The Help

31 Aug

Today I helped Bess play with trucks in her new seat and then helped mom marinate some yogurt-lemon-pepper chicken for tomorrow’s grill.

They say that one day a toddler’s vocabulary exploded and today might have been the day. A few if my newer-ish favorites: all gone, school bus, helicopter, back hoe, bulldozer, puzzle, bathroom, bedroom, outside, t-shirt, phone, yogurt, spoon, potty, pee pee, love you, thank you, welcome, night night, amen, and ROSA and YAN my two weekend visitors.

A New Bestie

28 Aug

Met a new friend on the playground. We watched mowers, threw a ball, and shoved leaves and sticks down a grate. All my mom could hear from her removed spot on the playground was toddler gibberish and high pitched giggles. I finally found someone I can really talk to.
