Today we went to a Princess and Prince birthday party. Julie was easy to find a dress for but Audric's outfit took some time to make. I was lucky to find a suit at the Pope thrift shop and I just added the extras. I was so surprised at how many kids were dressed up. A lot of the boys came dressed up as knights (what I was going to do if I didn't find a suit). Audric wasn't happy about dressing up until I said he could have a sword and a lolly pop. He had a great time once he was there and he didn't even ask to take the jacket off once we got there like I said he could. I even got him to smile for a picture on our way home (without a lolly pop).
Tim brought up to Audric that we would be moving (some time in the not so far future) and Audric was really upset and then asked if he could bring all his toys with us. Of course we said yes and on our way out the door to dinner he had his bucket of planes with him ready to go. Why does Tim bring things up that make the kids worry? Like why did Tim ask Audric if he would be afraid of Mickey Mouse when we go to Disney world? Audric wasn't afraid but he is now. How about the time Tim asked Audric “Are you disappointed you didn’t get something you wanted” on Christmas. Poor kid looked depressed for the next twenty minutes thinking about all the toys he may have wanted and didn’t get. I’m sure these won’t be the only times Tim asks our kids questions without thinking about what he’s saying.
Not only can Julianna do the splits but she can count to twelve, tell us her shapes and colors. And the other day I asked her to write an "L" and she did, impressing a new friend. She continues to surprise us with things she learns from us and her brother even though she doesn't let us directly teach her (she's very independent).
I'm pretty simple, I try and keep it real.
I started writting this blog to keep record of all the silly, fun, interesting and not so good things that happen to my family. I'll write more about myself when I get more interesting.
