Slow picture days...

Just like me, my girl's a dunker...
Yep, I couldn't be prouder. I just feel like I'm teaching her so many valuable life skills, y'know?

What, I don't have to get it all in my mouth at once?

Almost got it all in there...

All through...Can I have another?

So, Lindy wants to know--how do YOU eat an OREO?

PS. I know two posts ago Lindy was eating cheesecake but please don't think I only give her sweets. We are very blessed that Lindy is a good eater and that she eats a variety of things. Lately, her favorite vegetable is edamame. Ironically, the package is labeled Product of China.

Maybe this Cinderella thing has gone too far...

Lindy LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Cinderella. I have an old VHS copy of the movie (yes, we still have a VCR in the house, too) that I purchased many years ago to have on hand in case I was watching kids. Toward the beginning of the year I pulled the movie out for her to watch and she immediately fell in love with it. This was so fun for me because Cinderella is my fave! Lindy loves to quote lines from the movie and act out many of the scenes over and over again. She really can't get enough of it. However, I'm wondering if things have gone too far...

Last Friday when I told her to do something, she dropped her head down and very obediently said in a subservient manner, "Yes, stepmother." It wasn't an isolated event...It has happened half a dozen times since.

Hmmm...looks like I better consult with my Fairy Godmother to find a new movie.

Say what?

First, the picture is completely unrelated to this story...It's just Lindy delighting herself in a piece of cheesecake.

When it is time for Lindy to give kisses at bedtime, she takes it very seriously. The girl can really plant the most wonderful kisses. Ever since she saw Lady & The Tramp a few months ago, she has loved "sharing spaghetti" as she calls it. I literally have to pull her off of me at times. The other night she was over zealous and there was some creepage of the tongue if you get my drift. I said, "Lindy, where on earth did you learn to kiss like that?" She replied, "church." Say what??? I think she's taking that "greet one another with a holy kiss" passage a bit too far. Maybe I better check what's going on in the three year old class.

Fun with "Mr. Snore"

We had the privilege to host our friend, Mr. Moore, earlier this week. Lindy called him "Mr. Snore" and had GREAT fun with him.

Within moments of his arrival--and learning that he is an accomplished musician--she had him playing tunes on the piano for her.

She also decided it would be fun to accompany him for a duet.

A grandpa of four (three of them girls), Lindy targeted "Mr. Snore" right away as someone whom she could hold hostage for a while and make read to her. He obliged her wishes for quite a while on more than one occasion. EXPERIENCE!

We were all glad to have the opportunity to see him. Mr. & Mrs. Moore were Don's sponsors while he was at the Naval Academy and their home was his home away from home. It was nice to return a teensy portion of all they've done for Don by having him in our home.

Thanks for visiting and come back again, "Mr. Snore."
