No, No, NO!!

I'm wondering if some of what I've been saying to Sophie has rubbed off on her. Her favourite phrase of late:

" No, no, NO!!"

Would you like this book? No, no, NO!

How about this book? No, no, nooo!!

It's never just a simple no. It's always an enthusiastic triplet.

Do you want to eat? No, no, noooo!!

Do you want to go downstairs to the playground? No, no, NO!

Do you want to go for class?


OK, I get it already, but you're still doing things my way, for now.

Orange polka dots! Looking mod and retro in class with orange balloons for a festive touch. The adults loved the retro smock. One enthusiastic little girl, however, thought Sophie's dress was full of orange stickers that the teacher was giving out. So she tugged on her dress and when she found the orange 'stickers' weren't coming off, raked a hand across Sophie's eyes and made the poor girl cry.

My poor dear's gonna have to stand up for herself more in the face of bullies and aggressive tots.


Who says you don't learn anything from reading fiction?

Thanks to Justina Chen Headley's North of Beautiful, I've discovered a totally new (to me) and exciting adventure called geocaching.
I hope I'll get to participate soon and more later in this cool treasure hunt as the toddler grows up.

Wheeeeee! What fun!!
