This afternoon, we took all the empty Christmas storage boxes back to the building. Wayne had to stop at the store to get some ice, so he got me and Alise an icee. She thought she was in hot cotton! She has developed a palate for strawberry icees...just like her mom, only I like coke ones better. While we were at the storage building, Wayne and I decided to bring the "royal potty" back with us. When Alise saw it, she knew what to do with it. She sat down on it. I keep telling myself, that it just can't be this easy. We'll see.
Well, tomorrow it's back to the old grind. I'm not looking forward to going back to work and Alise is going to have an adjustment from not being at daycare for a week. I asked her tonight if she was ready to see Ms. Sandy and she said, "Uh-huh" (yes). We're really working on the "please" and "thank you" thing. I wouldn't let her have any cookies after her nap until she said. "Please." She's gotten in to this "hitting" thing lately and so we're trying to discipline her about that. When we do, her sweet little eyes just well up with tears and it breaks my heart because you can tell that you've really hurt her feelings, but we've got to start somewhere. I just know that the "time out" days are coming. She definitly knows what it is!
The big hair cut day is coming!! Trust me! She had the wild do going on this morning for church and I just said, "Ok. That's it. You're getting a hair cut!" If she would just wear a bow, it would be so much better!
She absolutely LOVES to be outside! She followed me and Wayne around all afternoon! I'm still thinking about that slide for her for Christmas. Wayne told me that there was some "climber sets" in Winnsboro. You girls at Farm Bureau help him out with that deal, okay? Tell him that his little girl needs one of those climbers with the slide!!
