She's an interesting child...

Bug was busy with paper, tape and markers yesterday. She asked for a bit of help on this one. She claims that it's a C3PO costume. Who am I to argue?

The boot is grand. (she only made one) She was busy for over 2 hours with paper and tape. It was amazing.

She was playing with her stuffed lizard (Liz) and informed me that Liz was thirsty. She then lifted her shirt and took care of the problem.

Imperial Storm Trooper

This morning Bug vanished for a bit and came back looking like this.

She said "I"m an Imperial Storm Trooper". Obviously. She's got her knight helmet on her head, a large, black kneepad strapped around her waist and her pink rubber rain boots. What ELSE could she be? Oh, and the giant cardboard tube? Yes, it's a gun. However, she pointed to the side and said "See the title? It says 'heart gun'. It shoots love at you."
I love this kid.

Bug has discovered this wood & plastic Brio building set that I picked up, used, a couple of years ago. She and her daddy have been building "droids". (she's got a serious Star Wars addiction going right now). She spent about 3 HOURS building them tonight. She'd bring each one in to show me. I should have taken more pics, but only got this one.(his black arms are hard to see, but they're there) I don't know what's up with her hair...weird lighting combined with needing a shampoo, I think.

While she was playing on our bed with her stuffed animals, I heard her say this:

He's jumping on the bed.
No jumping on the bed, I said....just like Mom.

It's good to know that she HEARS it, even if she doesn't DO it. Right?

A fun day!

We went to the Celebration of MN Children's Authors & Illustrators. Always a fun time. Bug's favorite, (next to Uncle Todd) David La Rochelle, was there. We got to hear him read his new book. We loved it so much that we bought a copy. While he was signing it, Bug said "When he's done writing, I'm going to give him a big hug!" She did.

Bug was thrilled that the balloon man was there again. It was a long wait for this balloon alien...then we got to do it again, later, after this one popped.

The new math?

Bug is enjoying reading and math. She's really got excited when she learned how to add. She made a drawing for her daddy. She told me it was a robot-bird. When she wrote that on the paper it came out "roobot+brd".
Last night Bug was talking with her daddy and she told him "kisses plus hugs equals love". How sweet is that?!
