Oh no, I broke it.

Today Nadia came to me with a worried look almost like she was going to cry or cry out. Which is an expression that she has quite often at this age. (1) She had one of our remote controls and the back was off the back. I put it back together and she went on her way. Her face as she came to me with the broken control was so cute and I of course wish I would have had a camara.

I found it!

At my parent’s house they have a stereo in the living room and an extra set of speakers set up on the other side of the wall, in the family room. My mother turned on some Christmas music and Nadia went up to the TV to listen. The TV was not on so there was no noise coming from the speakers. She pounded the TV with her palm but realized that was not where the music was coming from. Nadia walked around a little and followed the music to the speaker to pat it. She has learned how to stop the music on a portable DVD player that is kept near the kitchen. It was so interesting watching her figure out where the music was coming from. Her inquisitive face is so fascinating to watch.
