the voice of experience

One of Sylvie's friends at the preschool has been putting little heart notes into her paper cubby the past couple days.  He is older than Syl, so he is able to write inscriptions and make little envelopes... he puts a lot of effort into them. 

While Caroline was doing her homework, Sylvie was playing with the most recent note from her friend.  Caroline asked what she had, and I said that Sylvie had been getting sweet notes from a little boy in her class.

Caroline sighed and said, "Aaaah.  I can't believe that my little sister is already learning about romance.  They really do grow up so fast these days."

run of the mill snow day play

School is canceled today, so the girls are playing together this morning.  They're playing with stuffed dogs and a change counter.  I overheard Caroline, in the voice of Rosa the weiner dog, say, "Here in Puppyland, our tax rates are very affordable.  Here is 20 cents you may borrow to pay your taxes.  It keeps you legal."

monsanto is already on it, dude

A lovely suppertime discussion...

"Mom, wouldn't it be great if meatloaf grew on plants so that we didn't have to kill all those animals for this delicious dinner?"
