366 Challenge 3: Soup

Photobucket

I have had a very busy week, working from home is a great thing, but when you move house, it's not just your normal stuff that has to be reorganized, getting work organized and up and running is quite time-consuming, but we are getting there.

Anyway, the other day we had soup for lunch. I had the camera out, as J was doing quite a funny song and I was hoping to get a good shot of her doing so. But they were also eating at the same time and today I just realized that I had this photo.

J was eating tomato soup and since the whole family now is cutting carbs, I wanted her to have cream in her soup, but she refused. Then C *who has become quite a wiz at handling his 3year old sister* said: "J.., would you like pink soup?"
J nodded enthusiasticly to the prospect of having pink soup.
C: "Just pour in the cream and then mix it carefully and you will have pink soup!".
J poured in some cream and sat then and stirred and stirred. "Pink soup!!", she exclaimed and ate it all up.

Here she is "miskar", which is a swenglish word, she has made up. A mix between the english "mixing" and the swedish "vispar".

PS. We don't have a dining table yet, so we use our patio furniture. And no, my children usually don't wear helmets for lunch, but that particular day, I had the honour of being accompanied to lunch by two superheros...

I love your son's idea to spur her to eat the soup! Kids know kids. And I love the helmet at the table shot. Very cute...

Thank you, Julie. He knows how she thinks. :)

That's a fantastic photo to sum up your daughter! And I love how her brother knew how to get her to eat it - obviously on her wavelength!

I noticed the helmet right off and thought it was so cute - kids on the go!!

what a great shot. Love the blur of her hand stirring the soup.

She is so precious! And I love your son's brilliant enticement for her to add the cream. The photo wouldn't have been as charming without the bike helmet!
