Thursday three

Three fun facts for your Thursday: 

1. Reuben taught Ellis our real names, and he now refers to us as "Reuben" and "Erin" instead of Mom and Dad.  We are trying to discourage this.  

2.  Ellis recently has come to notice the differences in people's skin color.  He spent our morning walk today pointing at people and saying things like "brown auntie!"  When I ask him what color skin he has, he says white.  

3.  We have a book called The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle.  Whenever Ellis see the page pictured below, he shouts "Reuben!  Erin!"  I don't know whether to take it as an insult or as a compliment.  As a big fan of Eric Carle's art, I will claim the latter. 


 To his credit, it does have some uncanny resemblances!
