I have wanted to post a few things for a while, but time is so hard to find lately.
On Monday I took my kids to the Zoo. I realized this is the last week to do fun stuff before Merci goes to school=( It was a nice mild day, perfect zoo weather.
On Thursday I babysat Ariana and Yesenia. I had two 1 year olds and two 5 year olds. It was actually a very good day. Yesenia and Merci played outside ALL day! No whining little girl at my side telling me how she wants this and that! They had a bad hour where they were in and out, in and out asking for stuff but other than that they were GOOD. I heard the door slam shut and so I yelled"WHAT DO YOU WANT NOW" in walks Josh with some roses. One red from him and 4 little yellow roses (one for each kid). He layed a kiss on me and left again! 4 stars honey.* Ethan and Ariana took naps at different times so I usually only had one crawling around playing. I decide since I couldn't be cleaning or running up and down doing laundry, that I would scrapbook! Perfect solution. I was right by the window watching the big girls play all day, and right where I could see the little ones playing. I finished 6 (back and front) scrapbook pages. YEAH ME! That brings me to Nov 2002. Yeah I know still a long way to go.
* This act is not of my husband, I don't know where it came from. Don't be jealous as he is not like this very often;) I love you honey for the wonderful surprises you throw to me randomly. They mean more than those of obligation
Last night Josh asked if he could make dinner. He had been talking about potatoe pancakes the other day, so I was kinda scared. But if he was really going to voluteer to cook that I would eat it! After researching on the internet, he found a yummy recepie. They were GREAT. Check
out his blog about this JOSH.
Last night we also rented Jurassic Park to watch with Merci, after realizing it was a lot more violent than we remembered, especially right before bedtime. We turned it off and brought Merci in bed with us. We talked and cuddled and prayed for her. The realization of her growing up is evident. only 4 more days until our baby starts full day Kindergarten.
So many emotions going around! After we prayed over her we asked her to pray for us.
"Dear Jesus, help my mommy....scrunches nose, makes faces.....help my mommy turn 25 at her birthday. Amen.
"Dear Jeasus, help my daddy...talkes to self quietly, I can tell she is counting(couldn't decide what came next so she goes on)...I love daddy , I love him I love him I love him. Amen"
Here is part of our conversation.
Merci what are you looking forward to at school?
"Painting, I love painting. We can paint with our hands.
Merci aren't you excited to learn to read?
"Yeah. We can learn to paint fans. (While laying down staring at our ceiling fan...one track mind.)
Merci what don't you like about daddy?
"He doesn't have a blue truck"
I was a very precious time!
