Two For One...
Little girl #2 is benefitting huge from all of the leftover trappings of little girl #1...things like clothes, and sneakers, toys, and books. Yep, books...and although we've tried reading to Mags before she never quite seemed interested at all...until today! Today we read Oliver Jeffers, "Lost and Found," and she was enthralled. She sat through six or seven readings of the book with Daddy, and then another later that evening with Mom. She's a big fan of the penguin, and of the boy receding off into the distance waving...'cause she gets to wave back.
It's the first book she's ever showed any interest in or patience with. It was a sweet, sweet deal, and I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I was grinning from ear to often un-utilized ear. It was that whole "first book" thing, but it helps that she's cute as cute gets.
It's going to be quite the unique social experiment, raising these to girls...they're going to be as different as night and day, but raised with the same stuff and perspectives. We won't employ all that much of the scientific method, but we'll take notes and sell them to science perhaps...or just write them here.
