4th – Gave Lydia a bandaid the other day for her cut. She’s been so proud of it. Today it fell off. And through her own way, communicated that she wanted another bandaid (even though she didn’t need it.) I think she thinks its some ultra cool sticker or something.
8th – John started 3-day preschool!
9th – I love the sound of pitter-patter bringing contraband (aka cereal) into their room!
10th – Instead of using dolls or my little ponies in her dollhouse, she’s using cars!
11th – John read a book to Lydia tonight and even had her sit on his lap.
12th – The Daddy-tax on a Fruit Roll-Up is 60%.
14th – Lydia’s treasures: a plastic basket full of cars, band-aids on both elbows, and her sippy cup.
15th – Been working a lot and today was a 12 hour shift.
17th – I think I’m going to have to stock up on bandages. My kids are in that stage where bandages are the coolest things ever and can heal anything.
19th – John totally nudged me out of my own bed last night slowly creeping into and then completely taking over my spot.
22nd – Was so tired I literally almost fell asleep in the shower!
24th – I had to work until I put away all chairs, tables, cords, etc. So, Aaron brought the kids and helped me for a bit. When it was time to go John started crying and said, “I want to take mommy with me.”
25th – Took the kids to a 50% sale at a second-hand kid store and it ended up being an almost 3 hour ordeal, because of poor management and lack of integrity on the store’s side. The other mom’s called in the police and media… Lesson: Don’t get between a mama and her bargain shopping!
26th – John Caleb just chided Aaron, after my lunch-prayer, for not thanking God for our spoons
27th – Lydia’s a beauty queen in a parade of her own making as she sits in the car attached to the grocery cart waving and saying, “hi!” to every person we pass.
28th – “Peanut butter heart?! cheese?! grapes?! How ridiculous!” – John
29th – Individualities have started to emerge for the first time ever I served two different cereals to my kids.
30th – “Mommy I not 16, I 4.” – John
“You’re only four?” – Me
“Yeah.” – John
“Do you think you should drive a car?” – Me
“Yeah, I’m thinking I want the keys.” – John
