Today when I was getting ready to exercise, I put on socks and shoes. Avery watched and said, "momma, where are my socks and shoes? I need them to exercise." We could go no further until they were on and secure. As I tied hers, she said, "momma, make sure yours are tied too."
Then we turned on the fitness channel. They were doing a step aerobic thing. Avery started jumping around. I said, "I wish we had a stepper so we could do this one."
Mid-jump, Avery tossed a, "next time we go to the store, we can get one, okay?" over her shoulder.
Since it looked like a really good workout, I tried to do it without a stepper. Turns out the leader started doing stuff that you can't do without one, so I stopped. Avery said, "momma, keep going."
I said, "we can't do this one."
She said, "yes you can momma, you can do it!"
My little encourager.
Also, you can see the latest of the misfit pictures. My mom sent another box of hand-me-downs from her friend, and as we went through them, Avery kept putting on the clothes she liked a lot. Her final choice: Barbie nightgown and fuzzy frog hat.
Her latest drawings include lots of circles, all sizes and 'shapes' (even though they are all circles...) Before this, it was just lots of straight lines all in a row. I tried to capture a picture, and you can barely see all the different colors of circles on her chalkboard. After she draws one picture, she erases it and says, "Let's draw another pretty picture."
Surprisingly enough, even though that picture also includes an array of circles, they do look different.
