This is a conversation I had with Madison today.

Before nap time...
I said the prayer.
Madison-Um mommy you forgot to pray for the soldiers.
Mom-I'm sorry that's' very important. Tonight I will make sure to pray for them.

Tonight before bed...

Mom-Dear God please be with the soldiers.

Madison-Um Mommy you are suppossed to say "Dear God please help the soldiers come home before christmas."

Mom-Yes that's a good thing to say. Who taught you that.

Madison-(very matter of factly) well Mrs. McBride tells us that all of the time.

So sweet!!!

No more princesses (at least for halloween:))

So I bought an Ariel costume that Madison just had to have and it was a 4-6 and too small so I am going to have to take it back. I then showed Madison her other options and she decided to be bat girl. HALELUJAH!!! So I got a super girl one for Allie. They look adorable. Madison LOOOOVES super heros and this is what I orginally wanted to do. It just took a little persuasion. So thank you to everyone who gave me suggestions. I appreciate it. Here's a picture.

Madison just has to be Ariel for Halloween so I thought it would be cute if Allie wore a flounder costume. However I have looked and I can only find baby sizes and I can't find a pattern to make one. Any ideas???

The Fair

I will have pics to post tomorrow.
We went to the fair with my in laws and Madison had a blast riding the rides! She had to be 48 inches tall to ride anything that she really wanted but she is exactly 42 inches so she had to ride the smaller rides. She was not happy. She kept asking us where the really fast rides were. She can't get enough of it. She defintely takes after her father.

consignment sale

I got all of this for $120. Not pictured is an outfit for Allie in the wash that is pink and brown and a pair of shoes that were listed as a size 8. I put them on Allie and they were a 7 and were too small. Needless to say Kendra took them home with her. New soccer shoes. An umbrella stroller and shoes for Ella. And a ton of new doll house stuff. My favorite outfit is the gap black blazer and skirt. It is sooo cute on Madison!!!

The joys of motherhood:)

My poor babie sare sick. Last night they didn't act remotely like they were going to be sick today. Allie threw up at 4 this morning and then it was Madison's turn at 10. They havent thrown up since but they havent eaten anything. Madison asked me earlier if when she feels better can she go back to school. I'm glad she loves it so much:) I hear the stomack bug is already going around. Last year in november is when it got really bad at sonshine school. Any way here are a few picks of my sick babies:)

PS Madison thought it was hilarious that I wasa taking their picture and she kept asking me to look at them:)

Madison's progress report:)

SO I love that Madison's teachers are going to start sending home a paper each friday saying how their week was!! Madison's first couple of weeks have been good. Madison loves school and talks about it all day long. On top of that she loves sonshine school thanks to Mandy and Jennifer!!! At school the paper said Madison made good choices and worked indepndently most of the time, particpates in group,etc. The one thing that wasnt the greatest is she got needs direction from teacher when interacting with others. Side note said "Sharing and taking turns are hard at times for her" I defintely know this about her in fact i wrote it on my first day paper. She is impatient like her mother:) Anyway she knows what will happen if that note appears again:) She also got a comment saying she was overheard talking to a friend that had some trash in her hand. Madison told her "Would you like me to get the trash can for you? I can help you throw all of that away" I told her how proud I was of her. She is my sweet impatient child and I love her for it! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
PS How do you get a child to stop lying? She has begun telling fibs sometimes stories. For example, she had a hole in her shirt and I asked her what happened and without hesitation she told me "___cut my shirt with the scissors" I asked her if she was telling the truth and she said "no I caught it on the door" ps Lets just say I found out that my husband used to lie very easily about things when he was younger. Oh boy am I in trouble when my kids are teenageers!!! I love them to death but they can be trouble when they want to. Of course they are sweet when they want to be too!

Should I take her to the doctor???

This may seem like a really stupid question to those of you with kids. About 3 weeks ago Allie got her head smashed (on accident by her sister) on the tile floor. Her lip bled some and all day she was messing with her teeth. Well just in the past couple of days I noticed her tooth is turning black. It doesnt appear to be loose. Should I take her in or not worry about it?
WHen I was about her age I fell and both of my teeth turned black. Those of you I'm sure have noticed that my front 2 teeth are very discolored. They have been this way since my permanent teeth came in. The reason they came in like this was from the trauma to the baby teeth. Sounds strange but it does happen this way according to the dentist. I guess I am praying hers doesnt come out like mine because my teeth have traumatized me. I have never been able to afford to get them fixed (venners or something) They have been the source of a lot of self esteem issues for me!!! (and still is) I guess I will just start saving now so I can get them fixed for her if it happen:)
SO back to my question. Do I need to take her to the doctor/dentist???
