This is what Hayley does when no friends can play: Creates a stakeout.
So she doesn't miss it if any of them come home, or are suddenly able to play.
She decided to dress up as a "green librarian" (whatever that is) for St. Patrick's Day. And she picked this book to read to us since it was about a garden and had a lot of green in it.
I thought we needed some fancy dessert for St. Patty's, complete with rainbows and shamrocks.
And a surprise inside!
Hayley was excited to see the (girl?) Easter Bunny. Jackson was... indifferent. (But not crying, so that's improvement.) I got in trouble for taking a picture with my own camera. Oh well.
Jackson was telling me he was a walrus.
By the time I got the video going, he had moved on to other imaginary play.
And last but not least, Hayley just finished her first chapter book, Junie B. Jones: Monkey Business.
Just some background: Junie B.'s grandma tells her that her new little brother is the "cutest little monkey she's ever seen" and Junie B. takes it very literally, and tells all her school friends she has a "real, alive monkey" for a little brother.
I love listening to this girl read. Her expression and the way that she thinks about what she reads is awesome!
