This morning we had E's last swimming lesson, she did a great job, and can even swim across the whole pool by herself, using just a float belt. Dada and M stayed home for a nap. We had a picnic lunch outside and did some work in the garden.
We had a stand off with E tonight over eating one bite of mushroom at dinner. She wasn't leaving the table till she did it, and she kept asking to but put to bed, rather then eating the mushroom. She finally ate it when I told her she could water plants once it was gone.
This was a bit of a crazy day, dada was sick, so the girls and I walked to Panera to pick up dinner, its a nice walk with lots to see and do on the way, so we were able to stay out of dada's hair for a nice long time.
M was still a little under the weather today, she went to sleep very late last night, so she was zonked in the morning. She had a hard time going to bed again this night.
May 4- For some reason, M became fascinated with E's shoes. She would grunt for help, until we put them on her, then she'd march around the room. She never actually fell, which I couldn't believe!
Today, I got to take E to see the Princess and the Pea at the Barrymore Theater, it was her first time being in such a theater, and only the second play she'd ever seen. We had a great evening, we started with dinner at McDonalds (of course) and the headed to the play in our "beautiful dresses" she ate her "wookie cookie" at the play, and told me that the cookie had too much wookie in it!
E and dada went to urgent care today because she started developing spots, turns out she had the case of Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease that has been going around daycare.
May 3- Today we got to play with our friend E, and the girls had a wonderful time. They got to spend some nice time outside, and we broke out the spray bottles. It was one of little E's first times with a spray bottle, and I think she might be hooked. M too the chance to put everything in her mouth, of course. Her green bottle of bubbles she plays with empty, since she dumped it earlier, but she's got sidewalk chalk in the picture, which she is busy eating.
E and I stayed home from school today because she was coming down with something, so we hung around the house and watched too much TV!
April 30- Pick me up please!
