I have a lot of blog-catching-up to do--a ton--but I keep putting it off because I want to add pictures, and all my pictures are on my phone. So I'll forge ahead with two cute anecdotes:
Yesterday, before Andrew got home, a contractor stopped by to look over the house, so I left the girls alone watching Bubble Guppies while I showed him around. Bubble Guppies is a very strange show that the girls inexplicably adore. Well, not inexplicably--all the characters are mermaids and there are always cute animals. It's like preschool cocaine. Needless to say, it's not scary, but in one particular episode, there's a scary-seeming seal that the mermaids think is going to eat a baby penguin. Both girls are terrified of this seal. This was the episode they were watching while I was with the contractor, and when I came downstairs I found them on the couch, hugging each other, comforting each other in their fear. It was so cute.
Today, I mentioned to Lucia that she and Greta would have a babysitter this summer once school ends (not news), and Lucia immediately grabbed Greta in a dramatic hug and shouted in joy, "Now we won't have to be apart!" Too funny.
