talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Tough kid

Nora had on a sweet little sweater I found for a couple bucks which hadn't even been worn by three kids ahead of her! Not that old clothes are a bad thing, mind you. We LOVE hand-me-downs and are thrilled to find ourselves recipients of previously-loved clothing through donation or thrift store purchase. Still Nora had, for once, a sweet creamy sweater over this undershirt of Fiona's. For about an hour. Then "too hot" and "too itchy" and too many other "toos" started crowding her speech.

Next thing I knew the sweater had become 'a little bed for one of the cats' upstairs in the hall. The cats didn't like it either, by the way. Maybe next week she'll like it. Or perhaps we'll find ourselves needing sweaters less and less. The most likely scenario, however, is that the next child who wears it might have slightly more appreciation for the sweet, creamy little sweater that was only worn for an hour.
