Abby (and now Lochlan) like to participate when I'm doing a workout video.

Today, Abby said a few things that made me giggle. This is unfortunately the only one I can remember at the moment.

"You're doing it mom! Do you feel your bones getting healthy?"

Abby was talking about her birthday party again tonight. I say again because there's not usually a day that goes by that she doesn't mention her birthday and party.

Tonight the latest was she wants to go swimming and have a BBQ. "And then I think I want a parade! Yes. A parade. Oh, it would be the best birthday ever with a parade!

I was struggling a tiny bit to carry something awkward and heavy and Abby said "I'll help you mom, I have protein!"

chore chart

We were making up Abby's chore chart, and Abby picked "Keep hands to self" as one of her tasks. A little while later as she was playing with Lochlan, she was being a little aggressive and was hanging on to him and leading him (pushing him) and I told her to not do that....and also reminded her about her chart. She immediately went over to her chart, picked the keep hands to self magnet off and said, "I don't want to keep my hands to myself."  A few more minutes passed, she was once again doing something similiar with Lochlan and again, I told her to stop. She said: "mom, mom, mom, it's okay. It's not on my chore chart!"

Lochlan was standing on a chair yesterday while eating lunch and I kept telling him to sit down. Abby said, "yeah Lochlan, that's why God gave you a bum!"

No show!

The other day Abby lost her TV privileges.She brought me a Dora video and said "mom, can I watch this?" I told her "no, you don't get to watch any shows today." And she goes: "mom, mom, mom, mom, I'm not saying a show, I'm saying a movie! Okay?" I explained it was the same thing and then she said, "but mom, you're really hurting my feelings."

Seriously, now.
