We went swimming, for the first time this summer, on Saturday! Daddy went with us then, but on Tuesday I ventured out with both girls all by myself.
And, then on Thursday we went for a picnic at Lineberger Park, and enjoyed their Splash Pad! What amazing summer water fun we’ve had this week. I love it!!
I’m feeling better! Obviously, I’m here, and I have pictures to prove I have been out of that house. That makes me happy.
The girls and I got some awesome books at the Library yesterday. Lizzy-Jane and I have read two of them so far.
Claire told me she loved me for the first time. How monumental is that?!! I was saying goodnight to the girls and tucking them in. I said, “I love you,” as I was walking out of the room. And, then I heard it. I almost missed it. But, I heard it. Claire said, “Love you.” I swung around and said, “Did you say I love you?” (I had been working with her on it, she is not very verbal.) And, she was grinning from ear to ear. She said it indeed!
We spent the night with my parents Tuesday night. While we were there my mom and Dad were desperately trying to get Claire to say her name. But, she won’t do it. Finally Dad said, “If your name is Petunia Jane Ross raise your hand.” And, Lizzy-Jane raised her hand. Then he said, “If your name is Clairee Whitaker Ross raise your hand.” And, Claire raised her hand. We all got a good cheer and laugh out of that one. And, then the next day my mom was talking into an empty coffee canister and trying to get Claire to do it, too. Mom said, “Claire,” into the canister. And, then said, “You say it.” And, Claire leaned into the canister and said, “Nope.” We got a huge laugh out of that one. My mom and I are convinced that Claire, at almost 2, has a very developed sense of humor. I think she gets it from her Dad. *wink*
I get to go see my good friend, Kristen Hedberg, sing in “Carousel” Saturday night. It’s a date night for me and Chris. As long as we can find a baby sitter. I’m super excited and happy about it! And, then we get to have a drink with her and her husband afterwards. I don’t really know her husband, so I’m looking forward to it. I’ve only met him briefly at the wedding. I’ve known Kristen Since I was in the 7th grade, and she was in the 9th grade. We did drama club together. And, then we went to the same college. She was my room mate freshman year, she was a junior then. She majored in Musical Theatre and I majored in Theatre Arts. She’s taught me a lot over the years!!
So, what are you happy about this week? I would really love to hear about it.
