Katrina got over a quickly escalating bath tantrum tonight when I showed her a little bath gel thing in the shape of a purple crayon. She liked it so much that she delayed the tantrum until it came time to get out and abandon the soapy implement, at which point she tried to bite me.
She was very funny pretending to draw in the bath with the faulty gel dispenser. "I want to color the SQUARES -- Mommy!" (tile squares on the wall). She often punctuates a sentence with a name. "It's PUH-TLE! (purple).
She scribbled a bit, then paused to admire her imaginary work. "Wow -- that's BOOH-tih-full!!" Yes, you certainly are.
