I remarked on this to Jason and added that having kids while doing school is nice because the time passes so quickly. He agreed but then said, " But then at the end you will look back and wonder where those years of your life went."
Now I don't know how to feel.

He and Bug chatted for a second and then he said, "See ya tomorrow!!" Then he leaned closer to her and said very sternly, "If I don't see you tomorrow your butt is going to be grounded!" Then he straightened up, waved enthusiastically and said very cheerfully, "See ya!!"
Bug just stood there looking a little perplexed. She has never heard the word "grounded" and at our house "butt" is a bad word. I think she had no idea what he was trying to say to her. That's ok with me but now I keep a closer eye on everyone when he is around. Just in case there is something I need to explain or correct.

This was what I got at C.V.'s. They don't take internet coupons but the do double coupons up to 50 cents so I got a few good deals. Originally, this all would have cost 75.92 but I got it for 56.52. Not the best bargin shopping but it's only the second time for me to figure out the best deals all by myself.

I went to the gym today. I haven't been to the gym since right after I had Bug. I dropped the girls off in the day care there and the nice lady at the front desk gave me a tour of the facility. There was about ten minutes before the next class started so I went back to the day care to wait. I held Thumper and talked with the workers and then headed off for some Flow Yoga. (Don't ask. I have no idea.) About 5-10 minutes into the routine, the overhead speaker came on. "Rebekah, you are needed in the day care. Rebekah, you are needed in the day care." So much for a trim tummy. Thumper was sobbing and so we packed it up and went home. Therefore, I have decided I will try and see if I can make myself get out of bed at 4:45 in the morning and go to the early class on Mondays and Wednesdays. This class is called Tread and Shred. I think it sounds daunting. And then on Tuesday I will go at 8:30 in the morning which is usually a happy time for babies 'round the world. That class is called Body Shop. Makes me think of a mechanic. After that class the girls and I can got to the Library for Toddler Hour. On Thursdays, I will go at 9am for..prepare yourself...Zumba. I watched a little of this class today. It looks fun and groovy. On Friday and Saturday mornings I want to go at 8:30 and 9:00 for Core (abs) and then Double Step which I assume is a step class. Hopefully, Thumper will cooperate a little more the rest of the week. Maybe she is still feeling a little down since she was vomiting yesterday. Poor baby.

Claire wore purple b/c it was it was clean.
Here is her lunch bag that she got to use for the very first time! I packed it too full but I was having so much fun that I got carried away! We were all a little excited.
Even this one was excited because she was going to Aunt Lisa's house and was going to have APPLE JUICE!!!!
They played a fishing game.
They did 3 painting crafts and played all sorts of musical and outdoor games.
This week it's my turn and I'm going to do a Frog and Toad theme.

I use the word "help" very loosely.
As you can see, Elaina was very helpful as well as she showed us all her ballerina moves. She was almost as helpful as I was!
We had extra material so we...no no... Mom made a curtain for the kitchen window, too.

Elaina has come out of her shell this past week. She is all talk all the time. And the sentences are so random. Her conversation with Grandma the other day went something like this: (no breathing in between sentences, remember.)
"Hi. I am three but when I am four I will be bigger like Audrey is bigger. And I will have bigger shoes. And I want to go outside and see the bookshelf, too. And I don't like zucchini. And I'm not supposed to touch my pee-pee because that's nasty." And so on and so forth. (Sorry if someone is offended but just keeping it real. ("PW")
Yesterday morning I picked out Elaina's clothes for church and put them on the bed and after I washed her hair I sent her in to her daddy to get dressed. I had picked out this lovely pink and black dress that I specifically remembered buying in a 5T size so that she could wear it all year. After she was dressed, I started blow drying her hair and noticed the buttons were about to pop off. I checked the size and it was a 24 months! I couldn't believe Jason had even gotten the thing on her. She begged not to take it off because it was her Princess Dress. So I figured if it didn't bother her, why bother?
Claire is just Claire. She is officially potty trained as of sometime this past week. She hasn't worn a pull-up in several days and she does have the occasional "askident" but usually there is a valid reason. It's so nice to finally have only one child in diapers. I realized Sunday that my brother-in-law's wedding was only 5 months away. Claire and Elaina are the flower girls and I think they will do fine but what am I going to do with Claire's hair??!!!! I am at a loss. Blow drying it with a round brush seems to help but there just isn't anything to work with. Sigh.
Eily. My sweet, drooling, cuddly Eily. Smiley Eily. She is Daddy's Baby. Elaina's "stister" with the "little ears! Awww." She is crawling and pulling up all the time. She LOVES her mommy and has developed a little bit of shyness with most of the rest of her acquaintances. She'll dip her head down and look at them out of the corner of her eyes. I am soaking her up as much as I can b/c she won't be this size very long at all.
