mickey mouse & "tic tac toad"

sophie will turn three 3 years old in a few weeks. amazing! my brain is definitely in birthday party mode. tonight while soph was in the bath i asked her what she wanted for her birthday. "mickey mouse," she replied. what color? "blue. i want to see him." this was a little weird to me because aside from a mickey mouse toy telephone she has, she is not familiar with mickey mouse at all. (unless someone has been talking with her about going to disney world???)

after bath time, we read bed-time stories and her latest favorite is actually a word book. something like "1000 words" and it has pictures of lots of different places/scenarios and the words and pictures involved. (i don't care to read this e-v-e-r-y single day because there is no plot or story, but she loves it and has learned lots of new words with it.) tonight she wanted to read the "birthday party" words... one of her favorites. after we finished i asked her what she wanted to do at her birthday party? "blow out candles," she said. then i asked what kind of games she like to play? "cards." cards, huh? "yep. cards and tic tac toad."

"tick tac toad?" sounds fun! :)
