Today the Goose made paper hats for herself and the Boy. Then she took construction paper and made a number book for the Flea (1-30). The Flea was thrilled to receive it, and the Goose has already begun making "lesson plans," e.g., "I think I'll do four pages a day with her. Today we did numbers 1-4," she said as she used a tape flag to mark the page with number 5, "and we should be done when she's 3-1/2." Flea turns 3 next week.
The Goose even had the foresight to avoid writing on the inside covers of the book, so it would look more like a real one.
I could just eat her up, she's so sweet. It almost makes up for her whiny excuse-making from the first half of the day. :-P
