A lot has been going on lately.
It was my birthday last Wednesday, we didn’t do anything fancy, just a little dinner and cake and ice-cream with families.
I got two presents from my kids.
First, I took my baby to his 4 months well check that day. He got 3 shots and was sleeping peacefully afterward.
Second, my sweet girl gave me this coloring page:
What’s so special about this you ask? Well, as the free spirit that she is, she usually doesn’t do her coloring page following any line (which I don’t really care because I don’t want to limit her creativity). However, she colored within the lines just for my birthday!
On to the not so fun stuff.
Constructions have been going on literally in our front yard. We basically had to use 4 wheel drive to get into our driveway, at least little girl thought it was fun off roading.
This makes a napless baby. If you know what I meant! Napless baby = NO SLEEP AT NIGHT FOR MOMMY AND BABY!
He is still so cute though regardless.
It also has been an eventful week for my 4 year old (and Mommy).
#1 We went to the Mcdonalds play place and there was a black guy. She burst out saying (pretty loudly), Mommy, daddy said not to trust black guys. I instantly told her not to say that. Then she said, Why Mommy, but daddy said not to trust black guys while pointing AT the black guy………
(Disclaimers: My husband never said that. She just took something he said out of context.)
#2 She has been learning about the solar system in preschool. When we were driving home, she asked, Mommy if the earth is going round and round and round, why do we not feel dizzy? What a good thinker! I seriously was shocked by that and forgot the answer!
#3 Since she has been learning so much about the solar system, she wanted to see the solar system. I am not as smart as she is, so I had a hard time explaining to her that we can’t actually SEE the solar system. However, I said you could probably become an astronaut and go into space. So her career goal changed from becoming a doctor, to an astronaut, Rapunzel, and spiderman. She said, “I want to be so many things!”. Oh, and construction worker, because digging in the mud with heavy equipment looks really fun.
#4 We went to her preschool field trip to the BYU planetarium yesterday. They were showing some silly things at the beginning, like what belongs and don’t belong to the sky. Then she asked me, “Mommy, when are they going to show the planets?” You know, she meant, come on, we are here to see planets, not silly things!
After the show, I asked her if she wanted to take a picture with the planets on the wall. She said I WANT to take pictures OF the planets, so she did.
I basically had to force her to stand in front of the wall so I could snap a picture to prove that we were there.
