Kks talks up a storm these days. Her expressive language gains complexity each day, offering her observations and interpretations of the world. I have longed to learn more about what goes on in her mind--about what thing occupy her thoughts. For so long, we had little if any idea. Even more exciting, kks tells us in simple terms what happened in the past tense. The kids work on this in school. We work on this with things recently spoken--we want to know, "what happened?" Kks' daycare provider yesterday asked "what did you have for lunch?" Kks answered: "Chips. Juice. Ice Cream (she forgot the turkey sandwich, but 3 out of 4 causes jubilation in this household)."
