1. My two girlikins, after I had done the bedtime ritual with them this evening, as I was leaving the room, each I called out “I love you very much daddy!”, and then “I love you very much daddy!”, one after the other (one after the other). That went well because I was present, and they love me.
2. Today girl number 2 couldn’t climb onto the trampoline, so she pushed a chair over near it. But she arranged the chair in such a way that she had to stand on the seat part, and then climb up the back of the chair, and then lean way over to get to the trampoline, which was still about 18 inches away. She got her head and shoulders on, lost the chair, couldn’t pull herself up, gave several little kicks with her little legs to try to propel herself forward, then gave up and then lowered herself to the ground. So she went back to try again. Second time she did it! Megan and I were unbeknownst to her watching with great interest and merriment. When she made it we gave each our signature high five and laughed saying “That girl is *so* determined”. That went well because C rocks, and I was present.
3. I managed to download all the photos from Megsie’s cell phone to our laptop. that went well because I spent about an hour getting that software installed a couple months ago, and I remembered to do it for her today again.
