Two short blurbs from conversations with Elizabeth in the last couple days:
1. We're having dinner, which includes green beans. I get frozen beans and microwave them for a quick dinner side dish. Elizabeth loves them, and the previous day had 2 helpings. This particular night, she was also devouring them. But in the middle of eating one she stopped and said, quite emphatically:
"Mom, don't buy these beans ever again." Then, putting her hands up in exasperation, she continued, "They are too ... JUICY!"
As I recall, she proceeded to eat the rest of her beans.
2. You may have noticed that a new president was installed this week. (If you didn't, we have a new president; his name is Obama.) Elizabeth has been paying attention in her 4 year old way. We watched some of the inauguration together and told her the names of the people on camera.
Yesterday we were at the library. She walked past a rack of newspapers then came running over to me and said, "Mom! I just saw a paper with Michelle and that new president on it!"
She'll do really well on all of the first lady questions in future history exams.
