Lizzy begs me to color with her often. "please with ice cream sprinkles!"
Today while coloring, I asked her what her favorite medium to color with was. Crayons, markers, pencils, paint, ect.
Her response, "Markers are my best."
Lizzy very seriously said, "because it gets all over your hands and makes really beautiful skin."
I asked to take a picture and she said I could if I shared it with someone. :-)

Nye was done with our hour and a half long grocery trip about 25 minutes into it. He ran around like a crazy man, pushed all the buttons on the scales, tried putting random food into the cart, and stopped listening.
It wasn't long before he found himself buckled into the cart. Indignant screaming ensued briefly followed by total silence. I didn't notice the quiet at first, but then it hit me and I began to pay very close attention to what he was doing.
Nye was eating raw kale by the handfuls, just as pleased as can be. Truly eating it too. It was already weighed and scanned so I let him at it. 25 total minutes of happy leaf eating and peace. O kale, I love you!
Later, after he woke up fussy from naps, he found the washed kale still sitting on the counter and worked on it for another 10 minutes or so.
My only concern? Tomorrow's diaper...

Then she did them all again, perfectly, at which point I ran to get my camera because that's what shocked parents do. This is her third time solving the worksheet.
Seriously?! I struggled with the concept of which way the arrows went at least until 2nd or 3rd grade. I knew the answer, but not the sign. Lucky little girl with her daddy's brain!
After the video, she cleaned up, looked at me and asked, "Can we play school now?"

How to use those ridiculously blunt knives your parents let you have:
When the food your cutting only laughs in the face of your pretend knife, take a bite out of it first without completely severing it from the food. Then try cutting it again. Even a stick will perform admirably using this patented method. All the best, mates!
