Funny Girls

We went to my folk's house last week for a couple of days. On the last day as we were loading the car, I noticed Thing 1 did not have her glasses on. One of my frustrations is how often she puts them down and walks off, and the resulting search required. My frustration increased as it got later and later, and we still had a long drive ahead of us. We searched everywhere, multiple times for nearly half an hour. Finally I was outside AGAIN and caught sight of them, one of the ear pieces looped over the webbing on the back of a patio chair. Thing 1 groaned and said, "Why is it we don't check the easy places first?!"


When Thing 2 has a bad day everyone knows it. She is not one to hide her emotions. As I was tucking her in a couple of weeks ago after a bad day she seemed to need a boost so I started listing off some of her good attributes. She listened attentively, very quiet. I went on for a bit but eventually I ran down. She looked at me for a second and then she said softly, "You can tell me that again."


As a reward for reading, here are a few pictures from a hike we took the girls on a couple of weeks ago. They whined a lot at the start, but made it to the top of the mountain and did wonderfully.


  1. I love that your girls are so cute. Sublime Things!

  2. Thing 2 is a lot like me when I was her age. I needed lots of reassurance :)


I'd love to hear from you! YES, YOU!
