Oh the “babysitters”

July 19, 2014

Clare loves these little “babysitters”. Katie sometimes takes pieces of this set with her when she babysits, so Clare started calling them “babysitters”. Yes. They are indeed a mix of those teeny tiny polly pockets and a mini cabbage patch set or two or three. At any rate, she loves them!

She has asked a zillion times this week if she could play. At least now she’s gotten better about asking when Ellie naps. Today, she played for over an hour spreading them all out on the floor and moving from one little collection to the other. It was awesome.

The Cabbage Patch are toys we purchased for Katie when she was younger. The Polly Pockets are a mix of some Aunt Anna had as a kid and several that one of my KG students passed on to Katie several years ago. It makes for quite a great set of toys. I’m most happy that although she still makes an enormous “mess” that she no longer fusses or takes a hundred years to clean them up. I’m quite happy with a 5-day learning curve. This girl really does surprise me sometimes!

Thanks to a fellow homeschooling friend who was cleaning out her house, the girls received a free trampoline this afternoon. Oh how they both love it. I love watching them. I love that Clare so willingly shares the time with Elizabeth. I love that Elizabeth can seriously jump on this little thing. Hold on, she is going to be unstoppable also. These two may be a duo not to be crossed.

Thanks Aunt Gerise of a little late birthday surprise. The Disney mold is precious and no one was complaining about the surprise homemade chocolate muffins for breakfast. YUMMY and a true indulgence.

Hope your weekend includes just a little indulging also. We are quite excited about attending a very special boy’s baptism on Saturday. Nate continues to work in the garage getting shelves built and everything organized so Nate’s car can go in the garage for the first time in forever. Gotta get all those bikes, scooters, hoola hoops, balls, rackets, gloves, sidewalk chalk, etc. up off the floor. I can’t wait to show you the big reveal when it’s complete. It will be awesome and a great accomplishment also.
