I'm amazed by my two little ones each and every day. They make me laugh. They make me cry. They make me shake my head in disbelief.
Last night was no different.
M. picked up an extra goodie bag of foot fun that I made as little Christmas gifts. I decided to keep one for myself, but never managed to put it away.
"Mom, what's this?" M. asked inspecting the contents of the goodie bag.
"Fun stuff for my feet! You know what that is. What is it?"
"Umm..." M. pondered, searching for the words. Then shouted, "It's pail nolish!"
Laughter erupted and we corrected her accidental word play.
P. browsed the three rows of books and plucked an old favorite from the shelf.
"Mommy, will you read Peek-A-Who? with me?"
"Of course!" I'm one to never say no to reading a book!
I read through it once with her help. To my surprise, she started back at the beginning and began reading aloud each page. And she continued to do so, two, three, four times!
"Peek a who. Peek a - moo. Peek a - ghost! Boo! Peek a - Z. Zoo! Peek a choo-choo! Peek a - me!"
Pure delight in my eyes!
As P. was reading, M. was playing catch with Daddy. The mini-frisbee made it's way to her sister and bopped her on the hand.
P. proceeded to yell, "Oh, sh&#! Sh%&! Sh*%! Sh$#!"
Smiles and laughter held in tightly. Then BIG eyes at Daddy asking: Where did she learn that?!? Shaking my head in disbelief of her timing.
