Know Thyself

Nutmeg has become more self aware lately. Like this weekend, when I took both girls for a rare after-dinner park visit. Nutmeg wanted to ride in the big baby swing, which Pebbles had ridden previously. Nutmeg got in first as Pebbles ran toward the swing, shouting, "My whee! My whee!" (declaring ownership of things is Pebbles' newest thing)

So I managed to squeeze both skinny little butts into that swing. As I started to push, wishing I had my camera, Nutmeg observed: "This is cute."

She also told me this week that she is smart. So much for keeping that one a secret.

She's just steps away from saying, "Mommy, you should post that on your blog."

the other day my husband told my 2 year old she was nice, she replied "I'm not nice, I'm beautiful"

Apparently you can't be nice and beautiful at the same time.
