Josephine is learning about "real life" and "pretend". She doesn't understand why the people on TV cannot see and her her, when she can so clearly see and hear them. Tonight we had dinner at a restaurant. There was a man sitting at a table beside ours who caught Josephine's attention. She watched him eat for a while, then she whispered to me, "There's a person over there. Can he see me?" I told her that he can, and she could even say hi to him if she would like. They struck up a conversation, and she was satisfied. In her innocence, she wondered if people in her life were like the ones on TV, just there for us to watch and enjoy.
Later, at the shoe store, she intently watched the cashier ring up her purchase. She asked many questions. What are you doing? Why do you need to take that tag off? What is that sound from the cash register? The cashier was so sweet, and patiently answered all of her questions. Josephine turned to Daddy and said, "This is all very interesting to me!".
I don't have any cute pictures of my Jo to share with you today (forgot the camera), so I'll give you a peek at what's new in the shop:
