The conversation in the car this morning:
Charlotte: "Claire is sick."
M: "Why do you say that?"
Charlotte: "She's sucking her finger."
M: (Boring lecture).
Claire: "I need to see a doctor at Duke Hospital!"
Such brand loyalty.
Louise has bravely been trying new things, despite some initial reluctance. Two weekends ago, she went ice skating at a birthday party. She didn't want to let go of the buckets, but she had fun. "Can we do it again?"
On Saturday, she had her first t-ball practice. She spent the first 5 minutes clinging to Daddy's leg, and then was quite distractable during batting practice. ("You want me to hold my arms up like a chicken?!!"). But she eventually got into things and is eager to go back. Her favourite part of both ice skating and t-ball? "Falling down!"
(To Mummy's amusement, Daddy helped the coaching staff on Saturday. Those kids will all throw like cricketers).
