Today we gave Julia a carrot.
Now, it was a whole carrot, with the thinnest part snapped off, and she has no teeth.
Needless to say: she did not get very far.
But the joy on her face was radiant. A carrot! She had a carrot, and so did her sister! Ecstasy!
She was cranky and overtired, but by gosh, I had a peaceful dinner, courtesy one orange root vegetable.
She had a look of concentration, as she gummed the carrot, as if to say, "Now, how do you make this thing disappear? It's like magic!"
Oh, child. Wait till you have ice cream.
