This morning Bianca and I watched our little caterpillars. Well, Tiger is actually not that little anymore and you can actually see them growing bigger every day. I guess that's what happens when you keep munching on leaves. The smallest of our caterpillars was so small when we got it, it had no visible stripes like the other bigger ones. Bianca looked at her (it is a girl according to Bianca) and said "she earned her stripes".
Both our girls love to read. Well Caitlyn can't actually read yet, but she loves looking at the pictures in the various books we have and she's always held the book the right way round, not upside-down like a lot of babies do.
Me: "Bianca what are you doing?"
Bianca: Grinning towards me.
Me: Noticing the book she was trying to hide, "you can't read now Bianca"
Bianca: "I can, I have a lamp"
Me: "Well, yes you can read with the lamp, but not now, it is too late, it is bed time"
And so she was a bit disappointed, but put the book back and switched off the little lamp and then she finally fell asleep. We promised her that she could go to bed a little bit earlier and then read to herself again tonight.
