Mother's Day singing at church
Thought I'd join M3's Fashion Friday challenge this week. Sometimes when Maimie chooses clothes, she picks an outfit that I would pick for her. Nothing crazy, jeans and a shirt. Other times, I wonder if she's serious.
This week she picked a brown tshirt from last year (that is really getting too small and needs to be retired) and then randomly grabbed out a little pale turquoise ruffled skirt with attached panties. My eyes widened as she groped around in the middle drawer until she found some pale pink leggings which she put on over the attached panties of the ruffled skirt. Before leaving the room she decided she needed socks. She only found 1 Belle sock and decided a plain light blue sock would match nicely...??? She chose pigtails (which she calls "Chinese hair") and a red barrette with a red rose bud. When we left for speech therapy, she put the bright pink/orange crocs on (the wrong feet, of course). Mikaela had an interesting take on her sister's ensemble. She said it was a happy outfit and made her think of bubblegum with the pink and blue.
We're starting to settle into the routine with Daddy's new job. It took a couple of days to get used to having company at lunch every day. Now we quite enjoy it! Maimie absolutely LOVES seeing Daddy come home and has a new lunch time tradition. I started buying cheese sticks for the older kids' lunches. They rarely touch them, but Maimie thinks they are great. When it's nearly time for lunch, she starts saying, "Cheese, Grommit" and heads for the fridge. She gets out two sticks of cheese so that she can share one of her cheeses with Daddy. It's really a hoot. She sits on the floor in front of the fridge while she opens both of the packages. They sort of peel down. When she gets one open and peeled half-way down, she flops it on the floor to start the other. Quite sanitary, I assure you. Then she grabs them by the opened cheese part before handing Daddy his cheese. Yummy!

Today when Daddy was leaving to go back to work after lunch, we had a quick smooch. Maimie started saying "oooh, yuck" then told me, "Don't kiss Daddy's mouth, that's awful!" heh, heh
