Gregorie argued a little bit but not much because she doesn't really "believe" either. So Alex continued, "Besides, no man can go down a chimney. Not even a, a... what are they called that clean the chimneys? Oh, chimney sweeps. Not even a chimney sweep can go down a chimney. The chimney sweep just uses a long broom to clean the chimney. That's why he's called a chimney SWEEP! Broom, sweep -- get it?"
Yesterday I spent 9 hours pulling the carpet out of the living room/dining area. Early in the day I cautioned both girls to be careful around the edges where the tack board was. I explained to them that it is full of pointy things like a cactus and could hurt them. Alex said, "I know why it's called 'tack board'! Because it could atTACK you!"
Today it is snowing like mad outside. We all ran around and threw snowballs until we got too cold/wet (our winter gear is down south, hmm...). Before coming in though Alex had to drop and make one, for all you who saw her tropical snow angels while you were all buried in snow!
