We've been dealing with a lot of sickness in our household for the past several weeks. Fortunately I've been well, but the rest of the family... my hubby, both girls, and our cat, have not been so well. Last week we just decided to take the week off and have a chance to rest and recover. But this week we are finally back in to school! Hopefully I'll have some pictures to post by the end of the week.
I've got to share something funny my daughter said to me over the weekend... we were at the store, and I was holding my youngest daughter's hand. She's 7, and is at the point where she doesn't want to hold my hand in public. She'd rather walk a step or two ahead of me, as I guess that way she feels more grown up. When I asked her why she didn't want to hold my hand she replied she wanted to be like her big sister, and not have to hold my hand anymore. Well, my older daughter still likes to hold my hand when we go out. So when she heard her younger sister say this, she came back and held my other hand. I thought that was so sweet... and then she said, "Mommy, do you know why I want to hold your hand now?" I thought she was going to say something sweet, but instead she said, "Because I know it won't be much longer that I'll be able to hold your hand... before we know it, instead you'll be holding a walker." That stinker! :-) At least being sick hasn't hurt her sense of humor!
