Last night at gymnastics, I let Katie stay a bit after her class to watch the big girls. She loves staying later when we don't have Timmy with us and she pretends to do all the same warmups they're doing. One of the very nice moms asked me if I wanted an irish potato and I declined. She was wondering aloud what she was going to do with them all since many of the moms had declined. Katie had made them at school yesterday and got to have them for snack and bring some home so she knew how yummy they were. Her eyes lit up. I told the mom that Katie would LOVE to have one if she didn't mind. She then told me, oh - they have whiskey in them - just a teeny bit though. My response? Oh, that's fine - we're Irish Catholic - she'll sleep better. What's wrong with me? Why was that my response? I don't even know these women. She laughed and all the big girls' moms nodded. They all agreed that just a teeny bit of whiskey was fine for a 3 year old. They must be Irish Catholic, too.
If you have a TWO-some you'd like to show off today, make sure to stop by Eight is Great and let Deanna know.
I had to work hard to coax a smile out of Mr. Handsome today. He had his 4 month shots yesterday and is pretty sleepy today. (Oh, and speaking of which - Timmy is now 16 lbs 4 oz (75%) and 26 1/2 inches (92%). His head is still in the 4oth percentile - incidentally Katie's stats were almost exactly the same at 4 months). I didn't have to do ANY coaxing of Katie though. In fact, she was VERY excited to wear green today. I had given her dad her green t-shirt and jeans to dress her in today and I had a sobbing Katie come upstairs half way through the process because she needed "to wear green pants for St. Patrick's Day." We compromised. I let her wear green pants that do not match her green shirt as long as she broke it up with a jean skirt. She agreed (grudingly). When she was all dressed she patted herself all over and told me, "THERE mommy, I'm all beautiful now!"
