This morning she asked to go play outside in the snow after breakfast. She knocked on the patio door, while holding a big lump of snow and asked, "Mama, will you take a picture of me holding this snow." Of course.
Later, I was snipping some fern leaves off one of our house plants. She wanted to help but I didn't want to take the plant down off the hook in the ceiling to bring it down to her level and I couldn't figure out how to get her high enough so she could snip. She'll just have to settle for holding the leaves I snip off, I thought. Turns out, that was fine because as she held those leaves, she examined them closely and got a brilliant idea.
