So THAT'S Why Kids Shouldn't Play with Scissors

(Please don't judge. Or do. Whatever.)

On Sophie's debut day of wearing her new skirt, she found a pair of scissors on the desk in the office. Obviously the skirt needed some editing. And the shirt. And obviously this girl needs better supervision.

The Whole Banana

Sophie's new love: The WHOLE Banana.

Not banana sections.

Those are for babies.

p.s. has anyone else ever realized that a banana splits by itself into 3 sections lengthwise? Awesome.
