Today was a pretty typical Saturday morning. P had to work so Caroline and I made cinnamon rolls. She doesn’t really care about the roll, just wants to lick the icing out of the container. Who am I to judge? I’d eat a bowl of raw cookie dough every day if I could.
I put her down for her nap around noon but she didn’t sleep. I kept hearing these thuds and thunks but she seemed content so I let her stay in there so I could have a break. After about an hour she starts saying “Mama, I need some sticky tape for my tomato!!” The request got louder and louder, but finally she got quiet again. About 1:00 I decided to go ahead and let her get up. I walked in her room and she says “Mama, look my tomato needs some sticky tape”. She had gotten her beautiful Wizard of Oz pop up book off her bookshelves and completely shredded the pop up tornado (tomato). You can be sure that no amount of sticky tape will help that poor tomato now. It’s gone on to a better place.
Tonight I went to see The Devil Wears Prada. I can’t tell you how hard parts of it made me laugh. Meryl Streep is so unbelievably good. I’ll definitely go see it again if I have a chance. The outfits alone are worth watching for.
Tomorrow I have to work in the nursery at church which means I have to get us all dressed and out the door by 8:30. Never gonna happen.
