gooey wooey

for some fun this afternoon the girls were playing on oma and opa's balcony with some water in a little tub. i made some little boats from newspaper for them to play with in the water, which they crumpled and sank immediately. the soggy newspaper was dubbed gooey-wooey, and nina sang a long song about gooey-wooey, adding ever more newspaper. it was a mess, but they were having fun. nina was elbow deep in her gooey-wooey and said:

nina: it just doesn't get any better than this. (pause) can i have some more newspaper?
me: sure (hands nina more newspaper)
nina: this is even better.

what a funny kid. i can't believe she turns 4 tomorrow!!!!!!!!

in other news, i am wearing one of nick's shirts right now. maggie was talking to me, then started playing with the collar and said, "papa shirt." her language is really exploding.
