To completely change the subject, I had to share this pic of Smilosaurus. I came from a particularly trying day at the office last week and this is what greeted me. How can you not giggle at that?
In our shared dining room/sewing room/home office I keep a little basket that holds selvages and scraps until it is full and I sort them. The girls love to go in a play with them, usually with The Monster practicing her knot tying. Well this day it turns out that the girls and our lovely nanny were all sporting bands of selvages at one point during the day, but Smilosaurus would not take hers off. She wore it from naptime to bedtime. My little Denyse Schmidt Ninja.
