Animal in trouble April 29, 2009

Posted by Merrilee in Family.

Karydis came running out of the bathroom last night to inform me of two things. “The water is too hot, and there’s an animal in trouble.”  On investigation, I discovered that indeed, the water was too hot (bad mommy!) and there was an animal in trouble. Specifically, a submerged and very dead spider. I didn’t even see it at first because it was obscured by Mr. Bubble and the flotilla of ducks and foam letters.

I fished it out and put it on a piece of toilet paper, hoping he would revive. Karydis speculated that” she” must have “crossed from there,” (pointing at the window).  When she started trying to wake up the spider, I told her that she would sleep more comfortably outside. Karydis lost all interest in her bath shortly after this, lobbying to visit the spider outside. I finally persuaded her that the spider needed the rest (in peace). Shortly after this, there was a small meltdown over the need for more Mr. Bubble, and she moved on.

I am constantly amazed at her ability to string concepts together, but I guess that’s what language is about.
