We get lots of snuggle time together these days. We finished Because of Winn Dixie and now we're reading A Little Princess.
My little princess complained to me the other day that she was never going to get to be a real mermaid. Because apparently she thinks real mermaids exist.
She cited objective evidence of having met Ariel multiple times.
She had her first gymnastics class today.
She said it was the funnest thing she's ever done.
(Disregard the wrestling going on in the background)
Well actually, she said it like this:
Mom. Remember when I told you that the Awanas awards night was my favorite night ever? Well if that night was a person and you made my gymnastics class a person, and you put them right next to each other, I would almost hate the Awanas person because the gymnastics person was so much more fun.
But I guess she liked gymnastics.
This is a jello fish. Alex has been wanting to make this for a long time. Like, well over a year.
The "recipe" was in her princess cook-book, and finally I said "Ummmmm. Okay."
I was on a roll that day, jello fish and painting.
Home economics and art: check.
