Guess What?


I didn’t even know. He is so easy-going. I decided to see if they were even close and got a surprise! One is through and the other one is right behind.

Miss M wanted to know if the tooth fairy would come visit him to celebrate his first tooth.

After putting Little D down for a nap, I walked into the kitchen to this sight:

“Please get me some milk, Mommy, and come in my room. Mom, please serve the milk to me.”

Sometimes I wonder where she gets her ideas. . .

Bedtime Delay

Miss M is notorious for delaying bedtime. Tonight, after tucking her into bed, I was sitting at the kitchen table. *click* I heard her bedroom door open. At this point, I usually say, “M, what are you doing?” In my best motherly voice that says this better be a really good reason or you are in trouble.

However, I didn’t say anything while waiting for her to walk in, giving me her excuse. Instead, I heard a little rustling just around the corner, and saw the top of her head bobbing just barely within sight.

Then I heard little sneaky footsteps back into her room and *click*

Before I could get up to see what was going on, I heard another *click* more sneaky footsteps, something dropping and sliding on the floor, footsteps and *click*

Then I did get up to investigate, and this is what I found:


I walked into her bedroom and gave her a hug.

“You know, Mommy. When it’s still light outside, I just can’t possibly help it. I have to make cards and notes for you. It’s just what I have to do. See the light?”

She is just like I was, always writing notes for people, and just like her dad who can’t go to sleep when it’s light out.

And, yes, I see the light.

Last Day of Kindergarten

Today was Miss M’s last day of Kindergarten. She was pretty upset because she wants to continue kindergarten forever. She adores her teacher, Mrs. L.

To thank Mrs. L, we made this can:

It says: Thank “Whoo” for teaching me all the things I “can” do!

And she wrote her own special message:

Mrs. L, I love kindergarten. I will miss it. I will say hello every morning. I will really really miss you. I’m ready for first grade. I’m a big girl now. Woo hoo!

“Hugs” and “Kisses”

Love, M

The can is filled with Hershey’s Kisses and Hugs.
