We woke up the other morning to the girls arguing about their "boyfriend" and fighting about who he loved and who he was going to dance with. With all the curiosity in the world I pulled myself out of bed to find they had dressed the broom, oopps sorry, the prince and they were fighting over who he loved. I couldn't help but wake Dan who looked up half awake and very calmly asked the girls,"Is this the standard I have set for you?" he,heee! I am not kidding you when I tell you that those girls danced with that "prince" for like two hours. It was the funniest thing. When Morgan went to the bathroom Ryanne ran and grabbed the prince running down the hall yelling,"he's my boyfriend now Morgan!" OH MY GOSH! So funny. I can only imagine and cringe as I project forward 10 or so years. Forget the standards honey and just be glad it's a broom for now and not some stinky boy. ;)
I took Ryanne on a "mommy date" last week and as we were sitting across the table from each other at lunch we had this discussion:
Me: "Ryanne are you so excited to start Pre-K next week?"
Ryanne: "yes mommy."
Me: "Are you nervous Ryanne?"
Ryanne: "yes actually I am. Could you tell me what you think we might be doing there all day?"
Isn't that so cute? I could tell she was nervous and a bit timid about going. I told her later that she was going to miss me when she was at school and she said,"ya' but then when I get home I wont miss you anymore."
Last little story for the week:
We were driving and this teenager was walking down the street with these REALLY bright multi-colored tennis shoes on. Morgan said,"hhmmm, those are bright. I think their OK if he likes them but for me I don't really need such bright shoes since I shine like that from Jesus." Again, my cup overflows.
