Bundled up like a snowman
one very chilly afternoon.
A bit of history on this edition of Tiny Talk Tuesday: Occasionally Susannah will ask to wear a hair clip, barrette, etc. that requires much more hair than she has, or she'll want to put something in Sylvia's hair that needs more hair than Sylvia has. My answer to those kind of requests (along with earrings, makeup, deodorant, etc.) is "when you have few (or several) more birthdays", she will have more hair, be old enough, etc.
Today we were picking up the floor so I could sweep. One of the items was a comb of Daniel's and I asked her to take it to the bathroom drawer.
Her observation was as follows:
"This is Papa's (Daniel's dad) comb." (She often thinks that the short "man" combs are Papa's... I guess she has seen Papa's combs at their house?)
"This is Daddy's comb."
"Daddy need-a have a foo more bir-days, den he have more hair to use da comb."
If you know my husband, you'll know that he's just about slick bald on top. I don't think a "foo more bir-days" is gonna give him more need for a comb!!
