We Call her Banana

Since she was tiny (maybe even in utero) we've called Anna "Banana"....

The other day I was coming inside and Anna asked if she could help with lunch. I asked her to help me get the plates for everyone. Then I quickly clarified, "just get the picnic plates for the kids". I helped the two little ones with their shoes and came strolling into the kitchen....

And there is Anna on top of the counter getting plates for everyone!! This was totally her doing..... the "kids picnic plates" are in a cupboard on her level so I was NOT asking her to climb. Anyway, she's a thinker and now a climber! And it shows her willingness to attempt to please us!

BTW... I always remember climbing on counters as a kid....I've just always been short!!
