Mommy and Me...

Today is my "normal" grocery day. I use the term, "normal" very loosely. Because well, there isn't anything that's "normal" about our family. I mean, where else can you find enough goldfish pieces in your daughter's floor to actually make a full bag of goldfish, all under a pile of toys? Or where else can you find a 3 year old who refuses to wear anything but underwear when it's 40 degrees outside? Or where a 5 1/2 year wants to pull all of her teeth out so she can get one more dollar?

 {Dear Sweet Pea, please stop trying to pull all your teeth out at once. Soon, you will have no teeth. This is not good because, you don't like mashed potatoes. You do like applesauce and yogurt, so I guess you would survive. But still, let's slow down for now, OK? I mean, you growing up just too fast. And it freaks people out a little that you're only 5 1/2 and have lost 3 teeth. Then again, it really doesn't matter what people think so, pull baby pull. Just slow down, OK? OK! Love, mom who only carries debit card and no cash :)}

 Moving on....
So today I'm going to get groceries. Instead of going by myself, (thanks to Mimi who watches the kids while I go by myself), I'm taking Sweetie Pie. My sweet little soon to be 4, oh my goodness when did my baby turn 4, Sweetie Pie. She is our middle child and I think she feels like some of our attention isn't quite on her as much. We do give her attention but I think she feels like she's not old enough to be like Sis-Sis(as she calls Sweet Pea and Sweet Pea calls her Sissy, so sweet. I love sister stuff.) and too old to get away with some stuff that Brother does. So, I decided she need a Mommy and Me day. Where we eat lunch at her place of choice and my attention is completely on her. I did this back in the summer with Sweet Pea. We went to a movie(free summer movies at Regal!) and had popcorn and enjoyed a fun day together. We are also going to get this week's groceries. This is good for her. She's like me: Shopping Queen!(I am so glad both of my girls LOVE to shop! It makes me smile!) So today the Shopping Royalty will be out and about looking for what deals may be found! :)  I look forward to hearing what she has to say. They're only little once and I really want to soak up every ounce of their sweet voices and imaginations I can. Next up will be The Boy's day! I'm not sure what we'll do together but I'm sure it will be interesting.(By the way my baby will be 3 on Saturday. 3. I may cry.) I am really going to try to make a mommy and me day at least once a month. That may not seem like a lot but it's an improvement from nothing, Right? Right! I was going to try this during the summer but you know how life gets in the way and our priorities shift. So, here's hoping you have a great day! I know I will because with all that I have in my life, how could I not?

P.S. I am totally listening to Christmas music while I'm typing. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas! My favorite time of the year! :)
