my teachers


this is what our little one said this morning when i tried to help her with something. she is our leader, the strategist, the tester, the fearless pistol.



this is how our older one spends her days, our dreamer, the experimenter, the one who consistently eats her ice cream cones from the bottom up while she gazes at the sky.

i'm not sure where i would be without either of them. they are my teachers.

some food for thought from my favorite ranter on how to play nicely in art and life.

I think my boys are going to turn out the same way: the older one is the dreamer, the younger one is the pistol. And tell Nina I ate my ice cream cones the same way.

oh my goodness. how wonderful to have both of these little people in the house.
sitting in the sink to read sounds just about right. I always loved to be in little nooks and crannies as a kid. comforting.

Wow! I haven't eaten an ice cream from the bottom up in years! Thanks for the reminder - I shall do it tomorrow :-) Love the sound of your 'teachers' - they sound just as quirky as mine.

it's interesting that siblings very often turn out so different.

You are so good at telling things with few words and "just a doodle", aimee.

Oh so precious - I love to see such unique personalities come out of our children. To me that's one of the greatest joys of parenthood :)

thank you all! and now i am going to bookmark this post to remind myself of the good things when they windex their sheets or decorate the bathroom walls with toothpaste....

Oh, they are utterly precious! Isn't it amazing how children teach us to open our hearts and our eyes. You, my dear, are an excellent student.

Artsygirl in the sink? HA! She's one of a kind! When she grows up, do you think she'll be drawn to those champagne-glass tubs in the Poconos?

That sounds like something I did as a kid.
