Grace arrived yesterday – the human three foot version. After being dropped off, it was the usual “I’ve-been-dumped” scowl from her perch in the “cow seat” (named for the car seat’s cow-like fabric pattern). But a trip to the “big kid’s school yard” at Oak Knoll School and mastery of the “big slide” – even if it was the littlest one – produced an immediate change in attitude. This morning it was a trip to the Farmer’s market, where the carrots she picked out never left her hand, and a stop at another park before the rain halted morning playtime. The Redwood tree building blocks are also proving to be a big hit this visit. (Build ’em up and mow ’em down.) And she’s still happy to sit for a story – and likes Go Dog Go as much as her father did.
