We always have fun watching our kids eat something that surprises them (usually unpleasantly). At my mom’s birthday party, Kiley was emphatic that she wanted “that.” (Pointing at the squash.) So I gave her some, and her face was so funny! It was one of those moments you almost had to be there. She kept running her tongue over her teeth trying to get the squash off!
My sister was here visiting from her home in South Africa this summer, and she buys up presents for our kids in advance. She ran across a garage sale with a whole mess of porcelain dolls called Bride of the Year or something like that. So they were brides from different time periods. Each of the girls got one of them, and she was able to watch them open the presents via skype! Gotta love modern technology!
