IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF RAISING CHILDREN, BE AWARE. THE TINY FINGERPRINTS THAT SHOW UP ON ALMOST EVERY NEWLY CLEANED SURFACE, THE TOYS SCATTERED AROUND THE HOUSE, THE PILES AND PILES OF LAUNDRY LYING AROUND TO BE TACKLED, WILL DISAPPEAR ALL TOO SOON. AND, YOU WILL, TO YOUR SURPRISE, MISS THEM PROFOUNDLY. THOMAS S. MONSON

Painting the Town RED!

I am trying to teach Nora her colors. She learned blue first, about a month ago. It must be her favorite color, becuase everything to her is "Blue". Last week we learned green, and sometimes if I ask her "What color?" It is first "Blue". Then I say, "No", she says, "Green". I was very proud that she learned those two colors as fast as she did. So I have been working on red. Not as easy! Everything is Blue... sometimes green! So today we cut into my people magazine, looking for red! We ate only RED popsicles. RED tomatoes, RED suckers, RED skittles, RED juice.

Me: "Nora, what color is mommies finger nails?"
Nora: "Blue"
Me: "NO"
Nora: "Green"
Me: "NO, Look, what color?"
Nora: "Blue"
Maybe more tomorrow!
