Yesterday, we lost Nora's penguin. We have a stunt-double penguin on hand at all times when this happens. I searched the house high and low, and I finally quit the good fight. So, she got her stunt-double.
Just moments ago, while I was working hard for a deadline, Nora came up here with both penguins in her arms exclaiming, "Two penguins!"
She obviously has a preference for the original penguin, and she's been making them hug and kiss. I explained to her that we have two so that we always have one if we lose one. I don't think she quite understood what I was saying, nor did she care—she was holding two penguins!
I also asked her where she found the other penguin, and the rat wouldn't tell me. I do wonder where she found him. It is fascinating.
She's still going strong with the potty! How cool is that? I just have to change diapers at nap time and bed time right now! Wheee!
