Taylor and Tyler

O.k., so every Monday morning I get to take Taylor (our cutest neighbor) and Tyler to their preschool and we have some great conversations! We've discussed things like princesses and their modesty or lack of, Halloween and Taylor not getting dressed up to go trick-or-treating this year because she was going to Disneyland, the weather, debates about whether the little cockroach in the movie Enchanted that gets eaten at the end of the song is really a cockroach or a crab, Spiderman (of course), scribbling as opposed to coloring, and many other funny things all of which I can't remember at the moment. The other morning Taylor had made cookies for the class and after we got started she had a little conversation with Tyler and here's how it went:

Tay: Tyler do you like jam cookies?

Ty: No.

Tay: So are you saying you don't want a cookie at class?

Ty: No, I only like chocolate chip cookies... my mom makes them.

Tay: Oh, o.k. later today I'll bring over some cookies with chocolate on them and green sprinkles on top and I'll bring Mackenzie and Sydney some too.

Ty: No I only like chocolate chip cookies.

Me: Tyler you don't want cookies with chocolate on top... just chocolate chips in them?

Ty: Yes.

Me: Even with green sprinkles on top?

Tay: I won't put green sprinkles on, I have pink and blue too.

It went on a little farther, but that was the best part of the whole cookie conversation. It's so much fun to listen to what kids have to say, it always makes me giggle!

Thanks for laying it out there so I could enjoy your morning car conversations too! :) Our post-preschool car-talk isn't as funny. I know that Taylor adores Tyler and I have enjoyed watching their friendship grow. He is such a sweetie and is so kind to everyone. You are such a good momma to him!

Hey girl! I was trying to email you but couldnt find your address.

I wanted to let you know that I am going to be in Bothell/Woodinville on Feb 20-21st doing custom, indoor baby/child photo shoots in this awesome 2 million dollar house.

I was wondering if you would pass along my ad to anyone you know who might be interested?? I'm trying to put the word out to everyone so I can get Friday and Saturday booked up. Here's my Craigslist ad with all the details -

Or my photo blog has details and photo samples -

Thanks so much!! Hope you guys are doing good -- Lizzy

It's good to know what you know in specifics--especially about cookies. So glad you're keeping track of these gems!
