Both Sidney and Spencer know a lot of animal sounds and they like using them. Since it is too cold to go to the farm or the zoo, we generally stick to pictures, books, and an animal app that they love.
Up here in Connecticut, we barely remember what the ground looks like. I am very concerned that my kids will grow up thinking the sky is blue (because yes, the sky is fabulous shades of blue lately), and the ground is white, or a sludgy slushy dirty white. I am so sick of snow. But last weekend, for one day, one glorious day, it was warm enough to play outside. It was fifty degrees. And since lately temperatures of 5 have been common, 50 was a dream! And we took full advantage of it!
When I was pregnant with Emily I had all these day dreams about the things we would do together. And I had a vision of her 5th birthday party. And it was perfect, in my day dream and in real life. How do I know? Tonight, tucking her into bed, one day after her birthday party, Emily said to me, completely unprompted, “Mommy, can I have another tea party next year? I loved that so much.”
Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my sweet 5 year old girl!!
I remember when i started doing cross stitch. I was young – 10, 12? I am not sure exactly, but I remember the feel of the needle, the beauty of the threads, the thrill of translating the pattern into design.
