My daughter knows her letters, if not in order, can count to ten and a little beyond, and knows her manners...
Me: what letter is this?
Nora: G!
Me: What letter is this?
Nora: Q!
Me: Good job!
Nora: Thank you!

Yesterday, Erin had asked Nora to put Barney in the wash, because he needed a bath. She did, and Erin took the laundry downstairs. Somewhere between Nora's bedroom and the basement, Barney disappeared! We looked all over the house, through the laundry (three times), under the basement stairs, even in my toolboxes that Nora had been playing with (if its new to her, its a toy, at least for a while; it was entertaining watching her moving the small toolbox and try to move the big one), but no luck.

While in her bedroom looking to see if Barney was under the bed, I noticed something in the corner, and realized that maybe Barney had been in the wash all along, but in the wrong washing machine.Nora had taken him back out of the laundry, and put him in her plastic toy washing machine. Ha! I laughed my fool head off for the longest time about that one.

A few weeks ago, Erin and Nora were talking to each other, and Nora was repeating things that her mother told her. I don't remember what I said and Erin said in response, but Erin looks at Nora and says "say 'daddy crazy." Well, Nora looks at her, and says "mumma crazy!" Its good that I have excellent bladder control, I almost died.

Is it May or April? "April Showers bring....blah blah blah." But no, rain, rain, rain. This week, last week, next week? Seriously?

Here's some pictures that I hope brighten your day.

We like this book!
