|Lately she's taken to changing into her bathrobe and (plastic) heels when she gets home from|
school. She looks like a miniature sex worker. It's probably wrong that this cracks me up.
|Big kindergarten girls are old enough to go the movies. Obviously. |
And even keep their 3D glasses on. Not like babies. They have to stay home.
She's becoming interested in sounding out words and is still drawing a ton. I can't believe how far her drawing has come! As soon as we gets home she disappears to either play with her dollhouse (which features a large assortment of stuffed and fisher price animals as well as dolls) or to work on her art, which often involves a surprising amount of masking tape.
|Drawing by Calliope in late September (called "A Pagish"). She couldn't even do this in early September.|
Today there is no school and tomorrow is the last day, a half day, so she is skipping that and doing a week of local day camp with her best friend Eleanor instead. Despite loving her school friends Maya and Peyton, she's beyond thrilled to be with Eleanor -- her nanny-sharing friend for the first four years of her life -- again. Despite the fact that they fight and make up constantly.
|Same artist, exactly nine months later. Working carefully with ink and napkin.|
There's eyelashes! And pupils, hair ribbons, inner ears, paws with individual toes, whiskers...
I'm so proud and impressed by her.
