Things I did this month:
I can count by 10's up to 100
I can add 1+1, 2+2, 3+3, 4+4, 5+5
I'm taking a Hip Hop dance class and a clay class
I cut up a whole box of tampons and spread them all over Mommy's bathroom floor
My nanny, Kitty, moved away... I'll miss you terribly Kitty!!
I tried to have a sleepover at my friend Laurel's house... Mommy had to pick me up at 10:00... Poor Mommy!

Random Conversations:
Ari (while Mommy singing): Mommy, you're hurting my ears... just sing in your brain.
*    *    *

Mommy:  Your Grandpop Lonny is one of the smartest people I know.
Ari:  He is not... he's never taught me about bugs or anything... or like how long it takes for a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly... like one week or something.

*    *    *

Ari:  Mommy, I feel yanxious.

Kim (to Ari who is reading aloud to Laurel):  Ari thank you for helping to teach Laurel to read.
Ari: I don’t rememorize it though… I just sound out the words.

Ari:  Mommy, tell him "can I borrow that?"
Ari:  I forgot to tell him "what is his name?"
