Zoe had a stomach ache last night and this morning, so she stayed home from school. She wanted me to play cards with her this morning, so I taught her how to play crazy eights. Eleanor wanted to play too, so the three of us played a game. At one point, Eleanor had to draw lots of cards until she could lay down and it was so cute when she said, "I'm going to lose." I was impressed that she knew that having a lot of cards was not a good thing. Then at the end of the game when I announced that Zoe won, Eleanor used her favorite phrase, "Darn it!". And then went on her merry way.
This afternoon I walked into the living room to discover Eleanor wearing my long, black boots with her black pants hiked up to look like shorts. I told her she looked like Barbie and she could be Barbie for Halloween. That made her smile and she said, "Yeah! I could be Barbie.com!...Nah, I want to be a cat for Halloween." Having her mention Barbie.com made me laugh because that was exactly what I was thinking about when I saw her outfit...she has been playing on Barbie.com too much!
Seeing the backside or bottom half of Kate under or in something has been happening a lot lately. Here she is in her "jailbird outfit" under our bed.
There is so much to explore around here!
