IMG 1442Watching:  Local musician Will Stroet‘s DVD.  She first fell in love with the songs while listening to Walk & Roll in the car, and after attending his concert and receiving a copy of his music DVD, she’s hooked.  She thinks Henry the Meowing Dog is absolutely hysterical and Full of Beans ranks second favourite.

Singing: 22 by Taylor Swift and Reading Revival by Will Stroet.  The funniest part is that if I try to sing either, she generously corrects my lyrics.  This girl has a memory like nothing else.

Playing:  Right now there is a whole lot of dress-up happening in our house.  She absolutely adores her dress-up centre and if we’re at home, she’s most likely in tutu and giraffe mask or a pink poodle costume, with her bedroom floor being absolutely covered in dress-up items.

Talking about: For the past week and a half or so, she’s been talking about when she gets bigger.  Constantly.  She asks about what it’s like to be an adult and lists all of the things she’s excited to do in the future.  So far, her main ones are: crossing the road by herself, having a job, walking in parking lots alone, driving a car, and going to university.  Oh, and having a baby.  There’s lots of talk about having a baby inside her belly right now.  Oy.

Reading: Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.  Up until recently, she wasn’t a huge Dr. Seuss fan.  I found that she enjoyed the first little bit of the story, but would move on before we’d finished the book.  Now, she’s really into longer books and more complex story lines.  She even ‘reads’ Green Eggs and Ham to me now!  The other book we’ve been reading on repeat is the slightly random Biblioburro.  She signed it out from the library, and though I  normally {sneakily} skip the page with the bandit holding the weapon, it does have a lovely message about giving and the joy of reading. 

Eating: Current favourites include asparagus, Babybel cheese, cantaloupe, wholewheat pasta (always pasta), tofu, breakfast banana splits, crackers of any sort, Trader Joe’s apple sauce squeezy pouches, these popsicles, and bagels with cream cheese.
