, Erin - Why deny kids books from the library? What better way to expose them to the wealth books can offer throughout a lifetime?
