lots of smiles, laughter and an auntie anne's pretzel
seriously what could be better right?
riley is a crazy reader
she goes through almost a book a day
last night we told her to stop at 8:30
when we went to bed at 9:30 she was still reading
but it is sooooo hard to get mad at her for that
the other night i came in and she was in tears
the book had moved her so much
i love that
till the morning that is
when she is grouchy from lack of sleep
this morning i went to wake her up at 7:15
and she was already awake
she even brought this one to breakfast
tonight we are being stricter
8:15 lights out
aubrey is saying the cutest things these days
she can use the words "share" and "now" in context
every morning when we drop the girls off she says
she pauses for effect between the words and nods her head down on "dool" with such emphasis and expression
it cracks us all up
today on the way home from the mall aubrey and i listened to this song over and over
i remember the girls singing and dancing to it when i was pregnant with aubrey
they said they would sing it to her when she was born
that song makes me happy and sad all at once
riley and aubrey really bonded today
they played doll houses
and little people
riley even did her hair
she was so patient and kind
it really made me happy
later, aubrey sat in riley's room and helped her pick out her school clothes
riley even set her up with some reading material while she showered
bathrooms are always entertaining for some reason
and speaking of entertaining...
i think we have a little builder on our hands
and a proud little builder at that!
after dinner aubrey and i were playing and she kept saying
"mommy bee..mommy bee"
turns out it was "mommy pee!"
hey...daddy's in the tub with his cell phone for goodness sakes...
and on that note...goodnight!
have a happy night,
