We have quite the little list maker: creating lists for the groceries and lists of foods she will eat for breakfast (suggested strongly by me to avoid early morning conflict) and even a somewhat bizarre list the other day of the fillings in my mouth. For her, it's all about the square box for the check mark after the word. And she takes her check marks very seriously. Case in point is that she got a graphing notebook for Christmas just to practice her check marks.
As she waited for her friends to arrive to the recent Chinese New Year party, she made a list of each of their names and checked each one off when he or she arrived. I snapped this photo of her waiting on the front porch, poised and ready to check away.
As always, I'm a sucker for a photo of her braids. And, as a fellow lover of lists, I can't help but be proud.
