The First Adolescence {369}

Dear Miss Dinah,

This morning Daddy taught the lesson to you children. He said you did a fantastic job 'mimicking' the other children by sitting in your chair exactly the way they were during the lesson.

After lunch and nap you and I went to do some shopping, but first we had to wait for Daddy to bring back the keys so you got to hang out in one of your favorite spots for a little while: the front seat of the car.

At the store this afternoon, we got samples of a baby applesauce that you thought was quite tasty. The woman handing out the treats was very friendly and very wise -- she was a grandma :) She said to make sure to "stay on top of those little ones," meaning you! She said, "This is the 'first adolescence.' You can take care of a lot of problems now before they become issues later." I thought that was a unique way of thinking about things.

After shopping, we came home to make some dinner.

After dinner you decided to take some pieces of paper towel off the roll, and do all the things that you know to do with them. First you wiped the floor, then you 'blew' your nose, and then you went and threw it away in the trash! Nice work, little one.

 Sometimes you spend a little too long loitering around the trash can to investigate it's treasures. At that point we kindly ask you to step away :)

I love you,

Mamma <3
