before m1 got out of the car this morning, her last instruction for m2 was to not mess up the playroom, because she had cleaned it yesterday. do you think m2 listened? before school, m2 had asked little man to *draw* her a basketball court so her animals could play. he used painter's tape (i have plenty of that around here) and marked off free throw lines. after returning from the grocery store, m2 gathered all of her stuffed animals and placed them around the free throw line. she even gave one of them a ball to use. i was putting groceries away and overheard "let's go upward let's go" coming from upstairs. silly girl, she had put on m2's upward cheering uniform and was cheering for the basketball players, umm, stuffed animals. after the game the players had snack time and celebrated a birthday party.
