One of the best things about going away for a long time is coming home and feeling like you have a whole bunch of new toys! (For Elysse, not me!) The one she has spent the most time with is the Doodle thing - you know, the one with the magnetic pen. Here is a picture she just drew:
elysse: "This is silly me!"
me: "And what's that on the other side?"
elysse: "That's Chanelle growing up."
Are there any insights to be gleaned from this regarding how Elysse feels about Chanelle growing up?? Probably not, but it's kind of funny.
