I sat down to type up my Thursday WIML post three hours ago, but got sidetracked by a cute font, which lead me to this tutorial on creating blinkies, making me play around in Photoshop, eventually leaving me revising my blog logo! This happens too often: I sit down to blog, but end up spending time on design and not content. In any event, don’t be surprised to see a revised header on Pocketful of Playdough soon, although I don’t think that would really surprise my regular readers.
Enough with my rambling. Let’s talk about Thursday! It was another rainy day, but luckily the rain held off and I got in 7 dry miles of running. After stretching and cooling down, I walked one block from the church to the CVS drug store to pick up some Sudafed. On the way back, the sky opened up and I was soaked within seconds. Major bummer!
I really wanted to go home and take a hot, steamy shower, but on Thursdays after preschool I take the girls to the library and couldn’t disappoint them.
Normally, the girls go straight to the toy bin and spend the time running around the library playing, rather than looking at the books. Then no sooner do I get them home, then they are pulling books off my book shelf. This week for the first time, they wanted to read books! Hooray!
Memorable conversations of today:
First thing after waking up, Monkey took her blankie, ‘Bobo’, held him in front of her and said, “Bobo. Bobo. I’ve got something to tell you. Don’t jump out of the car when I go Bible school. Wait for me in the car.”
*Monkey looked so cute trying to protect ‘Bobo’ from the rain as we walked into the library, I said to her, “I’m going to hug and squeeze you.”
She replied, “Not till we get home.”
*The first thing Monkey said to Zoey once they picked out their toys: “I princess. You doctor.”
*As I was taking notes on the morning while the girls played in the library, I heard, “Mommy! Mommy!”
“What?” I asked.
Monkey said, “Not you. I’m talking to that Mommy.” She then pointed to Zoey. (They play a game where they take turns being the ‘Mommy’ and the ‘Honey’, aka [baby].)
For supper I made rigatoni with my MIL’s homemade spaghetti sauce. As it warmed, the flavorful aroma filled the house.
Just a side note: My MIL makes the most delicious spaghetti sauce! My FIL is the family ‘chef’ but my MIL gives him a run for his money when it comes to spaghetti sauce!
Monkey agrees, at least I think so. She gobbled it up! And of course dropped a few noodles on her dress.
“Well.” She paused and took a breath before continuing, “That’s okay. It’ll dry. The sun will dry it.”
“The sun will dry it?” I asked.
“Yeah, it’s okay. Sun will dry it.”
She was so confident! I even believed her for a second even though the sun wasn’t out all day
Notes on the day:
I took a lot more pictures.
I still haven’t captured any Daddy/Monkey moments, though.
I still need to set the correct date on my camera!
No WIML Friday post.
Possible WIML Saturday post -if I can get Monkey/Daddy time covered.
WIML Sunday post scheduled for Monday.
