This is Teagan’s Leprechaun. She made it at day care the other day and couldn’t wait to show it to us – it still had a little wet glue at pick up. She tried telling Stu what it was, even though she couldn’t remember the word “leprechaun.” So much fun watching her brain try to make the connection.
She said: “I made uh… uh… uh… A person. It’s a person who gives presents next to a rainbow!” Oh, honey, do you mean a leprechaun?Yes! A leper-corn! Sweetie, it’s lepra-con. Leper is not quite the same thing.
I think he’s kinda cute. He’s already hanging on the wall.
She’s been a case of opposites lately. Super adorable one minute, pint-sized demon the next. And one that is bursting the seams of her clothes and shoes! But I don’t want to really think about all the clothes I need to try to mend, all the shoes we’re going to need to get her. How upset she made me when she said that we could simply buy her a new one. I have no idea where she got that.
Let’s leave with another cute moment, shall we?
On the way to day care the other day, she told Stu that when she starts Kindergarten, she wants a backpack. A very specific one. It’ needs to be a fuchsia backpack, and inside she wants a Jake and the Neverland Pirates lunchbox. In the lunchbox she wants sandwiches, fruit snacks and a drink. Oh, and of course Booty. She wants Pirate’s Booty.
She may be practicing her pirate signature…
