Paige Shares Because She Cares

While at Costco, Paige was eating some hot dog bun.

She took it out of her mouth to share with Eden next to her.

Eden said, "No Thank you Paige.  You keep it."

Then Eden gave a big YAWN.

And Paige shoved the piece of bread into Eden's mouth.

How kind.

Two-Minute Thinking

Eden has this great plan today to spend less and save more. She went a step further to say she planned on doing extra chore tomorrow to earn more money to save. 

"I'm going to wake up tomorrow and do all my chores and school early so I can do some extra chores to earn money!"

Later on...

"So mom, I have this thing called two-minute thinking where I think of an idea that I think is really exciting minutes. Then I don't think it's exciting anymore. I don't think my chore idea is very exciting anymore..."

Figured that wouldn't last long.

Jammie Picture

Molly woke up in the middle of the night saying,

"Mom!! Will you take a picture of me with my jammies on?"

I convinced her that it was the middle of the night and that I could take one once the sun came up and there was light.

She woke up this morning and wants her jammie picture.

How to Get Around Clean Up

Leila really wanted to play dress up with her dolls.  But to find the items she wants she would have to dump out the box of things...which also means cleaning up the box of doll things when she is finished.  Leila's way around it:

"Dad, could you dump out this box of doll stuff so you can clean it up after?"

Not very discrete.

Sunday Fit Bit

Eden looks at dad's fit bit to see how many steps he's taken today...

Eden: "Dad, that's way too many steps for a Sunday."
Dad: "What are we? Jewish?"

Apparently, we need to all wear fit bits on Sunday to make sure we keep the Sabbath Day holy and don't take too many steps...


After our "family fun night" to the movie theater to watch Zootopia...the girls were scared to death.  Leila's prayer tonight...

"...and please bless that we won't have nightmares from Zootopia tonight."

Molly's Bad Dreams

Molly on occasion has a bad dream. I thought I'd write them down.

One night Molly woke up scrambling to the front of her bed yelling "There's a frog in my bed!" I had to take her out, relax her, and assure her there was no frog in her bed but she had a bad dream. When returning to bed she double checked just in case and said, "oh he's gone."

Another night she was yelling when she woke up and when I went to get her she said, "Dad had a whole cupcake and wouldn't share with me!!"

She had another bad dream about dad one night. She was yelling "Dad!" So dad went in to see her. He said "What's wrong?" She eventually said, "I want mom!" He came and got me and I came in and she told me "I wanted to play a game and dad wouldn't play with me
