Brody had just gotten out of his blue swimming hole when I picked up the hose and asked him, "Do you want a Mr. Misty?" He nodded his cute little head and smiled a big yes even though he had no idea who or what he was going to get. I pressed the nozzle and misted him till he laughed out loud. He didn't want to say good-bye to our friend in the hose until he was soaked and covered in goosebumps.
These moments of spontaneous fun are what I love about babysitting my darling twenty-one month old grandson.
I am also so grateful to have the opportunity to watch Brody read stories I have read to him. (Strega Nona will come later).
He is beginning to talk. When he 'reads' he uses sounds, hand gestures and single words to tell himself the story. I love observing his brain remembering the story from the pictures.

All this talk about water is making me want to go get my water bottle. Stay cool! Stay hydrated!
