Long Day

Evie was so excited to go to school this morning. She was leaping and skipping down the sidewalk to get into the classroom. Her smile quickly fades once she remembers that her pal ,Mommy, will not be accompanying her past the gate at the door. Of course, she just does this little dramatization for my benefit because she is fine within seconds of my departure.

   I spent WAY more time than necessary in Hobby Lobby this morning because it was so busy and the help was seriously overwhelmed. It's pretty sad when even Hobby Lobby is not a tranquil shopping spot. I got a few things taken care of including mailing our Christmas cards. That's such a job but I love sending them and I love receiving them! Evie is also enjoying checking the mail these days and loves to look at all the children on the cards.

   I was so happy to see Evie helping the teacher organize the books when I picked her up. She is such a good little helper!

    Evie is still a coughing fool and just cannot settle herself down. I feel badly for her but I need the break more than she does. Poor little thing would fall asleep when I rocked her but would start hacking away as soon as I put her down on her back. Maybe I should put the crib at a slight incline to help her sleep.

    She was still in a pretty good mood even a little silly!We had to get out of the house so we picked up some dinner at Pei Wei which is one of my very favorites. Evie was not impressed but she did drink enough liquids today to float away to a land far away.

     Mommy was ready for bed by 6:00 but Evie was still going strong. She requested a cracker and we sat on the floor in the kitchen eating crackers and drinking "tea" AKA Chocolate Milk. It turned out to be my favorite part of the day holding my sweet girl.


  1. Evie looks SO cute in her C.of.C shirt - precious! Glad she is feeling better - hopefully that cough will go away soon!

  2. Hope she is feeling better soon.
