Here's our token spaghetti dinner face. Everyone's got one of these right?? She was really enjoying herself. It was fun to watch.
I'm going to tattle on my family:
-A few weeks ago I found a Berenstein Bears DVD for $2 at Ross for Cyrena. Since watching it, she has taken to calling me 'mama' where before I was always just 'mom' which I personally prefer. She's forcing the mama, it doesn't come naturally to her.
-On Sunday, David was teaching Sunday School. He likes when I comment during his lessons because it makes him feel like he has support. So I'd been in and out of the Sunday School room about 5 times with loud-mouth Natalie but I happened to be in the room when a comment came to my mind. I am usually a little nervous and flustered when I comment in a big group like that. Anyway, I raised my hand, my husband called on me and I proceeded to share my comment. In the middle of my bumbling monologue, Natalie first starts waving madly at her daddy then decides to pass some gas, not once, but twice with some added pushing and grunting. A great way to calm my already flustered nerves.
-Cyrena was walking through Target with me, checking out all the latest stuff (toys) and she was asking for stuff (toys) and I was saying NO as usual. Then she said, "Mom, we'll just have to wait and check if it's on clearance?" I guess she's already learning what those great little red tags mean at Target!
-I sent David and Cyrena to the store the other night with a list that said ALBERTSON'S at the top. The phone rang pretty quickly after they left. It was David, "Were we supposed to go to Fry's or Albertson's?" They had pulled into the Fry's parking lot and Cyrena said, "Dad we're supposed to go to Albertson's, not Fry's!!" So he called to verify. TOO funny. Cyrena listens better than her Dad I guess! Oh and once he got to Albertson's he called another 3 times to verify other items on the list. He makes me laugh....I need to send him more often.
-I was working on Natalie's Halloween costume in the loft so things were a little chaotic (when the sewing machine comes out....it's a mess). I had put part of it on her, then she crawled away. David and I heard a door shut and we both assumed she had shut herself in the girls' room. So we left her in there to play, there's nothing she can get into in there and we figured maybe she was trying to get her blanket. A few minutes later, I went to see if she wanted to come out yet (it was then I noticed that both her door AND my door were shut). She wasn't in her room, she was in mine. Actually, not just my bedroom, but my bathroom. Not just my bathroom but my toilet room. She was filling the toilet with TP then fishing some of it back out to chew on while continuing to splash in the water. Who doesn't love to chew on toilet-water soaked TP? I yelled for David and we stripped her then put her immediately in the bathtub. Needless to say, I had to wash her costume before I even finished it. YUCK.
-For the past week I've been thinking my pictures are all out of focus and something was wrong with my camera. Then I realized there was a large fingerprint right in the middle of the lens...duh.
