Liel is the queen of abandoning her toys on the floor wherever she happens to be when she decides she's done playing with them. A moment ago she dropped a magnetic animal on my bedroom floor, unhappy with the way the pieces insisted on fitting together. "I threw it", she announced crossly.
"Well, could you please pick it up?", I asked.
"What a surprise", I mumbled under my breath.
She heard me. "Mama, I surprised you!", she crowed, beaming with delight.
