I had Brynn explain her show and tell bag to me:
Talia loves our Beta fish
- For fun, Derrick and Caleb like to look at planes for sale. Caleb gets really into it and the rest of the night he can't think about anything else. In general, he comes up with thoughtful questions about how things work. With the plane he asked, "How does it take off?" Derrick answered his question literally. He said, "How will it not run into anything?" He thought that if you bought a plane it stayed at your house. He was worried about taking off from the street. He also asked about if the plane is sold, what would happen if someone else saw the pictures online and bought it. We had to explain they take the pictures down when someone buys it.
- We went out to eat at Chili's as a family. We were giving Talia pieces of french fries and I noticed the piece in her mouth was a little too big and I told Derrick to pull it out. When he tried to pull it out Talia got a death grip with her teeth.
- Brynn wasn't eating her dinner but she snuck a piece of candy under the table. Derrick later found the wrapper and asked her, "Who ate this?" Brynn looked him right in the eye and said, "I didn't eat it." Unlike Caleb, she has no conscience when it comes to lying to save her own skin. This often ends up being a very frustrating thing for Caleb.
- We had some flooding between floors. When we opened up the roof, we had the workers add insulation to prevent the problem of freezing pipes. When Caleb came home from school and saw pink insulation, he said, "It's pink. I hate pink." Good thing we won't be seeing it.
