Lots of super stuff this week!
1) Upon entering a public bathroom, I reminded my A not to touch anything she didn’t have to. She paused, and then commented, “I can scratch myself because myself is clean.” Thank goodness it was a one-seater…I just cackled!
2) I never get tired of hearing the girls say so emphatically, “Mommy, you make THE BEST [fill in the blank]”. Like when we ate breakfast out on Sunday, the girls got French toast. “Yum! This is good French toast!” But that was immediately followed by, “Mommy, you make THE BEST French toast!” as if they don’t want to offend me. HA!
3) I love to see my babies girls running and skipping. We’ve spent plenty of time at the park, in the neighborhood, and in the yard lately. Baby A, in particular, loves to hold my hand while we skip together. It won’t be long before she’s skipping way ahead of me, though…she’s FAST!
4) One morning, Baby A had been working really hard on an art project. She came to show it to me, and I told her how neat it was (and genuinely it was pretty cool!). I bent down to give her a kiss, and she whispered, "I'm proud of myself, Mommy."
5) I had to laugh when I heard the girls’ excitement one afternoon. B exclaimed, “Mommy! Daddy is shaving his face!” And A piped in, “Yay, Daddy! Good job!” Hee hee!
6) On Tuesday we had a play date at M&C’s house. The girls were SO excited to learn we were going over to play with M&C…AND for them to see Little Baby A. My A could not get enough hugs in with M&C…too sweet!
7) And my A&B are still SO taken with Little Baby A, now seven weeks old. At one point she was in her bouncy seat, and my girls sat beside her and sang songs. They are in love!
8) On Tuesday afternoon the girls were so surprised to get three letters!!! One was a thank-you card from a birthday party, and then they each got a note from Miss Demara and their very own picture of Little Baby A. They were so incredibly proud!
9) The girls absolutely crack me up, how serious they can be. They will go to great lengths to explain the simplest of things. I could hardly keep a straight face this morning as A was telling me about something with a very prevalent milk mustache.
10) Overheard: "Sissy, you're not supposed to have a smile on your face when you're doing something not-nice." Hahaha! Do I really even want to know???
11) We came across this super-cool cardboard stable on clearance at the craft store last week. The girls had a great time coloring it, and they’ve played with it every day since. I know it won’t last forever, but it’s fun while it’s still standing!
12) The girls got an unexpected present this week from some friends who dropped by, dry erase markers and a dry erase book and board. I thought they already had every art supply known to man…but this definitely completes their collection. It’s been hard to tear them away from drawing over the past couple of days, and I love it!
