Painting and Dress Up With Josie

Meema got me my own paints. We worked on painting together.  I did pictures in a painting book about trolls and then I made shapes on a piece of Meema's paper.

We are a team. I make a shape and Meema draws on it with black ink. Sometimes she adds more color but that's okay because I can share.

After that it was time to go to The Room and play dress up. I made this fancy hat and Meema told me that my great great great grandmother whose name was Alice was a milliner, which is a name for a lady who makes fancy hats. I think I am a milliner too.

   Also I have a cape for being a super hero. 

Then, of course, my kids wanted to play dress up too.

I gave Margot a crown and the purple boa.

I told her she could be the Queen of the Princesses.

Dolly wanted to be a dinosaur so I gave her a green dinosaur costume and and green basket to be her dinosaur cave. Also a dinosaur friend. Dolly is the King of the Dinosaurs.

After nap, there was a wonderful surprise. Grumpy had brought up the mail and there was a package for me Josie from my friend Sandy. It was a bunch of Big Bug stickers! They are squishy and they can peel off so Meema said I could put them on the glass door...and on the fireplace.. and on the chest. I was so excited! These stickers are The Best!

A note from Meema. Josie aske me about doing something or other and I told her we couldn't. She gave me a long hard look and said, "Let me rephrase that."  And she did.

I am delighted that Josie likes the bug stickers! And her "let me rephrase that" just slays me. How old is she again? Three going on 30? I adore this kid.

It's the effect of spending all her time with grownups who don't talk down to her.
