Ava's Observations

Sometimes the cutest things come out of a 3 year old's mouth. The other day, I picked up her friend, Sam, on the way to preschool. They were chatting in the back, as 3 year olds do, about...ghosts. Ava was explaining to Sam that ghosts don't brush their teeth because they don't have hands to brush their teeth with...and they probably don't have teeth, either. So these are the thoughts going through her head when she looks at me pensively while sucking her two fingers.....

It was 46 degrees today. Heat wave! Things were melting, and it was raining. When I picked up Ava from preschool and was putting her in the car seat, she was looking at the windshield and asked, "Mommy, why are there polka dots on the window??" How poetic! Gotta love that kind of imagery....

Then there was the time last month, when I was putting together a photo montage for our 10th wedding anniversary, when she saw a picture of Mike and I on our wedding day. She immediately GASPED as if she was discovering a pot of gold, "MOMMY! LOOK! You are a princess, and Daddy is your prince!!"

Sounds like she's going to keep up with big sister. Imagination is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

Oh you are going to cherish these stories even more when she's older. Good documenting, Mom!
