Nora is only allowed to bring "soft" toys to daycare. Teddy bears, stuffed kitties, her favourite stuffy, a little brown dog named "Chocolate". She knows the rules, but, of course, like every 4yr old girl - she likes to try to challenge them.
A few days ago we were getting ready to leave and she was holding a new Barbie from Christmas when we had the most interesting conversation:
Nora: "Mommy, we can't bring Barbie to school."
Me: "Right, Nora - because she isn't soft."
Nora: "Yes, Mommy... because she is too tight."
