Meg and I came across just such a situation last week as we both watched Molly pass by us on her way into the living room carrying a three legged stool.
Carrying a three legged stool!?
This should have given us pause. Unfortunately, it did not. Life in our cozy home is every bit as crazy as you might imagine. Megan often catches my eye over the fray and says with a grin, "Can you hear the circus music Mom?"
As circus music hummed softly in the background, it finally occurred to me to ask Meg to follow Molly and see where she was headed with the stool. "Come quick!" yelled Meg. Stopping only to grab the camera, I high-tailed it into the living room where I saw learning in action.
Dah da duddy ya da duh da da da. . .
(This was the only way I could write out the music that you should be hearing in your head right now.)
Can you hear the music?
Drum roll please!
Personally, I think she should focus her efforts on growing some hair.
