Yesterday afternoon, Greta went poo poo on the floor in the front room, and when I went in, she looked up at me with kind of a bewildered expression and said "Poo poo."
Isn't that great?! Anja and I tried our luck at having her use the potty, but nothing happened. Still! It's kind of fun! I really like toddlers. A lot. And I'm glad that Greta is becoming more and more of one because it's extra fun to be able to communicate with her like she's a normal person.
One clue that she is becoming less of a baby is that she gets to make choices. On Sunday night she chose animal jammies for bed over pink rainbow jammies. Poor Anja doesn't appreciate Greta's growing up as much as I do... she totally freaked out because SHE wanted Greta to wear the rainbows. She cried and cried and cried and I tried to convince Greta to wear the rainbows, but it in the end, I told Anja that she gets to choose her own jammies and Greta gets to choose HER own, and that maybe she would choose the rainbows the next night. (She did, but of course by then Anja didn't care.)
Anyway... since those storms moved through the other day we have had cool weather. Today I am able to wear my fabulous green sweater with the buttons sewn on. Love it!
I also realized yesterday that I didn't plant any zucchini in my garden. Hmmm.... I'm not sure how I'll survive the summer without zucchini. We still have one more garden box to bring over from the neighbor's house though, so maybe if I can find some plants I'll buy a couple.
