Is she trying to tell me something?

Mochahantas never ceases to amaze me. First of all she's a girl, a girlie girl. Almost 3 years ago, this not so girlie girl was a mama of 2 boys. Maybe it is the combination of these two things that makes her so expressive. What I love about her is that she can keep herself occupied for long periods of time. Thank goodness! It means I can get stuff done without her "assistance". However, when I don't hear the wheels of her cart as she goes "shopping" or the clank of her pots as she prepares dinner for Dora, I have to investigate. I usually trip into creations like this...

and this..



These pictures are the most recent. I've also found:

-water bottles lined up around the edge of my round kitchen table
-several sleeves of paper cups lined up from the kitchen to the den
-a fist full of toothbrushes lined up in the hallway window sill
-emptied bookshelf, books lined up end to end in another room

She also used video tapes (yeah we still have those) and cds (removed from their protective cases, thank you very much) and as I type, similarly shaped paint bottles. I used to get upset because it was one more thing I had to clean up. Now, I just marvel at the workings of this 2 year old mind. By the way, genius is not always at work, she still does things like this...

Giggling over your princess antics. It clearly shows she has the ability to keep herself entertained.

Hee hee. Either she's going to grow up to be an engineer or she's waiting for aliens. Either way, I love her!
