Five-and-three-quarter year old Stella, today, in front of our about-to-be-swallowed-by-ivy gutter garden:
On the back porch to check out the invasive ivy is about as far as we got today, except for a quick trip to the market.
Oliver kept himself entertained falling on his face over and over on our bed. It was absolutely adorable and hilarious. We played and read, and in the afternoon cuddled and watched Little House on the Prairie. Stella has seen it a few times and really enjoys it. Try as I might to stay awake to watch it with her, it usually puts me to sleep. A peaceful, if totally fruitless day.
