Zora and her friend.

Zora spent last night with one of her oldest friends. When she got home this morning, the other girl's Mom told me they'd passed protesters on the square and had a conversation about gay marriage, which the protesters were in favor of. So now both girls want to write letters to President Obama in favour of gay marriage. Because when they grow up, they want to marry each other. I'm looking forward to helping her write this one. :D

yes, she is still four.

i just had this surprising conversation with lilah.

lilah: "i have five meatballs!"
me: "you have five? i thought i gave you two?"
lilah: "yes. and then you will give me three and then i will have five."

since when does she do arithmetic?! i assume the credit goes to her preschool teachers. unless she and her big sister have been playing "school" more productively than i'd ever guessed!

Passover is clearly near....

I was on my computer when Lilah came in with a book and requested I read to her. We climbed onto my bed and once I finished the picture book, I decided instead of reading it again, I wanted to snuggle. We snuggled and cuddled for a bit, until I guess I went too far because Lilah decided she wanted to get off the bed and go. "Let my people go!" she declared. I do believe that is her first real joke.

my four year old and i were discussing the IU sticker on the back of the car in front of us when she informed me that indiana university is about going to school and playing basketball. i told her i didn't think it was possible to be more succinct. ;)

Lilah just called out to me: Ima, I like the number "L"!

distinctions are important.

lilah: *growly voice* rahr! rahr! *walks around frankenstein's monster style, stiff legs, arms out*
me: are you a scary monster?!
lilah: *growly voice* no! i'm just a peanut butter monster!
