A conversation had between Ayla and Jord one night while I was trying to get her to go to bed.

AYLA: Options. (Jord and I look at each other thinking, did she just say options?)

JORD: What?

AYLA: Options dad. You have three options. (Jord and I snickering while she begins to hold fingers up.) One, you play with me. Two, you go to sleep. Three you play with toys.

JORD: K, i will go to sleep.

AYLA: No, no, no. Dad you have two options. One, you play with me and two you go to sleep.

JORD: Okay. I pick option two, go to bed.

AYLA: No, no, no. One option. You play with me.

Sounds like someone listens to their dad too much. Love it!

Adventures of Hammy

Ayla's preschool class has a pet hamster named Hammy. Each kid gets a turn to take Hammy home and then draw a picture of what they did with Hammy and put it in a book. Ayla has been wanting to take Hammy home for weeks now. Well on Tuesday it was finally her turn. She was so excited. All she did for two days was play with Hammy. I forgot to take pics of the pictures she drew for her book, but she did help me with one that we put on the fridge. They watched tv together for a little bit. They went to the park a couple of times. They took naps together. They even did a puppet show. And yes, the hamster is just a stuffed puppet. I would never take on a real pet hamster, especially with a 3-year-old. Anyway, here are the pics. Enjoy!
