Totally unrelated picture, but, hey look! Claire is sitting up!!! 🙂
Striped Dress & Tights by June & January
Eloise has started saying “mik at me! mik at me!” when she wants someone to look at her, anytime she is doing something funny or is trying to get our attention. The other day, she was yelling for Harper, “sissy, mik at me! sissy!” but Harper wasn’t paying attention, so Eloise ran up and tapped her right on on the top of the head and yelled “YOO HOO!?”
Sometimes you don’t want to admit when your kids are exactly like you, like the other day, on our way home from the doctor’s office, I drove through Starbucks. Harper asked if they could have blueberries (the Starbucks at our Target always has dried blueberries that go in the oatmeal, and the sweet barista always gives them to the girls), so I asked if they had some. The barista said no they only had regular blueberries, so I told Harper that we wouldn’t order any because we had regular blueberries at home. Her response? “Oh, then you don’t need to get coffee too right, because we have regular coffee at home?” Touche.
A few weeks ago, I spilled my entire venti iced coffee all over the car as I was pulling my diaper bag out of the front seat & knocked it over. It wasn’t pretty. Later that night, Brandon was giving Harper & Eloise a bath while I nursed Claire in our bed & this conversation took place.
Harper: something happened to mama today
Brandon: oh yea, what?
Harper: She spilled her whole coffee all over the car
Brandon: oh no, really?
Harper: yep, and then she said a bad word.
Brandon: what did she say?
Harper: damnit and fucking.
Mom of the year.
The girls still love their play kitchen, and every day they make all sorts of pretend food to feed to Brandon & I, or baby Claire who will always open her mouth for an empty spoon. Harper will bring me things and tell me it is lemon meringue pie oatmeal or carrot and hummus pot pie. Every time Eloise brings me something and I ask what it is, “TETCHUP!!!!” 🙂
Four year olds, for the win.
