Have been walking Ton to school recently, as P uses the babyMo stroller with the Ton-stand to pick her up in the evening. Usually she doesn't want to walk down the hill from the apartment. She starts by saying "I'm tired" but when that doesn't work she goes to the old stand-by: "It's dangerous with cars on the road. You better carry me."
Smart girl. So I carry her until we get to the flat back street, and then she walks, holding my hand. As her current fascination with bugs continues, she points out all the bugs on the ground and flying in the air, stopping to pick up the occasional piece of rubber or random detritus.
If I've forgotten her Calpis, we'll hit the AM/PM to stock up before heading up to school -- have discovered that if bribed with a cup of Calpis after lunch, she almost always finishes her bento.
