Elsie calls crumbs "seeds." So far this week, we've cleaned up cheerio seeds, cracker seeds, cookie seeds, and waffle seeds.

Last week, we were about halfway home from dance class when Elsie asked from the backseat, "Mommy, are you sure this is the way home?"

She's really into taking care of Claira right now. A few days ago, I was holding Claira while she was fussing, and Elsie walked over to us, pulled Big Bird out of her pocket, and said, "Here you go, Claira. I was saving Big Bird in my pocket for you just in case you needed it."

Last night, we were getting ready for church. Elsie and Claira were sitting at my feet while I was brushing Elsie's hair. She told Claira, "I'm going to miss you when I go to class, Claira, but you'll be okay. Just stay with Mommy and Daddy and listen to what they say. They know what to talk about." I think she meant to say, "they know what they're talking about," but who knows. She cracks me up.

Too cute! I like that she calls crumbs seeds. And asking if you were going the right way home is so funny!

So cute! I always laugh when LK tries to tell me the way to go home. And, seeds... LOL! What a good big sis Elsie is.

The fact that Elsie carries around a spare Big Bird is just about the sweetest thing ever.

calling them "seeds" makes them more fun to clean up, right????
