The littles have found all the "workbooks" mixed in with the coloring books and have spontaneously started working on completing them. They're interested in numbers and letters now, so the workbooks have come onto their radar.
The other day, Dmitri was doing a "matching" game in one of them. On one side of the page, there was a picture of a bucket - the kind with the handle a little kid takes to the beach. On the other side were two pictures: an inflatable swim ring and a chicken.
"Bucket..." Dmitri said thoughtfully, frowning. "Goes with..."
I glanced over and saw the pictures he was considering: inflatable swim ring or chicken?
"Bucket goes with chicken!" He smiled proudly as he circled the hen.
I couldn't help but laugh.
I think we need to stop eating out at KFC. :D
