1. Zeke told me tonight that I am the very prettiest and very best mommy ever. He is such a smart child. :)
2. Zeke is the best big brother that I little girl could ever hope for. This afternoon Zeke and Jordan were out on the driveway playing basketball. Then were launching the ball from great distances trying to see who could make the furthest basket. Kaelyn wanting to play with Zeke but he was very concerned that the basketball would bounce off something and hit K. He kept trying to coax her over to me (I was watching from the side), telling her that he didn't want her to get hurt. He even told her at one point that he and Jordan were just going to play for another minute and then he would "play dolls or something" with her. So sweet. Man, I love that kid!
3. Kaelyn likes to personify inanimate objects...giving them names, voices, personalities, etc. Today in the car she chose to play her game with her shoes. She took them off and pretended they were having a conversation with each other. Right off the bat, the shoes got into an argument. Kaelyn made one shoe say to the other, "Hey, why did you push me?" The other shoe said defensively, "I didn't mean to push you...it was an ACCIDENT!" I DO NOT know where she comes up with this stuff...silly girl!
4. Tonight I took both kids to the gym with me so they stayed in the child watch area while I did a group exercise class. After the class I went back to pick them both up and the worker told me Kaelyn was in the kids' bathroom. I walked into the restroom to check on her only to find her hunched over the floor with tiny toilet paper squares mopping up pee off the floor. I never did fully understand whether the pee was hers/someone elses/ or a combination but I wavered between being really excited that she went to the bathroom unprompted and being really grossed out that she was cleaning pee off the floor with her hands. We just used a lot of soap and I tried not to think too much about it. :)
