Matilda is obsessed with wearing socks on her hands the past few days. The house is always strewn with socks as she discards one pair somewhere (when she actually needs to use her fingers) and then wanders off to find a new pair in the sock basket. We visited my old staff at work today and the hypochondriac of the office immediately exclaimed, "What's wrong? Is she o.k. Why are her hands bandaged?" Any time I try to put shoes and socks on her I need two pairs as she'll insist on her hands being covered up too. The funniest part is witnessing how stubbornly she will attempt to accomplish a task requiring some finger dexterity without taking the "mitts" off.
