We had milkshakes for breakfast, as one does occasionally. A little ice cream, some greek yogurt, milk, and frozen raspberries, all blended smooth. Mm!

It was so warm on Tuesday that things were melting like mad. Guppy asked to wear her sleeper instead of getting dressed, and then also wanted to go outside without her coat or hat. "I need cold hair," she explained. "I need mittens and boots, but no hat!"

We didn't stay outside long, but she found two sticks and had a grand time.

Back at our house:

Having told Guppy not to rip the cover off the magazine, she assures me, "I want to rip it!"

"You can't rip it." Firm Mom voice. That will do the trick.

Guppy: "I'm going upstairs to rip it."

"No you're not." Even firmer Mom voice.

And she didn't. She shut herself in the bathroom and ripped the cover off while I was visiting some Utopian fantasy where she actually doesn't do what I tell her not to do.
