The Princess Proclaims.....
"My mind went on vacation but now it's back!"
"Mom, when I grow up, I'm going to be a Princess Ballerina Fairy Mermaid Astronaut."
"Mom, I'm really sad right now. I wanted to marry Prince Eric. I want to have a real baby. I want to fall in love."
"Mom, I love learning about God and singing about God. Everyone needs to learn about God!"
"Mom, when we say I Love You to each other, it makes my heart sing!"
"Dad, I have to tell you something. Did you know when you eat, your ears wiggle?"

I had to laugh because yesterday morning she was full of energy. "Mom, lets do this." "Mom, lets do that." "Mom....." I finally looked at her and said, "Emma, you are being annoying." Without skipping a beat she smiled and said, "Yeah, and annoying starts with the letter A." Well, at least I know she is paying attention!

There is a local Christian school that also offers a home school/in school program starting in kindergarten. I've decided to give the preschool home schooling a try to see if I have what it takes to home school The Princess next year. E is excited...and I have lots to do. I'm going to try to have things up and running next week. We'll see what I'm made of here. I'm not the most patient person, but I know that patience is already inside me from the Holy Spirit. I'm going to pray that God will work this patience to the surface as I attempt to teach The Princess here at home.

There are many reasons why E loves her dad. He gets right down on the floor and plays games with her, builds sand castles with her at the beach, is the guest at many of her "birthday parties", lets her decorate his hair/body with any number of barrettes, jewelery, snuggles with her as they watch tv, has pillow fights with her, pretty much anything she wants. Her works very hard so that I can be a stay-at-home mom, but when he is home, he really enjoys spending quality time with her.
Fast forward to this past weekend. E and I just got out of our pool and are sitting in the sun drying off. E is nestled in the middle of her inner tube floaty that she likes to snuggle in when she is done swimming. She turns to me and says, ""Mom, I know some kids don't have dads, but I've got the best dad in the world." In that brief split second before she continues, I'm thinking, she's going to say something about how much fun he is to play with because we sometimes call him her "play mate" or something along those lines. No, as she continues with her thought, it was all I could do not to break out in laughter. "He picks up lots of dog poop from Jake and Luke." Of all the wonderful things that her daddy does, picking up dog poop apparently ranks #1. Out of the mouths of babes.
