I kept Amelia this morning. One activity is a given – reading. She continues to enjoy Women Who Changed the World. I like it too but my emerging favorite is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (sp?)
I read some poems to her from my friend Jim Blackburn’s new book Hill Country Birds and Waters. He’s working to choose a few of the poems for reading aloud to some groups later this spring. I’m thinking his audiences will be adults. But I would say a toddler’s opinion is worth plenty. So I let Jim know Amelia’s clear favorite: “the White-eyed Vireo.”
One thing I discovered is not Amelia’s favorite: cooked carrots. This she made clear by dropping them on the floor. A little woman of firm opinions.
