I went to Adrie's school for a treat and story. Who would have guessed her favorite book was one full of dino facts?! The kids gathered around the story chair and one boy groaned, "Please don't let it be a princess story." Much to his relief and the other kids' delight I pulled out the dinosaur book and started reading aloud. Then I found out why Adrie, who dreams of being the class clown, chose this particular book,
Over thousands of years the bones, teeth, footprints, and even poop....
cue roaring laughter from the whole class.
I tried again, ...and even poop..
Again, volcano of uncontrollable laughter.
We finally got through the rest of the info to find out even dino poop turned to rock, called fossils.
Adrie had a good rest of the day with a little after school party, which wasn't quite as funny. Adrie cried 5 different times.( She's saying it wasn't THAT many) I guess it was too much responsibility to be the birthday girl. We went out for ice cream, made some glitzy rings, and played games.
Adrie's a great kid. She was our earliest talker and she's been entertaining us with her observations ever since. From her baby journal, age 4:
Adrie asked me today, "Mom what percent pretty are you?"
Of course I replied, "100 %"
Then she said very proudly, "I'm infinity"
One more--same age.
"Mom, I know what a funeral is. It's when someone dies and you eat rolls."
Just when I was thinking that was pretty true, she said,
"Get it?" Funa-ROLL......!
Here are a couple favorite photos from her quieter years...
