Today when I got home we had to run to the store. Em promptly grabbed her purse, which has $2.25 in it, and told me she was ready to go to the store. I asked Em if she was going to pay for the groceries and she quickly replied, "no, Momma buys the groceries!".
Happy 5th Birthday Josie Kate!!! I hope I get to see you soon and I'll sing the birthday song in person!!
Today I heard the ice cream man again come in the neighborhood!! As soon as I heard it I grabbed Mom's hand and made sure she knew what to do! When I got to the front porch I noticed my shoes were on the wrong feet!!! I panicked but sat down quickly and changed my shoes before the ice cream truck passed by! I was worried for a second that I would miss the ice cream man.
Thankfully Mom had some money on her and I got to get a vanilla ice cream cup!! Don't tell anyone but Mom let me eat the ice cream before supper!!
Ole Dada here; doing a little guest blogging while Lindsey is on call this weekend. We had a pretty busy day. We started the day off with a trip to soccer in Dada's new truck. Every time we walk past the Jeep on the way to the truck; Emma feels the need to say, "Dada's truck, the Jeep is OLD!" Emma did well at the "soccer" gym. She did all the drills the big kids did. We even rapped up "soccer" practice with a "ring around the rosie" done parachute style. Emma loved the big parachute! We celebrated the successful soccer outing with a trip to the Donut Barn. Emma picked out a pink donut and chowed down while I talked to David, the doughnut guy. He is awesome! He talks to Emma every time we're there. He even brought us a fresh, hot doughnut out of the cooker, on the house! We played various toddler games all day, and finished the day up with somersaults and ring around the rosies in the living room.
Ole Dada here again. Before church, we made an encore appearance at the Donut Barn. Emma and Dada love this place (and the doughnut guy!) Since we don't go to the nursery anymore, Mama and Dada don't get to go to Sunday School; at least until Emma starts Sunday School in the Fall. Emma was excited to get all her stuff packed up and ready for big church. She had her snacks, pink dinosaur purse, and juice all ready to go. What else could a girl need? (maybe a pink doughnut!)
Emma knows that she has to be as quiet as a mouse during big church, or else she is threatened with going to the dreaded nursery (that she loved for the first 2 years of her life.) We strategically sit near the back, on an end of the row; just in case we need to make a quick exit. So far, Emma has been on her best behavior in Big Church.
A big, blogger shout out to Emma's big girl friend Lizzie from church. She gave Emma her old slide and Emma loves it. She is learning to take turns, and let her pink, dinosaur purse have a turn going down the slide!
Got my stuff, ready to go!
I'll be good. I promise!
Today Em showed me a glimpse of patience that I know she inherited from her daddy! She sat on the front porch and slowly emptied a small bottle of bubbles by dipping the bubble stick in the bubbles, taking it out and letting the bubbles drip off and repeating. She did this until supper time!
Today's blog is dedicated to Jack the cat. You see Jack is a good cat most of the time. He usually plays with me and I still make sure he gets a drink of water during bath time. Tonight was no exception.
Jack always walks into the bathroom once I'm an done bathing and he sits on the potty until I fix him a cup of water in the green cup. I always say, "Jack, are you thirsty?". He never answers me but I know he wants a big ole cup of water.
Tonight I was tired, Em was tired and we did not want to eat what was in the house so we had a little date at Chili's! I was a tad nervous about this venture but Em was quite good! We talked about her day and she informed me that she wants to go to work tomorrow, not play. Oh your time will come Em, keep playing for now!
After supper we came home and then conquered bath time. Em has not been sleeping too soundly so here is to a good night sleep tonight!
All smiles after putting her straw in her big girl cup!
