Patrick told Matt [one of the teachers] that he was poopy this morning so that he would change him. When Matt checked Patrick, he wasn't poopy. Patrick just laughed, then proceeded to check Matt to see if **he** was poopy! It was funny and very unexpected!
And yesterday. (The context: The toddlers got to do “a day at the beach” — they filled a large container with blue sand and had little plastic starfish to play with.)
Patrick loved running his fingers through the sand during our sensory table activity. He was so serious at first, but as soon as he saw me pull out the camera, he kept yelling, "CHEESE! CHEESE!" and holding up various sea animals to show me.
