When Kayla wakes in the morning, she always has lots to say. She usually spends a good 10 minutes telling me about all sorts of things. Read on for more. A couple of my favorite “sentences” from this morning were “Daddy work Andy car”–which means “Daddy went to work in Andy’s car.” (Aaron and his friend Andy ride to work together.) Then another one I really liked was “Abby choke money”–which means “Abigail can’t play with Kayla’s money because she could choke on it.” (Abigail is 14 months, and I babysit her every Thursday).
Kayla is also really into stories right now. Not just books, but stories. Daddy started this new trend over a week ago when he made up a story about a ladybug for Kayla. Whenever you tell it, she enthusiastically says “again!” So I made up one the other day, too. It’s about her opossum puppet, Pouch. Pouch wakes up one morning to find out it’s Sunday and that she gets to go to church. Kayla helps me fill in the words now: “When Pouch got to Baby Church, she saw all her friends. Then she went down the slide, played with balls, and colored. Then her teachers said it was time to sit on the mat. So Pouch obeyed and sat quietly on the mat. They sang songs about Jesus. Then the teachers taught to her from the Bible about Jesus, and then they prayed and had a snack. Then it was time to go home, so Pouch’s mommy and daddy came to pick her up. When she got home, she was very tired and went night night.” (The words in bold are ones Kayla fills in.)
Pouch, by the way, had a little episode falling into the potty this afternoon. Oops.
