No, I’m not writing about dwarfs, or a reality series on The Learning Channel. This is about the little people who live in my house, and the big world they like to explore.
This is how the little people start their day….
Maggie wakes up early, and leisurely finishes a bottle of milk while watching “Peep and the Big Wide World.” (A lovely cartoon on the Learning Channel about a chick named Peep and his two friends Chirp and Quack – and all their adventures.)
Within about 15 minutes, Maggie is busy playing.
Our friend Shelby decided she wanted to give her kitchen set to Maggie, since she’s older now. And Maggie just loves it. This is the deluxe of kitchens! The stove sizzles when you put the skillet on it – bubbles when you set down the pot. Both the oven and the microwave make noises and “ding!” Maggie likes to say, “It’s done!” when the microwave dings.
The morning is filled with breakfast and diaper changes for both girls.
Maggie’s most favorite thing in the whole wide universe and world (Charlie and Lola, anyone?) is playing outside.
Finally! Let’s go for a walk! Maggie enjoyed the swing, climbing on the picnic tables, and falling in the grass. She tripped over tree roots and stomped on leaves she found on the sidewalk to make them go crunch! She also collected little rocks along the way, and carried them in her tight little fists until we went back inside for grilled cheese sandwiches.
Bonus: This was Maggie last night after bathtime. I grabbed on the her binky with my teeth and pulled it out of her mouth.
