Winter Weather

Well I haven't had much to say lately!!

Today Maddie's school was closed because we were supposed to have ice, but it hasn't happened yet. Now they are saying the ice will be tomorrow. I guess we'll see. I just found out that they will be delayed 2 hours tomorrow. Yay, we get to sleep late!

Maycee did have school today and Maddie's friend invited her to play for a couple of hours so I still had a couple hours to myself. :)

Last week I was in Gymboree and someone commented on Maycee's hairbows and asked if I sold them. She wanted to know if I had a website which I do, but it doesn't have anything on it. I bought the domain name at least 6 months ago. http://www.threelittledivas.com/ Actually it is mine and Ashley's, but we never did anything with it so it sits, parked with nothing on it. Anyway back to Gymboree, since I didn't have a website she wanted my email and # to get together to make her some bows. Then another lady explained 2 things that she wanted bows to go with and gave me money to make her bows and drop them back at Gymboree for her to pick them up. I gave my email and # to several people and left with 3 bow orders.

Also, a couple weeks ago one of Ashley's friends on Myspace contacted me to make her an outfit her her little cutie. I made it for her and she has ordered 2 more.

All of this has finally pushed me over the edge to start trying to sell some of my creations like lots of people have been trying to convince me to do :} Soooo from now on I will be selling custom clothes and hairbows from http://www.threelittledivas.blogspot.com/. Ashley will also be selling hairbows from this same site. It is a work in progress. I am slowly posting pictures of what we have made in the past. Check it out and let me know what you think!

The girls haven't been up to much this past week. We did sign Maycee up to play soccer and Maddie up to play softball. They both should start practice in the next couple of weeks. Maddie decided after 4 seasons on the same team that she doesn't like soccer. Guy was her assistant coach and was probably ready for a break too. (He didn't say this. I'm just putting words in his mouth, but it seemed like a lotta work to deal with some *not all of them* ungrateful parents.)

Maycee has been a little pill for a few days. She is suddenly very hard headed and she won't admit she did anything wrong. She has a story to explain everything.

The other night when I found her with blue sticky mess all over her face after she was supposed to be in bed sleeping, (it was obviously blue candy cane) she insisted to me and Guy that she wasn't eating candy after we told her to go to bed. What actually happened was she went to bed and it was laying on her pillow opened and she was turning her head back and forth to get comfortable and it smeared all over her face!!!

Along with the fact that she hasn't done anything wrong in the last two weeks, she is tattling on everyone else. When we tell her to stop tattling she just insists that it's "the truth." It's hilarious, no matter what we try she doesn't understand that we aren't arguing about whether or not she lying. She gets so upset because "IT'S THE TRUTH." I guess will have to keep working on that one.

I was just talking to my friend Jenna this morning about how much Maddie has grown up. It makes me sad. She used to say and do all the funny things that Maycee does now. I wish I had written that stuff down. She is very serious now and works really hard to be grown up and not say silly things, but Jenna reminded me of one of Maddie's 'little girl' funnies. One day when she was about 2 1/2 she was in my room when I was getting dressed. She picked up my bra and asked "is this your brot for your boots?" I'm not sure why, but it made me laugh so hard that day.

A few other Maddie funnies that I thought of were she once told Papa to "put it up" when he was holding Maycee when she was a few weeks old. She felt that way about Maycee for a while. Heck she probably still does sometimes. Who doesn't wish they could have all the attention sometimes? :)

There was also a time when Guy worked out of town during the week and her and I ate alot of pizza (hey, cut me some slack, I was working full time and taking care of her and Maycee) and every time the doorbell would ring no matter who was there or what time of day it was she would run to the door screaming "PizzaMan!"

But the best Maddie funny of all was when Ashley took her to the scrapbook store to see Lauren (she worked there). Ashley watched Maddie and Maycee while I worked. Maycee was a newborn and Ashley was feeding her in the crop room. Maddie was playing in the little playroom right there, but she couldn't see her because it had a half door to keep the kids in. Maddie was just a little over 2 and had pooped in her pullup. That would have been fine except she had decided she didn't like it where it was and she pulled it out and "wrote" all over the walls and toys with it. Disgusting!!!! Poor Lauren had to clean up the playroom while Ashley cleaned up Maddie. When they were leaving they had to pass the playroom and Maddie repeated Ashley and said "Sorwy Waurwen." I wonder if Ashley ever went back to that particular scrapbook store.

I'm gonna try to think of more of Maddie's funnies and post about them when I do so that I have them recorded. I want to be able to tell them to her when she is all grown up!!

No pictures today. We haven't done anything to take pictures of!

You know she might not be as excited about the "poop" story. She appears to be your serious child, and that's OK too. April-I absolutely adore your stories. I can't keep up with how many people I have shared the "she eats boobies" one. love aunt kat

April said...

Yeah you are probable right. She's not gonna like the poop story.

Thanks for letting me know you like my stories. It's nice to know a few people are enjoying it.
