What a wonderful weekend! Angel and I enjoyed our time together starting with a princess party with her and me and 2 guests. We all dressed up, had a tea party and danced like princess ballerinas. On Saturday and Sunday morning we resumed our weekend tradition of biscotti in bed. My Mom makes delicious homemade biscotti. Angel and I will eat it while she dunks it in the milk foam in my coffee. We have been doing this for a while and it is something we both look forward to all week. Angel and I visited with friends, went to Pete’s Party Castle, church, the pool, the park and we did a little shopping. It was an eventful weekend. I love this stage she is in right now. She is so interactive, fun and surprising! While at the park we were playing pirates, basically we stood on top of the equipment and said ARRGGGGHHHH Maties and Ahoy there. She would point out other pirates in the distance that were nice or not nice. After a while we got down and were walking to the swings and I spotted a quarter on the ground. I said “Captain Angel look I found treasure ARRRGGHHH!” She turned and looked at me so matter of fact and said, “Mom we’re not playing pirates anymore.” Guess I didn’t get the memo pirate time was over.
A few things to follow up on:
I have given up her not drinking the bathtub and pool water (this still grosses me out), but this is a battle I can’t seem to win. I am tired of fighting it. She is not drinking the water as much as she is sucking on the wash cloth. UGH! At least she is doing that before she bathes!!!!
If you have read my blog for any length of time you know how I loved to rock her to sleep and had planned on doing this until she was at least in high school. I regret to inform you that I no longer get those precious 15 minutes of holding her tight, singing to her and rocking her. I am now doing alright if I can get her to brush her teeth, potty and sleep in her own bed. Forget me reading her stories before she goes to bed, now she is reading stories to me (more like making up stories that go along with the pictures). She is such a sweet, delightful child especially when she yells for me to get out of her room or my favorite is when she yells “LEAVE ME ALONE” in public. AHHHHH Good times. They are good times and I treasure every one of them for I know they won’t last long.
This afternoon I got a phone call that Angel had bitten another child on the finger, so much for getting all smiley faces this week.
