Daddy's back was hurting this afternoon so the girls were doing some chiropractic training. This is Izzie, full of grins to be walking on her Dad's back!
Maddie didn't have any qualms at all with "get up on daddy's back and march."
I LOVE this stage of kids art! Izzie is slowly adding details like in the pink princess on the left, now has a dress on. The box thing around her head I wrongly assumed was a castle, but it is actually her hair (the crown is on top of the hair.) Then there is a yellow princess and a brown king. The past few days Maddie has lost her confidence in art saying she is "Math Girl" and Izzie is saying she's "Art Girl." I'm just giving her space and letting her find her way. They used those terms in a Super Hero voice, like it was their Super Hero Names.
It is so much fun to see them piecing things together. For instance, this afternoon I was trying to pry apart two of my homemade chicken nuggets that had frozen together. Maddie said, "You should use a knife mom!" So I got out a butter knife and wedged it between the nuggets. When they popped apart, I told her that was a good idea. She said, "Yes, I just closed my eyes and thought. Then I figured out a knife would help you so I told you that!" She was very proud of herself and I was proud that she was vocalizing her deductive reasoning.
