Yesterday we planned to head out to Anna's school for the PTA sponsored book fair. Anna is doing so well with her reading, and we are so proud of her, we want to continue to nurture that desire. John and I were both slow starters as children, but now both love to read. I am so glad this habit has rubbed off on Anna.
Because we have been so busy lately, I am ashamed to admit the we were a little behind on baths. Neither of the kids were funky per se, but I wanted to make sure that Anna's skin was getting darker from those Serbian/Mexican genes and the Spring sun... not from becoming her own science project. I know that when we are busy like this it's better to give the girls a bath after Anna gets home from school, because if we wait until the evening, we either are out or too exhausted. ;)
So knowing all of this, and the fact that we were going out last night, they got a bath yesterday after school and snacks. After finishing Em, I was working on Anna next. Being that she is easily distracted I had to remind (chide her even) for lallygagging. It's not unusual, actually its a daily occurrence- several times a day.
Anna, hurry up and get dressed. I still have to clean your ears and comb your hair. I wouldn't want to have to show up at your school looking like this.
You mean with un-matching pajama pants and t shirt?
And your hair a mess?
And NO MAKE UP?
Yeee-es, I haven't even had a shower yet. Wouldn't you be a little embarrassed?
*wide eyed stare, with raised eye brow*
Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Very funny. *I try not to laugh, but do*
When I told John last night he chuckled and said ," Hmmmmm."
As if to say- Gee, I wonder where she got that from? Yeah, yeah... beating a dead horse. Hel-looo-ooo. You know you've been married a long time when sarcasm is limited to one sound, and your mate knows exactly what you are thinking.
It's a good thing I love this kid. ;) My husband too. :D
