It seems that SS is enjoying our morning walks. She knows when we are getting close to her beloved ducks and happily states "duck, duck." This morning, I dressed her in a red shirt and beige shorts. SS pointed at her shirt, said "red," then made the sign for down. I placed her on the floor, and after saying red twice, she picked up her red and white checkered hat. Cool, she is making sense of what matches. SS then walked to her closet and said "shoe." She grabbed her duck slippers and proudly showed them to me.
Duck slippers? Those are for the house and the pool. SS would not budge, and clutched the slippers to her chest. Oh, what the heck, she is only two, why stagnate her creativity. SS has a long life ahead of her, where people are going to try to make her fit into an all size fits all schema. So duck slippers it is, no matter how many weird looks her Mama gets.
