A great day!

 

Today has been a very typical, clean the house-do the laundry day! Ella has been my helper all day! -Not the annoying get away from me kind, either. She is actually in a cute helpful stage, and I am loving it!!
SO, for lunch she wants mac and cheese...we don't have any easy kind so I make her the homemade kind. I am so not sure she will eat it, so I give her a plate, she takes a bite, and raises her hands above her head and claps!!! I am NOT kidding!??!?! Who got a clap over lunch today??? I feel like the luckiest Mom EVER!! So ya, I just want you all to know I am looking for a standing ovation at dinner. ...I'll let you know!:)

Such a sweetie, your Ella! Every mom needs a Great Day at least twice a month to keep us sane.

Alrighty, I'm obsessed with you. Yep, I know I'm a terrible 2nd best friend (cuz well Brandy is first) and sister-in-law cuz I haven't called you or talked to you at all in about a year, but I read your blog everyday, sometimes twice a day and I MISS YOU! I hope all is well and seriously if you need anything, call me, because I'm retarded and can't get myself to turn my thought of calling you into an action of dialing the dang-dang phone!!!! hehe, I love you!

Misty said...

OH... P.S. The reason I'm obsessed is the pictures, haha. You're so talented, I need you to do a family picture of us, and some new Gid shots...but not until after you're all settled with your new beautiful boy!

I'm still smiling at the image of the wonderful ovation for the mac and cheese! Love it. Let us know if the kids do the wave at dinner! hee hee!

Standing ovations are awesome! Maybe you can get her to clap when you clean the toilet too! Maybe I should get your recipe for the mac and cheese...I could use a clap now and then!! Love you

This is a wonderful moment. You better write about it in your journal! I love the clapping. These are parent paydays!
I also love the umbrella and those cute ponies she must have a good grandma!
