Friday's Fantastic Festival of Facts!!

I don't know what that means. But everyone always has these catchy day-related titles. I feel scatter brained & random today.

Natalie (3) has started making use of manipulative threats. Yesterday as Captain America was heading back to work after lunch she said, "NO. You can't leave. If you do, I will NOT eat, I will just sit here and whine. For 60 minutes." Then at rest time she wanted a movie. I said no, after your nap you can watch one. "Then I will NOT nap. I will NOT listen to music. I will just lay in my bed and whine." For what it's worth, she does not follow through on the threats. Yet.

At Christmas Ella (5) felt we needed a gift for her teachers. Her teachers are apparently any adult that has ever crossed her path at school. The same was true for Valentine's. We needed to send one for the music teacher, even though he'll be gone, AND we need one for his sub. Etc, etc. I think it's nice though, that she remembers everyone. Including the woman who visits them once a week or so to teach them sign language.

Natalie is observant. I mean above and beyond observant. Yesterday she saw a big beach towel in the bathroom that has a spikey sun on it. "Mom, did you get this at Pamida?" I wasn't sure what she was talking about at first. Then I remembered the Pamida logo has a spikey sun in it. We drive past it on the way to preschool.

I need more tea. So far on my Teavana wish list I have the rooibos chai, the kamiya papaya oolong, and the zingiber ginger coconut. I'd like to go to the store and sniff them, but this is probably not the best use of resources since the closest one is 2 hours away.

Had a fascinating talk with Ella about God. And how He can even hear your thoughts. Ella seemed kind of relieved. Apparently there's a little boy in her class that they have a hard time understanding when he talks. "You mean God knows what he's saying all the time?" She thought that was pretty cool for that little boy.

I'm ready to stop wearing boots. I would love a new pair of wedge sandals. I have my eye on these. And these.

Are you doing something wonderful for Valentine's Day? I'm going to a wedding. Of people I don't really know. It'll be a nice date though, and I can dress up a little.

Ok then. Until next time.
