Apparently, Wayne and I are expecting another baby!
The sad thing is, we don’t even KNOW it yet!
Ms. Meg, who is the teacher’s aid in Alise’s class and also a friend from church, hit me at the door this morning and said, “Your daughter told us something yesterday!” I looked down at Alise and said, “What?” – my mind running through a hundred different things. Alise just had this blank stare on her face.
Meg said, “Hey Alise! Do you remember what you told me yesterday?”
Alise still looked confused.
And then! It was like a light bulb went off and this huge grin spread across her face, but she still wouldn’t spill the beans no matter how much Ms. Meg begged.
Finally, Meg said, “I asked your daughter yesterday if her mommie and daddy were going to have another baby and she told me yes! I was so surprised and I thought that ya’ll were holding out on us!”
Everyone laughed, but I had to inform them that no, indeed, I was not pregnant.
Thank you, God.
I also wanted to point out the fact that my daughter is the best dressed kid in her class. Mrs. Leggett told me today that Alise is “always dressed so cute.” And this is only the 4th day of school!! I must be doing something right! Even if I do have to fight with my daughter every morning about what she is going to wear!
However, I think I have finally nipped that whole little issue in the bud! On Sunday afternoon, I made Alise come with me into her room and pick two outfits that she wanted to wear for the week and then I got to pick two. She could wear those four outfits any day she wanted but she could only choose one out of those four. Friday’s are cheerleading outfit (when it comes in)/RO jumper/pep rally themed days. So far, the plan is working. No fits and no meltdowns. We’ll see how long we can keep this up!
And last but not least, Alise wanted to carry a movie to school today, but I convinced her to carry a book instead.
A girl after my own heart!
