Well, we're getting ready to hit the road again. This time, to warm sunny Miami, FL! It's going to be 84 there this weekend. We're going to go to the Boat Show and then eat some authentic Cuban food...mmmmmmm. We're leaving very early in the morning so I've decided to put Kaylee to bed in her clothes tonight so we can just plop her in her car seat. The rest of us will have to get dressed! Needless to say, I won't be posting until after the weekend so to all you couples out there, have a Happy Valentines Day!
Jennah had her Valentines Day party at school today. When she got home, we went through her Valentines cards and I saw one from Matt (see previous Jennah's Diary post). Of course, I teased her about getting a card from her boyfriend as any of you moms would do! Below is our conversation:
Me: "Oh, I see you received a card from your boyfriend Matt!"
Jennah: "He's not my boyfriend, he's my ex-boyfriend."
Me: "What happened?"
Jennah: "Well, don't you know what an ex-boyfriend is?"
Me: "No, why don't you tell me what it is."
Jennah: "An ex-boyfriend is when the girl likes the boy but the boy doesn't like the girl." "I mean, he only likes the girl for a friend but not for a girlfriend."
Me: "Oh, I see."
Jennah: "So now I just wish he knew he was my ex-boyfriend and then I would be his girlfriend."
Too Cute, yet I still feel I should pack my bags for the teenage years!!
Jennah and I had a discussion this afternoon regarding her not having school next Monday. I told her she didn't have school because it was Presidents Day. Her response was: "Well, why can't the kids go to school to see the presidents?" She thought it was a day the the presidents go to the schools and that was why the schools were closed. So, tonight, I googled Presidents Day and we read about the meaning of it. She looked at me afterward and said "Well, that's funny that all the presidents have to have their birthday on the same day." I tried to explain it to her again but she just give me "the look." So, now that I've confused her, I guess we'll just enjoy the day off and maybe not mention the holiday when it arrives!!
The usual happenings today. Taco Bell for Dinner and not much else to report! Kaylee was pretty grumpy at therapy today - I think the long weekend is catching up with her. I had a headache all afternoon so I'm taking some Tylenol and hitting the pillow early tonight.
Well, we came home from Disney last night - how sad huh? Anyway, the kids had a blast. Jennah got to go on all the rides she had on her "mental list" and Kaylee shocked us by riding rides that I thought she'd never go on. She rode the kids roller coaster and loved it and went on the tea cup ride too as well as many others. I will say that it was nice to have Nonna & Randy (their grandmother & our friend) with us so they could sit out with Kaylee so we could enjoy the big kid rides. Oh, I might add that those of you who think those little "kid harness things" are an awful thing to have wrapped around your child, try going to a place like Disney World without one - you'll become a quick believer in them. I don't know what I'd do without ours. No child is going to sit in a stroller all day so we were glad to have it so Kaylee could "walk" around. We got the one that looks like a puppy dog backpack.
All in all, an excellent weekend yet it was hard to leave Mickey and his friends to come home to the daily grind this morning!
The greatest husband, dad, friend and computer guru! Relaxed, loving, and definitely the smartest guy I know. He also has a humorous side that shines unexpectedly!
My oldest: Jennah, our 9 yr old fashionista! Loves art, and fashion. Models for anything. Humorous yet serious at the same time. A very caring big sister and daughter. Laughable, loveable and knows no enemy - a complete girly girl.
My youngest: Kaylee, she's 5, my full time job, loves her big sister, very independent and hates it when she can't get "her way", being cute is her profession.
Annie and Tigger
Annie's our new little puppy. The world is her chew toy as well as her bathroom. I believe she's the reason people have wood floors. For now, her cuteness makes her tolerable! Tigger, our cat, he's the boss and he owns us. Need I say more.
