Some random thoughts for your Thursday:
1. Cameras at day care are awesome. Yes, for the obvious peace-of-mind factor because you can check up on your little one throughout the day and see that they are happy and fed, but also for the entertainment factor. Watching finger-painting time with seven one year-olds is just plain fun. Paint is everywhere, smocks are flying off, and randomly a kid will bolt for another part of the room with two very paint-filled hands. Thank goodness for patient day care teachers. Watching it all unfold from my clean, quiet desk at work is more entertaining than a TV show.
2. Is anyone else gorging themselves on tomatoes this time of year? My husband's aunt and uncle live next door and they have the most amazing garden. And luckily for us, that means they have an amazing amount of produce that they are happy to share. In so many ways, they are pretty much the best neighbors we'll ever have. This is the result of one of our foraging trips the other night:
3. I love cherry tomatoes, but turns out that Amelia loves them just as much. Girlfriend and I ate almost a pound of them by ourselves one evening. I thought about cutting her off but figured tomato harvest time doesn't last long so she might as well get to enjoy it, too.
4. One of the cutest things in the world is watching Amelia "read" the food ads that come in the mail. She'll pick though them all, look through the pages, and then scatter them randomly around the floor. Adorable.
