Get ready to be excited!!

I was finally able to catch Ava reading one of her favourite Spot books. This is the cutest thing in the world, I just love when she reads this book to me.

"No, that's a croca-duba-u....croca-dila-u...croca" Don't hurt yourself kid.

Reminds me of the scene in Finding Nemo where Nemo can't say "sea anemone"

Hahahahaha it's so true, she was trying so hard to say crocodile. I'm surprised it actually came out anything close to crocodile, usually she just says "It's a W".

She's a genius. There are lots of W's on the back of them.

You're biased because she's your princess.

1) The yard looks awesome!
2) Children reading books to their parents is an early literacy "best practice," according to the parent education curriculum I'm editing. Way to go, Randomness!
3) "Crocodile" is a super-tricky word. "Mazagine" foiled me for years, and I know a child who specialized in reading aloud about "ractoons." No idea where she got the "t"!

P.S. I thought of ya today because I'm making up a recipe--albeit for bird food. I'm snowed in (it's a mess in this neck o' the woods), out of bird seed, and hungry birdies abound. So: Experimentally, I've made some polenta, I'm toasting it in the oven, and then I'm going to add some chopped peanuts and dried cherries. Heck, if the birdies turn up their beaks I might eat it myself. Be well! S.

ooooh I like polenta! Sadly I will not make it myself because I haven't been able to replicate the deliciousness that my Step Mom and or Restaurants seem to!

I for one think you will have very happy and full birdies! If not send some to us and we'll gladly enjoy it! :)

Thanks for the compliments on the yard and Ava! She certainly does love to read, I usually read her a lady bug book when she goes to bed and she almost has that book down pat! She's incredibly smart and every day I'm amazed at the wonderful things she can do.

Hooray for Princess Ava!!! :-)

re: the polenta (or po-LENT, as my italian friend pronounces it)...it always ends up a quivering, blecchy cream of wheaty thing when I try to make it for people. The bird version actually turned out better...I guess the pressure was off. :-)
