My sweet Baby A was sick last Friday, and she was nothing short of devastated that she couldn’t go to school. Her spirits perked up, though, when we went downstairs to spend some time with the furry babies. She covered up on the couch, and Miki and Alex immediately jumped to her rescue. I snapped some pictures of them “taking care of her”. That made her smile for the first time all day…and she was so excited to share the picture with her sissy when she got home from school.
The girls won ribbons in the display board contest!!! Baby B got 2nd place (for kindergarten and 1st grade), and Baby A got 3rd place. They were so excited!!! And I thought it was so sweet that, from Day 1, they talked about how they would share their gift certificates ($10 and $5, respectively) at the book fair.
By Sunday, Baby A was feeling better, and Mother Nature was giving us a beautiful taste of spring. We had discussed going to the park, but we decided to play at home instead. The girls rode their bikes and scooters, and Mommy and Daddy broke out the Frisbee. It was such great fun to all be doing our thing!!!
Spring soccer season kicked off this week! I surprised the girls with that on Monday morning, and they were stoked. How great it was to see them running around on the field!
Baby A cracked us up with an extraordinary display of manners one night. At the table: “I’m sorry to ask this, but could I please have some more guacamole?” And when she played a wild card in UNO, she said, “I would like some green, if possible.” HA!!!
The girls went out to supper with Daddy on Thursday night. It’s sometimes hard to pull details from them, but Baby B came home and proclaimed, “We had the black and blue pizza. It was so delicious!” Her enthusiasm cracked me up!
And some previously-shared-on-FB-quotes that I couldn’t resist including here:
One of the kitties was eyeing the table tonight at supper. B said, "He thinks he wants to be human." And then she added, "He must not understand the things an average human has to go through." Ack! I didn't realize her seven years here as a human had been so tough so as to shape her views as such. Hahaha!
Baby B came up to me as I was getting this morning. She was holding two pictures, and she said, "Mommy, can you compare and contrast these?" I did not even know what to make of that, but it sure cracked me up out of the blue. HA!
So thankful for this Super Stuff!
