She can stand on one leg without holding onto anything.
She can also help me with the dishes, washing all things plastic. This gives me a chance to read my latest young adult book from the library— right now it’s Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick. A page-turner. I can’t wait to find out what’s happening next!

It was cold again today. Below zero. Come on, spring! Don’t do this to us! We had to wear our winter gear again. We went to the playground. Sonya went down the slide once and proclaimed, “My butt is freezing! We have to go home and be inside today! It’s too cold for my butt outside!”
I’m not sure if that’s actually funny, or if I’m regressing into a toddler-adult that giggles at butt jokes. I have been living on an afternoon diet of finger foods and tiny juice boxes at the playground while I read heavily illustrated books.
