the subtle, oh so important milestones...

...when she called me "mom" for the first time...
even if she was over 2 years old when it happened...
...when she told me for the first time "I'm hungry" or "can I have a snack?" because she felt hungry
...when she asked me for the first time "mom, will you play with me"
...or even better, "mom, can I play with my friend?"
...first time she put a spoon on her head and pretended it was a hat
...when I asked her at 4 and a half years old: "where are you going?" and she told me "I'm going potty"
...the first time she asked "will you help me, please?"
...when she told me the other day, "we look at what we are pointing at." and I didn't tell her that!
...when she said "mom, we don't say the word stupid." and she came up with that on her own: haha!
...when she asked today "mom, do you have your chapstick?" because she realized her lips needed it!!!

...I notice these things kiddo
...and I get so excited are you are so unique
...innocent and good
...I love to watch you learn
...I love to teach you in your way
...hand over hand
...over and over again
...then you get it
...and you excel
...this is your way

...dedicated to kids who learn this way
and their moms who notice the subtle,
oh so important, milestones...

mundane monday...

"what is it?" something fun to do on Mondays? Okay!
the reason we started this new blog was so that the cousins who live in different states can do an activity "together" and share keep in was the first day and my girls continued throughout the day asking if their cousin was doing all the things they were doing: "is Meg eating watermelon now?" "is Meg going outside?" "is Meg going for a drive?"

the bunny, the bunny...

...things went a lot better than last year... fact, this year I wasn't even going to bother, but the girls started asking to see him, and M told me, "I'm bigger now so I will give the Easter Bunny a big hug and a delicious carrot." she was true to her word...

Happy Spring!
