The girls saw their first magic show a couple of weeks ago. They were pretty tentative, but ultimately excited to watch. After the first trick, when the clown pulled a bird out of a balloon, Baby A had the funniest look on her face. “That’s strange,” she remarked. Hee hee!!!
Speaking of “tentative”, I caught the most precious precious of the girls while they watched the magic show. They were intensely focused on the show, while they absentmindedly held hands. I am so thankful I was able to sneak a picture to remember this sweet sight.
I was in the shower and Baby A was trying to tell me something. I couldn’t quite understand part of what she was saying, and I’d asked her to repeat herself a couple of times. Finally, in near-exasperation, she declared, “Nap, Mommy! N-A-P!” I had to crack up at her emphatic (yet nonchalant) spelling!
Baby A brought home a particular “prize” from school, the same type of prize she’d brought home once before. I wasn’t thrilled at the prospect, but I was trying to show my enthusiasm for what she’d earned. Baby B wasn’t quite so considerate. “Sissy, the last time you had that, Mommy said that was not appropriate for our house.” Hahaha!!! I do remember saying that…and it struck me as pretty funny that B did, too! My exact words, no less!
Baby A told me, “Mommy, before I was in your tummy, I was like a puzzle and God put together the pieces.” Sweet girl.
Over supper, we were talking about street performers. I reminded the girls we’d seen musicians and dancers in New Orleans last year, specifically some we saw right in front of us at Café du Monde. “Those were Mommy’s band cousins,” B said. Bwahahaha!!! That is one thing Hubby teases me about, being a band nerd, and I couldn’t believe B remembered that a year later!
So thankful for Super Stuff!!!
