Papa speculated that the removal of the 6-MP may have had an effect on Isa’s hunger level. She actually ate today. Something happened because she asked for food and then actually ate it. Sometimes she’s mentioned being hungry but then sort of pokes it around. Today, she had a good day, snuggled up in the house, because it was cold and rainy day. She kept her jammies on all day. I have no idea where she gets these ideas. Tuesday is our weekend.
I gave her and her sister the little treat that I bought for them. A book called The Baby Catalogue by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. I had to give them a board book, I ordered a hardcover, and didn’t realize what it was. So all you used bookstore people find me the hardback with paper pages. I’ll be grateful. If you have small children, order this book. It is a super favorite of both of mine.
Papa did some karate lessons with them. You gotta see G. kick, you’d be scared.
Isa & G. played in their room with a toy they got from their Auntie L. and some puzzles. They colored pictures with their new glitter crayons thanks to Auntie W, A & A. Took a very long nap. Wrote letters, like the kind that people used to do, before email. Listened to French music. Took a bathie. Then the girls draw with markers as I read them a book called, Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath, another great book. Then off to bed, which took a little longer tonight for some reason.
