Some kids play house

M plays "daycare."

As we drive around town sometimes we see a new playground and M says "Let's go to that playground!"

"Sorry kiddo, we can't. That's a daycare."

"What's day care?"

Recently I've started going to the amazing gym facility offered at our community. I told the kids it was daycare (all 30-40 minutes we're there). M proceeded to dance around and sing "I'm going to daycare, I'm going to daycare" (1 2 la li 3 4, 1 2 la li 3 4 You know the tune).

Today after watching "Elmo visits the fire house" I over heard M's fantasy presentation to her daycare class about fire safety.

"If a fire happened in the house it would be great because then the firemen would come" she said.

Oh no!

funny things

Today M needed to go potty as we approached the check out at the dollar store. Hmmm. Luckily we were going to Hobby Lobby next which has a nice bathroom. So I asked her to wait and she said she'd try.

After successfully getting to Hobby Lobby and going to find elastic, she reminded me that she needed to go to the bathroom. So we hurried off down the aisle. We made it! I thanked her for doing a good job of not having an accident.

"I couldn't have done it without you" came the reply from behind the stall door.
