I don't know a lot about how smart kids are, and it's very possible that I am just biased because I'm related to the little munchkin, but I think Miranda is quite intelligent for a 4 year old. She is extremely attentive to what goes on around her and I'm always impressed with the ideas she comes up with. Today she gave me a whistle that came with an icecream she had eaten so I could use it to call in Jacobim if he was too far away to hear me calling. She also said that when he does come I should give him a treat. We tried it during the picnic and it worked like a charm. (I used to train him with a whistle so it was no surprise to me, but Miranda didn't know that.) She later gave me a second one that I could put in a different jacket in case I forgot the first one at home.
An abundance of photos after the jump.
I personally prefer to take the first swim of the year when the ice is gone, but to each their own.
She got a bit wet, hence her pained expression. Dad's expression remains a mystery.
This is her drawing a letter from the registration number of the car next to ours. I think it was J.
Asleep in the car as we got back home.
