I announce to Bella that she’s going to visit her cousins and she squeals with delight. I’d never actually heard anyone squeal in delight before Bella, only read the phrase in books.

I’ve got two simple rules that Bella is learning about shoes: no shoes on the bed, no shoes on the couch. Whenever I see her sitting on the couch wearing shoes, I simply state the rule and she removes them. When she wants to get up on the bed, I ask her to remove her shoes first. But I was a little surprised today when she was sitting on her little step stool and I heard her saying, “Take shoes off. No shoes on the stool.”  That’s a new one on me.
