Fast Forward

Thursday, October 30, 2008

I caught a glimpse of the future today & it brought tears to my eyes (and we all know how much I like to cry).  As we were pulling up to her sitter’s house, we noticed that Laurie & one of the other kids were standing outside in the driveway.  I pulled up, jumped out, put Elle on the ground, helped her put her backpack on, kissed her head, sent her up the driveway to Ms. Laurie, & hopped in the car.

As I was pulling away she turned and waved to me.  It was the sweetest little sight to see her in her trench coat & apple backpack waving bye.  Instantly I fast forwarded to dropping her off at Kindergarten.  She’s growing up way too fast.  Slow down, Elle.  I’m not ready.

ps:  Sorry, Elle.  I had to include that last picture.  It cracks me up!

She Knows More Than I Thought

Joe recapped this conversation for me…and I HAD to share it.

Elle:  “Dad, I’m a boy and a girl.”

Joe:  “No, you’re just a girl.”

Elle:  “Are you a boy or a girl?”

Joe:  “I’m a boy!”

Elle: “Oh.  So you pee standing up!”

Joe:  “True.”

Yikes…I guess kids pick up on that pretty early 🙂

It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

I’ve been trying to catch this at Blockbuster for a few weeks now & it was never in…but tonight ABC has come to the rescue. Tonight ABC is airing The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown at 7:00. Elle has never seen it & Joe has to work late, leaving us the perfect girl night. We’ll pop some popcorn, snuggle in with a blanket for an hour (if her attention span lasts that long) & then off to bed. I can’t think of a more perfect autumn evening.
