J: Mom, you're going to have to remember what I want for my birthday because I won't be able to remind you, okay?
R: Okay, I got it
Clearly she didn't trust me because now she quizzes me on her wish list.
After nearly 2 months in this house we finally bought Mattie a new dresser (her clothes had been in a box in her room.) We loaded the dresser in the car then started buckling the girls in their seats when Mattie burst into tears.
Mattie: Where's my dresser? Where's my dresser?
And that's when I realized she thought dresser meant a new dress.
We finally have a good system in the mornings. Jilly wakes up who-knows-how-early but she's good about making a little bed for herself in my room or quietly looking at books for a while (one morning I had Design Mom: How to live with Kids on my nightstand and she looked through the whole book before I woke up and was excited to show me her favorite pages.) Bryan and Mattie take turns waking up first, usually sometime between 6:30 and 7. Mattie will often call to me from her crib and the other day I woke up to a little voice calling "Rachel, Rachel, I'm awake Rachel!"

After much anticipation, Jilly finally started preschool this week. There was supposed to be a parents' meeting Tuesday night but all schools were closed early because of the high heat and humidity (some schools don't have A/C.) So, no parents meeting. On Wednesday we were supposed to have a modified class that was only an hour and parents were invited, but again, schools were closed early and since Jilly's class is in the afternoon that meant it was canceled again. I was anticipating this since it was just as hot and humid on Wednesday as Tuesday, but we still had gotten ready and taken pictures just in case she did get to go to preschool. Jilly was bummed, but took it well.
