Just a few super things from the last few days...
On Sunday, I let the girls take their wallets to Walmart and pick out a Lego set using their birthday money. How I loved seeing them figuring out how much they each needed to pull from their stash. (And how much fun we all had playing, too!!!)
|The car they built by themselves...before we embarked on a much bigger challenge.|
On Sunday, we got caught in heavy rain leaving the grocery store. (It was just starting to sprinkle when we walked out, but by the time we got to the car, the rain was pouring down.) The girls were RUNNING and LAUGHING at having gotten caught in the rain…made me smile. And then it was so cute to hear A telling GG on the phone, “We got in a ginormous rain storm!” [“Ginormous” is the word of the week, apparently.] And then B added, “I’m SOAKED!” to which GG cackled.
The last couple of days, B has started wrapping the silverware before supper. I guess she picked this up from a restaurant, and she thinks it’s the greatest. It was so cute when she wanted to surprise Daddy the first night. She begged him to come to the table with his eyes closed.
I woke A up on Monday morning, B having gotten up a few minutes before her. I asked A where Sissy was, and she said, “She left. And I don’t know where she went.” She made it sound so serious!
We had a big rainstorm a couple of nights ago. It’s not unusual for A to wake up, but I didn’t hear anything from her. I asked her the next morning if she heard the storm. “No, I guess I was too busy sleeping,” she rationalized.
I told the girls on Monday night that their new cousin would be born soon. “Aunt T is in the hospital right now.” “NOW???” A questioned, incredulously. “But it’s BEDTIME!!! When will she sleep???” If only...
And…in the exciting conclusion of The Case of the Missing Jacket…I’m thankful to report it was located on Monday. We are all breathing a sigh of relief.
