Sanaa actually napped today. Woohoo! Again, I didn't do anything different, so I guess we'll just see how she continues to do. At least I got a break today.
One of Sanaa's favorite things to do (aside from watching Curious George, which she loves) is drawing with chalk outside. Every time she goes outside she has to have her bucket of chalk with her. So, if you happen to visit our house (and it hasn't rained) there's a good chance that you'll see her handiwork on everything outside. I decided that we'd only have one rule when it comes to drawing outside and that is anything is fair game. I feel so bad constantly telling her "no, don't draw on the floor," "no, don't draw on the wall," "no don't draw on . . . ., " that I figured being outside would be the one place she wouldn't hear me say no. So, yes, you'll find chalk on our fence, on the window screens, on the patio furniture, on the box containing our hose, on the potted plants, and even the side of our house. But I don't care. It makes our backyard much more colorful.
Tomorrow it's suppose to rain, so unfortunately all of her handiwork will probably be washed away, but at least she'll have a blank slate once the sun comes back out!
