I picked up my girls last night after they'd spent a week away with my mom. They actually spent the weekend with their dad, which I would think, they would enjoy.
Both of them were glued to me within seconds of my entering his house.
Then they presented me with these... because they missed me:
Rose picked out the pink ones and Grace picked out the red ones.
Yeah, my little girls can make me swoon sometimes too.
Sometime early last week, Mom told me that the girls were really scared when she would put them to bed.
I can understand that. They're in a place they're not familiar with.
Then Mom admitted that she let the girls watch the movie, Signs.
Are you freakin' kidding me?!
Now, I do allow my girls to watch movies that I can explain... so yeah, they've seen movies like E.T. . It freaks them out a little bit but they can handle it. But Signs?!?
That movie scared the crap outta me!
We're all trying to talk them down from that now. Thanks Mom!
I've been having difficulty getting Grace to brush her teeth on her own.
She's very impatient and the thought of brushing her teeth for at least a full minute leads to an all out thrown down of irritation on her part.
Then I found this:
Rose got a Cheetah Girls one and Grace went with MY personal fave:
(And yes, CBG, they even have KISS!)
Grace AND Rose were dancing in the bathroom last night, happily brushing their teeth. I was singing along too!
Thank GOD for creativity for parenthood.
It would be just my luck that a thunderstorm came rolling in right around bedtime last night.
Both girls are already freaked out and didn't want to leave my side for a single moment. So, with every crash of thunder, they were jumpy and totally losing it.
Then it hit me.
Music, with us girls, ALWAYS makes things better.
So, I played this:
And then proceeded to explain that the thunder was the "boom boom" and the lightning was the "pow".
They giggled and after some snuggles from Mom, went to sleep quick and fast.
But they did cuddle up in one bed together and held hands all night long.
Thank God for sisterhood too.
