Fancy Lucy

Lucy got the book "Fancy Nancy" for Christmas and we are really having fun with it. The little girl in it likes to use words like "stupendous, which is a fancy way to say great". Or "chauffeur, which a fancy way to say driver".

Well, lately Camille has really gotten sensitive about being referred to as a baby or anything babyish. Lucy called her a "toddler" today, causing Camille to pout and say "I'm not a tobbeler!"

Lucy handled it with such grace. She just reassured Camille that "toddler is just a fancy way of saying big girl." Camille was satisfied with that explanation - probably due to the book.

Fancy Nancy is a big hit in our household, too. Elizabeth keeps walking around the house saying, "Bonjour" and "Oui!" It's too funny!
