T-Ball on this cold and rainy morning. A drag getting there, but good once we were there. Ella played 1st base in this game and she was happy to have stopped a couple hits. So happy she would turn to me on the sidelines and shake her bootie and give me thumbs-up. Yeah Ella! This afternoon she left us for a birthday party. Molly and I stayed home-after a little coloring, we decided to have a HSM2 dance party. It’s really fun. About 3 songs in my sweet baby started yelling and crying at me which dissolved into a full-blown temper tantrum for about 5 minutes. When she finally calmed I pulled her on my lap and she put her head down on my chest. A few deep breaths and my big girl was snoozing like she was a baby again. I think I sat there forever enjoying that tender snore, warmth and a moment which will probably not come again anytime soon. When I finally decided to get somethings done before picking up E-I moved her to the couch and when I peeked in on her later-a little buddy had joined her.
Huge kudos to Angry Chicken. Once again a fabulous idea came from this lady. She had her kids cut out friday flyers to make picto-grocery lists. This morning while I cleaned up from breakfast I had Ella grab a couple sheets of paper, glue sticks and scissors while I got the ads and away they went. Much fun and we are looking forward to our trip to the grocery store tomorrow. However, do you think it is a bad sign when your 5 year old puts beer on the shopping list? And it is Bud light??
And my big accomplishment of the day-I finished 4 of our placemats we made over vacation. I love them! Because I finished four of them I am afraid that my motivation for finishing them is gone-HOWEVER-lo and behold Grumpa is coming to dinner on Monday so I set a goal to use those for dinner so I will get them done. I finished them! Phew-I feel better.
And just a side-thanks for all your responses on my last post. I was worried about posting about that, but everyone helped me feel good about it. LazyToadFarm-so good to hear from you. Thanks for commenting!
