Yesterday was an interesting, busy day.
Rosie had her Christmas party, to which I went, of course. She's such a sweetheart. She's so quiet at school (almost never at home, where she really lets loose), so it's always interesting to watch how her personality manifests at school. She's got these beautiful blue eyes that are wide open and soaking up the going-ons. She's not quite sure what to do, but she watches everything from a bit off to the side. She accepts hugs when given them, but she rarely initiates interactions with the other students. I'm glad that at home she is loud, full of questions, and busy; you'd never know the home Rosie exists based on the school Rosie, but I adore her, wherever she is.
The afternoon was as busy as the morning; we got a letter from Lil's school nurse saying Lil needed an eye exam, so after school off we went. And now Lil has glasses. It was an interesting exam, to say the least, as Lily's ability to sit still and focus (and understand the prompts) are, well, not the best. The eye doc was great with her, though.
Lily's the proud owner of two pair of glasses, one Sponge Bob, and one Mario Brothers, her two favorite cartoons in the world. And I learned that her favorite color is no longer pink; it's yellow!
The evening was every bit as interesting, as Rosie's loose tooth decided to twist in its socket and had lots of tears going down her cheeks. And her running around the room with a tissue to her mouth, all while screaming.
I convinced her, after showing her this photo of her tooth, to let me help her get it the rest of the way out.
And here's our after photo, with the tears finally dried and everything all better.
I'm hoping for a less dramatic day today. Hee. Sure. :-)
Happy Friday folks! Starting this afternoon, the kids and I are home together through the third of January. Hah, the geekifying we've got planned! :-)
