“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.” —Oscar Wilde
At preschool Sophie learned a new way of putting on her winter coat—it involves placing the coat open, on the floor, and then climbing into it. Of course, if she places the coat upside down on the floor, it ends up upside down on her—something she finds hilarious.
“When the bold branches
Bid farewell to rainbow leaves—
Welcome wool sweaters.” —B. Cybrill
We rarely let Sophie pick out something for herself at stores so we (hopefully) don’t have to someday deal with constant “I want that, I want that, I want that” while shopping. But she wanted (and needed) a new pair of sunglasses. So, while Andy was painting our living room, I took all three kids shopping. Oh, the choices! Sophie agonized over the red, glitter, heart-shaped pair, the purple butterfly pair and the pink flower pair.
The pink flower pair won. (We also left the store with two new headbands–so much for my never buying something she impulsively wants.)
The sunglasses, unfortunately, are already broken. (I suppose that’s to be expected when you spend a whopping $2.50 on toddler sunglasses.} Already she’s talking about another shopping trip. She keeps mentioning the red, glitter, heart-shaped pair.
I think I’m in trouble.
