Teresa announced yesterday that she wanted to go visit President Obama. We haven't talked about "Our Leader" in ages. (She brought a photo of Barack and Michelle to preschool last January for "L" week.)

Today she decided Obama needed a snuggie to be cozy, a quilt to keep his legs warm in case his blanket is too short, and a life jacket for when he is fishing -- so when the large wave sweeps over the boat and sinks it, he will be OK. Oh and she wants to talk to him about the trees, too many are cut down. we need to make sure baby trees are planted and seeds are saved for in case people forget to plant trees, we can do it for them.

Where does this come from?

Teresa has upgraded to a new, bigger bike. I'm not sure we could keep up with her now if she really wanted to GO. Ms. Confident!

A chat with a dear friend about the kids...
Rebecca: Jamie remembers T as well. He remembers her informing him that she was a girl and had a vagina, and he was a boy and had a penis...

Teresa had her first swim lesson today. Cousin Allison and another young girl are her classmates. At the end of the lesson Teresa was the only one with dry hair. She did deign to blow a quick bubble, but clearly her comfort/confidence is not at the same level as the other girls. Teresa is excited for more lessons tomorrow and continues to tell me that she will jump off the diving board and swim swim swim very fast. I kindly noted that she would need to get her face and head wet if she would accomplish that... we'll see!

The age of the past couple weeks:
Cut her own hair
Tore a library book to pieces (I liked the sound she says)
Emptied complete rolls of TP into both toilets
Threw rocks at a friend's home (I looove throwing rocks)

Time to lock up everything? or just her?

And real cartwheels! straight arms, no head on ground, all the way over real cartwheels!
Teresa's first haircut... by Teresa. Oh, she's had a few haircuts from Mama, but I guess my job isn't sufficient. Today for "quiet time" Teresa grabbed scissors from the office and proceeded to trim her locks, mostly off the top, leaving her with a pixie/crewcut.

Ah well. Another milestone checked off!
