When not working out, she and Ethan have been teaching Madeleine how to do a fist bump, complete with a declaration of "Respect!" as the two fists meet. Here you can see Madeleine in training:
Finally, some quotes from the girls over the past few days:
JULIA: (waking Ethan up in the middle of the night) I had a bad dream!
ETHAN: What did you dream about?
JULIA: That there was a shark in my room.
ETHAN: Julia, do you know what would happen if a shark was in your room?
JULIA: (smiling nervously) Eat me?
MADELEINE: (pointing at my coffee mug) Atzat?
ME: That's my coffee. Can you say coffee?
JULIA: (after we made "snow castles" using sand buckets outside today) Okay, Mommy, now let's play a shovel game.
ME: Okay. How do you play a shovel game?
JULIA: (pushing the shovel as deep into the snow as possible) You just hide a shovel, and then you find it, and then you make a nice walky place!
Duh. I should have known that's how you play a shovel game.
