Experiments in Pouring

Mabel became engrossed Saturday night (when I came over to babysit) in the self-imposed task of distributing water among three different-sized containers.

She devised several pouring experiments and put each one through many trials.

Bath time is a single small component in the large ritual of bedtime. Later  during the traditional rocking-and-reading stage  we went three times through a new book (Valentine present from parents) about a little girl who takes on the enormous and role-reversing job of putting her mother to bed.
