A couple months ago Diva was officially welcomed into toddlerhood/preschoolerhood by getting her first "real" owies. She ran out into the street making her poor pregnant mother (sound familiar mom??) run after her and she fell hard on both knees and acquired some pretty decent abrasions. Of course we captured it on film. She screamed for all of 5 seconds but stopped once she realized she was getting "ban-yays." She was SO proud of them. However to this day she still believes she has "owies" on her knees and will kiss them herself.
The other day we went to a nearby man-made lake in the middle of an apartment complex to see some ducks and coots. Coots are apparently very much hated by the residents because they poop everywhere. They migrate to this place in the spring and summer. The residents want to kill them but then you have issues with animal right activists. For now though, they serve a good entertainment purpose for a 2 year-old.
