Read across America week

Once again I have proved to my children what a cool yet strict mommy I can be. Monday is Funky Hair day at school. After some discussion with Ms. Kitty as to what we could do we decided on wash out purple hair dye :) so now my beautiful girls have purple hair...well kinda. Eldest looks like a witch with her all purple hair.
It looks really...evil :)
Middlest got shreeks in her hair just like mommy with what was left after we did Eldest's hair
it's subtle and cute though purple hair and Middlest just dont mix... maybe a blue next time you know when she is 16.
Babygirl.. I mean BigGwrl was happy to laugh at her sisters... and she gets to go swimming with mommy everyday. Who wouldn't be happy with that? She also got to pick out frinkle cupcakes for dinner tomorrow night. The rest is a surprise!  Have a great evening and don't forget tonight is Closing Ceremonys for the Olympics

Eldest's Layout

This is a photo of Eldest's very first solo layout. It's for a blogger group called Kids Can Scrap. The theme for Feb. was love.
I was so proud of her!! She worked so hard on it.

Thursday, February 25, 2010


I am pooped. I worked soo hard today. Making scrapbook pages is hard work.
Nah I'm just kidding. I stayed up to late last night and the night before.
Plus the whole swimming laps thing. I am beat. I am so ready for the weekend. Oh wait I have errands and swimming and bread to make tomorrow.
Well I WAS getting excited about bed. Middlest is crying cause apparently Eldest tired to boss her. Middlest has very VERY delicate feeling. Especially right before bed.
Oh a happy note Middlest finished her FIRST 100 piece puzzle!!!!!!!

Oh those sweet angelic little girls

My sweet little perfect girls. They love each other so much. They love to snuggle and support each other as sisters should.
               Then one of them will feel a bit mischivious, It's almost always Babygirl or Big Daddy who starts it.
It starts with a tackle and a giggle. Eldest is Babygirls favorite to tackle.
Then Eldest issues a verbal it was LOOK BRAT I'M TRYING TO WATCH NCIS! Go beat up on Middlest.
At this point Middlest goes huh? We are beating up on Eldest? GET HER!!! And they tackle her, It turns into a free for all of dogs barking, laughing, yelling and trash talk.Until they get side tracked by something else.
I did want to show you this one last picture.

doesn't it look like Eldest is being attacked by a black phantom?

Chocolate incident #2

in the room reading babe..
clip clip clip clip
hi there mommy!!
Hi there chocolate face..what did you get into?
umm nufing...
are you sure cause you have chocolate breath and a chocolate face?
oh well dare was dis chocolate that looked funny and it was open so I went ahead and eatted it. So my baby wouldn't...
oh okay.. sure..
how about we have grahms and frosting for dessert!!
opening the frosting can... and finding it half empty with tiny little finger marks...
Babygirl... Why is there no frosting?
Ummm i dunno I fink Genesis ate it...
Does Genesis have little girl fingers?
Oh. No. umm I finked I eatted some.... i forgetted to tell you.. im sowwey
Well next time you might want to use a spoon so you dont get caught next time.


Today it has finally hit me that my baby is almost four. My BABY.
First. Could is possibly have been four years since I had her??

Second: How can four years have gone by so fast ?
This is my baby. She has just gotten so big. Some times a little to big.. for her britches at least.

So here we are planning her Fairy Birthday and I'm wondering where the time with my baby went.
Sometimes I stop and wonder why I quit working but then I remember.. I looked into her eyes one day and I realized she is probably the last baby I was going to have and I wanted to spend all the time I could with her and her sisters.
 Enjoying the short time I had with them before they went to school and grew up. She is my constant companion. We have a special bond that no one else has...not that I dont have a special bond with her sisters...ours is just diffrent. We do almost everything together from cooking and cleaning to errands and special outtings. She is my little buddy. My almost four year old and not my baby anymore little buddy.
*sigh* What is a mommy to do?

Monday, February 22, 2010


well apparently hitting pinatas was to voilent and to many precious angels got hurt so now they all have pull strings. Whats the fun in that?! First the blind folds go and now the stick!  Second. When deciding on healthier alternatives for filling said piniatas Some people (me) suggested Rings, Necklaces, Bracelets and just a little bit of candy...gotta have some candy right? Others (who will remain nameless) thought filling it with granola or trail mix would be an acceptable alternative. I wanna know what kind of wierd crazy parties this person went to as a child cause i didnt get to do to many pinatas but I can only imagine the mutiany that would follow a pinata full of trail mix. Seriously can you picture that?!!

If you give a mommy some seeds...

apparently i am no better than the moose in if you give a moose a muffin. It is soo nice outside that while driving to the hardware store I happened to mention that it was about planting season and we (the girls and myself) would LOVE to go look at the seeds and bulbs while Big Daddy was getting what he needed to fix our door...which will not shut. BTW he got me the GREATEST door mat EVER! It says GOT DIRT how funny is that a door mat that says got dirt hahha I love it! anyways back to my story. He groaned at me and said hey baby do you remember " IF YOU GIVE A MOOSE A MUFFIN"? ARE YOU CALLING ME A MOOSE? Of course he wasn't but he got a good laugh out of that. No apparently If he was to let me buy seeds then i'd want potting soil to go with it, then i'd realize he still hasn't built me my garden...then i'd ralize i need manure, more soil, and a watering system,.. Then i'd notice i don't enough seeds to fill the garden...and thus the circle grows and grows... And we just got done at the grocery store and needless to say he tried very bravely not to cry when he saw the total. I love him. In the End though he said i could get 10$ worth of seeds and whatever but that was it so we now will be starting our seeds.. don't worry we got a starter set to baby the seeds until the weather gets better.. and my garden gets made :P... Also while we looked at seeds we found KILLER PLANTS so we had a little science lesson about what they were and how they worked. Middlest decided she REALLY needed one for her teacher so we had to buy a Venus Fly Trap and we are going to torture them tonight with Little Shop of Horrors he he he he I am SUCH a GREAT mom

Simple is better

Sometimes having a simple family day can be more fun than a big facy trip and Today was the kind of day that reminds you of it.
It got to around 60 which after being in the 20's and 30's was soo warm.. so some of us went wading in the FREEZING water.. and some stayed safely on shore.

Where did our pooh sticks go??

Now how cool is this?! We saw Kyiackers (spelling)
in a stream that barely gets deeper than 4 foot!!

Middlest broke her bike and so we gave her rides on the platform for babygirls seat. We dont bring is for family trips just mommy trips

Babygirl had to have her turn to sit on the back too !

Is that not soo sweet? Daddy and babys enjoying the sun and eachother.

A happy day

Today the weather was beautiful and WARM!! So we fought our running away demons and took the girls to the bike path to ride bikes today. I got one mile on my bike today.. was a little rusty and we had the girls. We had so much fun!! We went to our special spot and did a little wading and played pooh sticks. Then we got to go to Mellow Mushroom for lunch!!! Now that was fun! We love yummy Cheesy Pizza and there pizza is a special dough that we can eat! We planned stuff for babygirls Birthday and have a great family time!! We also go a lovely nappy in and who doesn't love a good nap?! After we got up and started talking about what to have for dinner our T called. Today was besties Birthday and she hadn't gotten her party. Since they were on thier way home we hurriedly got a party assembled at Besties Favorite restraunt ( they have yummy cheese and peanut butter and jelly pizza!! We she got there the girls all got goodie bags to play with and the adults got to talk. I LOVE spening time with T!! The guys were talking politics and we were talking about girl stuff when we noticed Big daddy starting to tell jokes... This is usually a warning sign his suger is a bit high. We were the only people left in the restraunt so we didnt have to worry about being to loud. We were having cake by this time and T and I had requested water for big daddy and explained why she needed to keep it coming . He started telling blond jokes!! really bad ones haha so everytime he did besties dad would holler for more water. the girls were running around we had offered the wait staff cake so all of them lines up and were cutting off huge pieces of cake. It was so much fun. Just the kind of evening you want to have with family and friends. I thank God for times and days that we get to spend with such amazing people. Its nice when you have friends that you can share everything with and have so much fun with. Sorry about the misspelling and any other off things. Indie has decided that my lap is her special spot again today. awww. She loves me!!!

Ash Wednesday

Today we went to a new church for our Ash Wednesday service. Now right now I'm into the whole dating churches thing but i'm still a little gun shy. It's been hard to find one that fits all of us. We've learned a lot about Churchs and what to look for, do they have a good Childrens program, are they friendly, too conservitive, all that kind of thing. Eldest is getting to the age that we need to look for one that has a good confirmation program. A lot to consider. We talked to this new Church about that last night. This new one is a Lutheran Church big Daddy used to go to way back when. Their Confirmation program is WOW. It takes 3 years! 3 years 6-8th grades!! A lot of community service. A lot of parent involment. Apparently the "Church" loses 75% of kids after confirmation and they never return after that and with this program since they include families it has drastically reduced those numbers. Kinda crazy. Then thier child program... all the kids birth-5th grade are together and all work out of the same book learning the same things kinda intresting. But they were VERY friendly. HOWEVER it was the service that kinda threw me for a loop. Now this Lutheran Church has communion for babtised people and all that I was able to recive communion but the kids were not which I don't agree with and we had some trouble with the girls getting thier feelings hurt. I was looking foward to the girls hearing a nice Lenten sermon and learning more about why we celebrate Lent then the message was on Jonah. I'm not sure what that has to do with Lent other than following God's directions. but anyways I now have a lot to think about and consider.

Adventures is sourdough day 6

Well Steve turned out GREAT! I think it needs to set out longer and get more sour. But Holy Moly that was a GREAT dough to work with. It was so soft and silky. I let eldest knead the dough for a bit and I had to fight her to be able to get it back. It was so nice. It didn't rise as much as I had hoped it would... i think our house might be a little cool. Because as soon as it hits to oven it exploded much like the King Cake yesterday. Anyways here are the pictures of the bread Steve has turned into so far.
How Pretty!!

We should have let it cool a little longer.. but we didn't
who can resist fresh bread? No one in our house... they start smelling bread and I magically have three girls all staring in the stove going is it done yet? is it now? mommy ? mommy? mommy? is it done?

See what I mean? No one can resist.

SNOW! Kinda

It snowed last night!! Woohoo it was so pretty with our whole 1/8 of an inch. At least the kids enjoyed seeing some snow and getting to play in it with Big Daddy.
Babygirl loves to stomp the ice!

Babygirl and Middlest stomping the ice behind mommy's car. How sweet!!

Pruty huh?
I love the serinity and beauty of the world covered in snow. I'd like a little more just not as much as Virginia got.

adventures in sourdough day 5

Well i forgot to take pictures before I divided the mixture and then fed Steve. Steve would be the name a follower from FB recommended and the children ruled it must be so. I think it mostly had to do with the man with picked Steve. Regardless. Steve it is. Steve looked pretty much the same he did yesterday. Middlest said it smells like yuck. And it does. haha However I apoligize for the pictures. I was busy making .....
King Cake!! I wasn't sure it was going to turn out well since it didnt rise so much. HOWEVER once I put it in the oven it EXPLODED! So we will have that to look foward to tomorrow.. especially since they have cancled school tomorrow...again... for 1/2 and inch of snow. We better get a ton tonight thats all i'm going to say!!
going crazy here

Valentines day!!

Today was Valentines Day! yea. Hahahah. We gave our gifts and cards and such on Friday. Big Daddy and I got each other pictures of each other this year. When we all got family Pictures done the photographer forgot to take some of Big Daddy and I and since we take pictures we never get any together. So he knew I really wanted some. The girls got LOTS of candy as children ought to. They also got special shirts. So today there wasn't much in the way of gifts and such. We made the girls pink heart shaped pancakes and pink scrambled eggs. Those were a little difficult to swallow. Then I forced Big Daddy to watch squishy movies all day. However he did dishes and laundry and avoided most. hahah. We had a great Valenties day weekend filled with togetherness. We cleaned house. It doesn't much look like it now. As any house with 3 kids would. We did nothing but enjoy our times as a family and watch movies and the Olympics.
How was your weekend? Did you get good or thoughtfull gifts or really bad ones.

adventures in sourdough day 4

today is day 4 we already have bubbles and we are now looking for it to be "frothy". Well it's getting a little stinky but in a good way I hope and it's definatly getting thicker.. this is disgusting but it's kinda the consistancy of really thick snot. I know i said it was gross. :)
 so here are todays pictures....
Notice the hooch? also the smaller bubbles? I hope this means it's getting frothy and not dying.

see the smaller bubbles? it's different from yesterdays so im excited!! I think Wednesday I'm going to try making sourdough bread!! Tuesday is Cream Cheese King Cake!

65 Roses

65 roses is what young children often call Cystic fibrosis. It is also the name of a documentary about the Journey of a young women named Eva Markvoort. Eva is a 23 year old from Vancouver B.C. she has done alot to raise awareness about CF and how much of a need there is for Organ Donor's especially in Canada. She is an amazing young woman. I know i've had a lot of posts lately about CF and they aren't funny but the life of  CF patient isn't funny. It's heart breaking and tough. With Ms. Kitty in the hospital last week (she is FINALLY OUT BTW) and now Eva is losing her battle with CF it's been on my mind lately. Sharing how I feel is really hard right now. Losing Eva who is someone i've come to know and love is hard because it reminds me in a more realistic fashion that it is enevitable.  We are praying for you Eva. You have changed the world with your love.

my sourdough journey day 3

Okay today was exciting!! Well Sourdough wise hahaha I have several pictures for you
I'm not sure if I explained the methods or the recipe in my previous posts
1 large non metallic container with a lid
1 cup of warm water
1 cup of flour
add the flour and water into container cover loosely so air can get into container.
Thats it
the next day you pour 1/2 out (or give it away) and then add 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 of water every day until it starts bubbling good. at this point leave it out and use it and continue to feed daily or put it in the fridge and feed it once a week.
 Not to much to be scared of.
So on to today.
This is day 3 where we should start to be able to see some action taking place. However it might take longer depending on where you live.
This is what I saw when I went to feed.

The black arrow is the hooch.. a liquid that is a bit like beer but not so dont drink it ! It is harmless either pour it off or mix it in.

The blue arrow is some of the bubbles we are supposed to be seeing!!

I have a more close up picture.
This is soo exciting we haven't killed it!! Our little mixture is thriving.. I suppose we ought to name it.

This is the close up see the hooch and bubbles?

 This is inside our container. See all the little bubbles? That means our mixture? batter? is growing just as it should!!
Whew! It's a little nerve wracking... can you imagine what's going to happen we we have to eat it?

my sourdough journey day 2

I re read  the directions last night just to make sure I was doing everything right.
Last night I measured out about 1/2 of the mixture and then added in a 1/2 c bread flour and a 1/2 water.
It is starting to look thicker than it did the night before so hoepfully i'm doing something right.

snitcher snitcher

Sourdough bread

I kill things. Plants mainly, well fish too... they just don't seem to survive our house..well with the exception of on little plant that I can not seem to kill no matter what. It was given to me as a end of the year present the year Rose was born and it is still alive no matter how often I forget to water it. However that all being connfessed I have started a sourdough bread starter. can you start a starter? Anyways. I am hoping to not kill it and start maing some yummy sourdough from it. Who does like sourdough bread toasted in the morning with yummy seedless raspberry jelly on it.. yummmmmm... so today is day 1 I will post pictures daily until it has either died or formed and gone to live in the fridge. It is a simple recipie of 1 cup flour and 1 cup water. you mix them together and allow to ferment on the counter feeding it daily. Good luck to me and now I must run for I must get to moms house before the snow starts again. There is nothing like Alabamaians in the snow. Panic soon follows!

To Write Love on her Arms Day.

To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.
To Write Love On Her Arms Day is a day where anyone can write the words love on their arms, to support those who are fighting against depression and those who are trying to recovering. On this day, just write love on your arms, and show it off, other people will ask why you have love written on your arms, and you tell them you are supporting to write love on her arms day, and how its benefiting a non profit organization helping stop depression, and make love the movement ♥

We all know people who suffer from depression. Depression is not just having a bad day, you can't "just cheer up". It goes much deeper than that. It's drowning in the ocean.  I wrote this last year before they started a new medicine, and to be honest it wasn't as bad then as it had been before... Depression is scarey.

Falling again

I can feel myself sinking again.
Im seeking relief in chocolate and peanut butter.
Taking Tylonl pm to sleep again.
It doesn't help.
The walls close in.
The noises are to much.
The clutter is to much.
I know im the man that keeps asking God for help
but ingores the forms it comes in.
How do you explain that you can't function?
You hide in absorbing projects.
Trying to be normal knowing you can't
Your loves ones yearn for the person that used to be.
You yearn for the person that you know you used
to be.
Where are am I ?
Why can they not find the Me I should be.

Great Strides

okay people. I am saying it now and I expect you to hold me accountable. Are you ready????
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is having the Great Strides 10k on May 2 at 1pm. I am going to run/walk it.
My goal will be to RUN at least part of it. I'm not sure how im going to get my knees ready for this but I have a dr.s appt coming up and you better belive that question is going to come up.  A 10k isn't alot I know but I am there to support a friend and I will do this.
             As some of you know Ms. Kitty has CF. She is one of the nicest and sweetest and most kind hearted people i've ever met. As you know she has been in the hospital for the last 2 1/2 weeks. We've spent so much time together and have really grown close. She is part of our family, crazy that it is :)
If working toward running in a 10k race at least part of the way will help raise money for CF reasearch I am so there. She has to go through so much. Is it so hard for me to give up one afternoon for her? Money is easy to give.. Time, blood and sweat are love.

he loves me

it's Valentines week. Love is in the air. Big Daddy is going all out this year. Usually Valentines day isn't THAT big of a holiday in our house. Just some candy or something. We are still at that stage that a Valentines date is kinda out of the question because of babysitters ect. We get eachother gifts and sometimes have an after the kids go to bed date but just not anything big. Well as you know he bought me pictures of us for Valentines day and all week he has been sending me E-Valentines sometimes three or four a day. It's so sweet. I love it. I'm wierd i like being reminded that he's thinking about me and when I get that mail ding I get all happy and excited and when I see e-card from Big Daddy waiting for me in big black letters it just makes my heart swell. I am sooo lucky to have such a caring and loving hubby!!

Superbowl and a naked baby

As usual I forgot to post over the weekend. So here is my catch up. Saturday I worked at WiseScrappers while Big Daddy and Grandparents took the girls to the schools Carnival they had a blast!! Middlest came by Wise and worked to work on her Valentines Box and told me all about all the cool stuff she got to do. Then after work I had a dinner with Ms. Kitty (who we snuck out of the hospital) and Mrs. Tea and her kiddos. We went to Po' Boys cause Ms. Kitty had never had a Po'boy!! WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO???? It was sooooooooo good! And even though it's not Fat Tuesday yet I gave in and bought a King Cake. Ohh it was soo good!! I have to say it was the best king cake I've EVER had! Well except for mine :) So the next morning We are getting ready to go take our couple's pictures (big Daddy and mine's Valentines gift to eachother). Big Daddy gives the girls a piece of king cake to tide them over until we are finished with pictures. Well babygirl still half asleep startes babbling about a naked man being in her cake. She almost ate the naked man. Finally it dawns on me that she found the baby in the cake and I have to explain it wasn't a naked man but a baby and it means she gets good luck all year. So we get out to do our pictures and freeze our hineys off and go out for breakfast. Middlest gets hot chocolate and when it comes it is this huge coffee cup that is spilling over. She is giggling calling it her Hot chocolate Volcano. Finally it is SuperBowl time and being a girl my favorite part is my momma's Chicken wings and Daddys pink dip. oh and I suppose the commericals are up there to. I really could care less about the game I'm just there for the wings :) The commericals this year were odd to say the least. I got a kick out of a few of the and were kinda wierded out by others. ... what was with the naked guy one? Anyways that was my exciting weekend!! and yes I've had A LOT of caffinated tea today!! But in my defence during the first part the snow gave me a headache and the second part well I "forgot" to take my water cup with me to go see Ms. Kitty and what choice did I have but to get tea at MCD's hehehehe so anyways now i'll be up all night and you might get even more really odd blabbering on blogs from me... we'll just have to see won't we...

Ninja Snow!

we so got sneak attacked this morning. All weekend the weathermen pedicted rain for Monday. I get up this morning and look outside to see how bad it was before babygirl and I went out to take our friend Ms.Kitty some special treats and holy moley it is snowing and not just fluries either. By 8am we had an inch on the ground! The weather lady said NONE of the forcasters perdicted snow it just snuck past us. For two almost 3 hours babygirl and I enjoyed the full blown panic of a surprise Alabama snowstorm. During times it was almost white out conditions. The weather chat room was all a buzz with upset parents who were mad that they didnt cancel school yelling at how stupid the super is and how they are putting our babies at risk!! People complaining that the stores are already sold out of milk, eggs, and bread!! How could they not have warned us!! I'm telling you it was better than a soap opera!! By 11 the snow had stopped and the sun came out Babygirl and I were able to go visit Ms. Kitty and marvel at how fast the snow had melted. I think it lasted until noon. We had fun playing in it while it lasted. Maybe tomorrow we'll get another Ninja snow. Why Ninja snow because it snuck up in the dead of night and attacked us thats why.

here is to hoping!!

This morning a friend played a joke on me that didnt quite turn out the way she had thought it would. This was the kind of joke that worries you in a do I know this person kind of way. It also brought light to the fact my name is associated with this blog. and I do have quite a few readers that i'm not sure who they really are. Sure we correspond HOWEVER I don't really know them SO I changed our address to That my my name is no longer part of the site. Here is to hoping all my loyal readers can still find me!!!!

Catcher in the Rye

So J.D. Salanger died last week. Mom and I discussed how neither of us has read Catcher in the Rye. She asked why I never read it. Well those of you who know me really well know that I am a conspiricy FREAK. Well The reason was the whole ConsipicyTheory movie thing. That THEY track who buys that book. So for some strange only me know why reason i have stayed as far away from that book as possible. Well today at Barnes and Noble my mother bought it for me on her CREDIT CARD!!!! THEY are soo going to come kill my mother now. She thinks I was calling her a lot before.. Just wait.. it's going to be like a million times a day now!! Truely. I am worried about even reading it!! What if i get my fingerprints or DNA on it?! Will they come get me too.. What about if the girls touch it?! Holy Crap.. why did I let her buy it~!!! See and you guys thought I was sane!!!

oh yummmm

Tonight was girls night. Big daddy has tutoring and we take the chance to stay up a little later and watch NCIS and eat girl food. This week we couldn't think of what to eat so I decided to throw a few things in a pot. First we had Burtolli cheese tortolini. but no skettie sauce.. BUT I had bacon and chicken.. who can pass up that combo?? Still did not have a "binder" no sauce.. hmm well I have sour cream and a Spinach Artichoke Dip packet. Mixed that together and let set while the food cooked. Ohhh baby this is sooooo good!! Not at all healthy! but very good. Thank goodness for Daddy tutoring this would have been right up there with giving the girls ice cream sundaes for dinner :) Not that I would EVER do something like that.

Valentines and relationships

As Valentines day approches thoughts turn to love..the squishy mushy you have to buy your Valentines Diamonds and chocolate or you dont love them kind of love. Not the everlasting tough and can't shake the foundation kind of love. I listen and watch other couples. I wonder do they truely see what they are doing to each other? Do they even really like each other? They speak disrespectfully to and of each other. Do you not realize what you do and how you make the other feel? No of course not. I know I am old fashioned in my ideas and most do not agree, BUT look at your relationship. Do you beat down each other with your words? Do you call or complain to others about them? Every time you do that you hurt your relationship even more.  Even more so you ask others to hate and dislike your partner. Ever though about that? When you call your friends or your mommy crying about your partner, you are only telling them bad things and so they will only see the bad when they look at your patner. Then you wonder why everyone hates them and thinks they are hateful toward you.
 I challange everyone to say at least something nice or loving to your " Other" each day. Watch what can happen to your relationship when you TRY to be nice to each other. Divorce rates are astronomical!!! Ever wonder why? I think it is because we do not know HOW to be married. Just TRY what do you have to lose??
Sorry about once again jumping on my soapbox about relationships.
BTW onw of the worse things you can do is to bash your partner on the internet. Imagine how many people will see that one!

I love my husband and im damn proud of it!!

I love my sister!! She means so much to me. I love watching my babies playing with each other, Most of the time. They act similar to the way my sister and I acted at least my mom says we acted that way. It's so funny to hear the SHE'S TOUCHING ME kinds of things. Today I was searching through old SD cards filled with videos. I got such a kick out of how the girls' relationships evolved as they grew older.
The first had babygirl fresh out of the hospital laying on my bed and middlest 18 months petting her and calling her schweet baby then kissing her and then looking at me and saying i gived her kishys. it is the sweetest thing!!  The second had babygirl in the shallow yard pool all of 1 and middlest almost 3 about to slide into the pool. She looks at me and says I tell her to move shee MOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE then she goes down the slide and knocks the baby on to her hiney. it was soooooo funny.
No the baby wasnt hurt, the pool was shallow and babygirl had a swimmy on so she was well padded.
Still to go from sweet and loving toward her sister to knocking her on her butt. I should have taken that as a warning of what was to come. But we never do.
