Linlee on a roll!

Linlee’s progress lately has been amazing. Rob and I have talked about how she seemed to have taken a year off somewhere between age two and three. (Isn’t that what kids do when they graduate from high school or college? She jumped the gun a bit!) I wish I knew why that happened. I was …

Imaginative Play

Linlee has become so much better at imaginative play lately. Finally I see her playing with toys, rather than just holding them in her hands. Yesterday she put her baby doll on her rocking horse and helped her go for a ride. So cute! She is very into dressing up in hats right now (and …

More change for Linlee…

The teacher’s assistant in Linlee’s class told me today that she has two more weeks before she leaves to be a student teacher in another classroom. Linlee is not crazy about this woman, but that’s only because she is in charge of behavior management. That means that she’s the one who helps Linlee sit (and …

“Bow off!”

Well, you all know how I’ve been dying for Linlee to start talking. I’m happy to report that her language has really been snowballing lately. We hear new words practically every day. So when Linlee was playing with her new fireman’s hat this morning and came up to me and said, “Bow off!” I was …

Yikes!

This morning while I was casually checking my favorite blogs on the computer, Linlee ran up to me with this strawberry and this knife… Ack! Apparently she’d finished her bowl of strawberries and rather than asking me for more, she pushed her chair up to the kitchen counter, put her empty bowl next to the …

Fire Safety at Preschool

I volunteered in Linlee’s class today so that I could observe the fire safety program (in other words, get pictures). I have to say, the firemen did a miserable job of teaching the children anything. They basically just let them climb on the fire truck. I was not impressed. Surprisingly, neither was Linlee. I thought …

White Bows

One day when we were in China picking up Linlee, I put a sweet, little white headband on her baby head. A man in an elevator pointed out to me that in China, a child (or maybe everyone, I don’t know) should only wear white on their head if they are in mourning. He suggested …

Men and Clothes

Why is it that men think you are torturing them beyond all reason when you ask them to wear a new piece of clothing? Really, what is that about? I discovered last week that both of Rob’s jeans (he only owns two pair) are torn and tattered. I tried explaining to him that jeans are …

A Slightly New Do

I took Linlee to get her bangs trimmed today. The stylist convinced me to start growing out the back half of Linlee’s bangs. Linlee’s hair grows straight forward over her eyes. When she was smaller, it would not fall to the sides of her head, so in frustration, one day I just trimmed everything that …

What to do on a nice day…

Oh yes, the swing pictures are back! Today was an unseasonably mild day, so after Linlee’s nap, we went out to the swing set.
