I looked up a moment ago, after a few minutes of blog-reading. to discover that Ariel had left the room.

I walked into the kitchen and there she was, standing in the middle of the floor. She was holding one of her colored pencils, and she looked guilty.

"Hey, bud!" I said.

"I's lookin' for no-no's."

"Oh, really? What no-no's are you looking for?"

"Lookin' for no-no's." She turned away and raised her voice. "No-no's?! Where are you??!"

She walked over and opened a cupboard.


"Yeah, Ariel, that is a no-no. Let's shut it, okay?"

"It's a no-no!"

Turned out she was just looking for the pencil sharpener, because her pencil tip had broken off. I sharpened it for her, and she's back to coloring now. Little booger.
