Look, I thought I would do a post to prove to myself that my kids on occasion do get along! Seems like lately all I am doing is being referee!
Yesterday after breakfast and spending some time reading to James, Kirstyn looked at me and said, "I need to call Mimi."
Okay, no problem sis. I dialed and handed over the phone.
K: Mimi, I want to spend the night somewhere and I don't want to have to go to Arkansas today.
Mimi: I guess I better talk to Grandpa and call you back.
K: Mommy, Mimi is going to call me back. I hope she lets me spend the night, cause it takes a long time to get to Arkansas and I really want to sleep somewhere else tonight.
Me: Point taken.
Well, guess what. Kirstyn made her point and was able to spend the night with Mimi and Grandpa for the first time since James was born. I hope they let her spend the night again soon.
Also, yesterday was a pretty exciting day in my little blogging world. I was going through in my reader and noticed that I had won a Tees for Change from mizfitonline and then I went by the office to take Kirstyn to her MiMi and I got a package in the mail from Quaker that I had won from Super Healthy Kids! I was extra excited when I opened the box and found that in addition to the Oatmeal Pancake Mix that I had won they had also sent me a heart shaped mold for pancakes, a new whisk, and a wide spatula for flipping my pancakes! I plan to make heart shaped pancakes for breakfast on valentines day. We like to add blueberries to pancakes but I think in honor of valentines day, I will add chopped strawberries. I'll let you know how it turns out!
So tell me, do you get as excited as I do when you get something unexpected in the mail?
