Okay...so last night I didn't sleep very well. Lots of reasons, but suffice it to say that I wasn't in any hurry to get up this morning. I like to get up well ahead of my girls so that I am not a walking zombie not making any sense while they are running around needing me to make sense...does that make any sense?? Anyway!!!
My girls are usually late sleepers. Aly usually sleeps until 8 or 8:30 and Lili is usually pushing 10 or 10:30, so when I rolled over at 8 something this morning, I just kept on rolling. I could feel Aly curled up in the small of my back and I figured she would wake me up when she woke up. A little while later I realized that Aly was not curled up the small of my back...it was the dog!!! I know, you are wondering why I can't tell my 4 year old from my Jack Russell. Well, they both like to press into the small of my back and they both like to dig at my skin with their toes and/or paws and...well...just chalk it up to lack of sleep!!
So, I laid there for awhile thinking that Aly must be in the bathroom, but then she never came out so I decided I better go in search of her. By the time I got myself together and made it out into the living room I found my little princess sitting at the coffee table making me a card. She quickly threw herself in horror onto her little project and screamed, "MOOOOOOOOM...don't look! I am making a surprise for you!!!" So, I wandered into the kitchen and found her other surpise on the kitchen table. She had fixed breakfast for herself and for her sister. I love it!! This is what she fixed:
A juice box, a bowl full of carrots and Gold Fish crackers, a box of raisins, a fortune cookie and, as every good breakfast should have....one little chocolate kiss. How precious is that!!!!
Thank you God for my precious children!!!
Oh, and speaking of my children, they and their Poppy (my dad) have become quite the little jelly bean eaters. They love 'em and Poppy always has them on hand. The other day he opened a new bag and was going to throw away the black licorice ones...I said, "oh, the girls don't like them either?" He said that he didn't know. He just never gave them to the girls because he didn't think they would like them. I said, "You should let them try 'em and see." So, he did.
Can you guess what flavor they now claim as their favorite??????? Can I say, "YUCK!!"
