Sweet Spot

After a recent visit to an ice cream shop, we pointed out to our daughter that she had chocolate on her knee. Thinking it was just one of her freckles, she explained, “That’s not chocolate. Those are my polka dots.”

Library Learning

We were at the library enjoying story time when the librarian engaged the group in finger play songs.  My daughter did not participate but just watched everyone else.  After the third song she whispered in my ear, “You’re doing great, mom. Keep it up.”

Pins and Needles

My son loves books and especially loves to read while sitting on the potty. After several books and many, many minutes, he was ready to get up, but of course his feet had fallen asleep. He stood and started stomping them. He said, “Help, Mom! My feet have sprinkles on them and I can’t get them off!”

Testing the Water

I took my son to kindergarten registration, which was being held at a local church. When we arrived, he asked, “Will they have to pour water on my head?”

Feeding Time

My husband and I were discussing plans for feeding our 6-week-old daughter while I went to a doctor’s appointment. Our older daughter gave me a confused look and said, “But Dad doesn’t have milk in his boobs!”
