Heidi & Autumn said...

Today Heidi found a caterpillar. I let her keep it and these are some of the things I overheard while Heidi & Autumn were playing with the caterpillar.

H: I have a pet now. I need to give it a name.
A: How about Shenny?
H: No. I need to pick the name.
A: Okay. Remember how we named it Shenny at the playground?
H: Oh. Yeah. Its name is Shenny.
A: Shenny. Like Jenny but with a "sh". Isn't that pretty?

A: Don't squeeze it.
H: It will get resurrected.

I was very impressed when before going to bed, Heidi decided to let Shenny go. She wanted to let her go because Shenny was scared of people. Now she wants to look for a bug that won't be scared of people. She even cried while getting into bed because she missed Shenny already.

    I love the "It will get resurrected" comment! Shannon's been going through this stage of being fascinated and simultaneously frightened by death. We've explained things to her and every now and then she pops out with a comment like that one. Its so fun seeing a child's interpretation of the things that we teach them.
