Riddle Me This

Today at dinner, Chase was working on a puzzle - the one my dad made for her that has a picture of us eating raspberries in his backyard. She LOVES it. She can do it all by herself. It's wild.

So anyway, we took it apart (again) and she took the corner piece and lined it up, and then twisted it one rotation, and looked up at Hubs with a devilish grin. He said, "nope, not that way, try again." And so she turned it another rotation (same direction) and looked at him again, with a twinkle in her eye. "Nope, try again," said Hubs. And she did it again - and for those keeping track, that means that the next time she turned it, it would line up properly. But instead, she turned it back the other way - giving Hubs a cheeky grin.

More Read Book Peas

Today in Chase's room we were reading books. Actually, I was planning to read three books to Chase (we read a series of about six books three times per day). Instead, she proceeded to stack more and more books onto her lap, saying "more read book peas," after each one. After she stacked about 15 books on her lap, she realized she couldn't get up, so she looked at me and said, "hep peas mama."

Me Home

Today we were working on Chase's alphabet puzzle. I picked up the letter "H," which covers a picture of a house. I said, "H" for house. And Chase looked up at me and said, "Me Home," and gestured at her room, her eyes wide with excitement. I almost fell over.
