Also she has surprisingly good bearings, and is able to recognize many locations while we are in route. She has independently realized that our CSA pickup location and our friend M's house are in the same neighborhood (just two blocks from each other). Her internal compass amazes me! I often wonder what the perspective of a three-year-old looks like in the car; I would imagine you can't see much more than the tops of the trees and roofs of the houses, but has awesome observation powers nonetheless.
I created this blog to try to capture the magic of childhood, the essence of what youthful spirit brings to our lives. My children put a smile on my face every day, and I wanted a place to record those moments. My own mother recorded snippets of her children in writing, and looking back at those is a precious memory for me.
About the Kids
M is a 6 year old ball of fire. She is feisty, bossy, and beautiful. She is in preschool now and absorbs knowledge like a sponge. We have to be very careful what we say around her because she remembers just about everything. The day she learns to read/spell, my husband and I will need to think of a whole new way to discretely communicate (Pig Latin!)
C is 4 and couldn't be more of a Boy. His motto is "how far can I throw it, and how loud can I make it crash". He likes noisy toys, the louder the better. Every day I see him learning new things, especially from M. They get along beautifully, but they definitely have their sister/brother feuds.
