A Nice Surprise

I was in the kitchen this morning, getting some breakfast when I heard the front door open. Knowing that Dad had left for work I thought maybe he had forgotten something and came back, so imagine my surprise when I saw Travis standing there. He had to work today so I asked him, "What are you doing here? Did you get fired?". That last question was a joke. Well, it turns out that he's worked over so much this week that they had to send him home early to cut down on his overtime. So, I get several hours with him all to myself. Well, not all to myself, we have girls to tend to. Anyway, we're going to go out and do fun stuff, I'm so excited!

In the world of kids, Halle is fussy, fussy, fussy. I really don't know what the issue is. She won't lay down for a nap or play for too long. She will play with Chloe for a while. Honestly, those two girls love each other! It's so cute to see Halle's little face light up and squeal with delight when she sees her big sis. I put Halle in Chloe's bed two nights ago while I read bedtime stories and she was so excited! Anyway, back to my fussy kid. It could possibly be teeth, but the only little bumps I feel on her gums are her canines and I really don't want that to be the case. I was also thinking maybe she is ready to start crawling. I remember that Chloe used to fuss a lot before she started crawling. But I really want my little angel back instead of the screaming crying kid she's been replaced with. Really, I love her even when she is screaming and crying, you know.

Amanda got her phone back today. She's excited and has heard from her friend Jennifer and her "friend" Clark. No, Clark is not the "like interest" for last month, this is a new one. He does seem to be especially smitten by her and she actually seems to appreciate it. She usually disses guys like that. So, there will be a dinner with the parental units when she's ungrounded to see if we approve.

I will wrap up now and go get my screaming angel out of her bed because she hasn't fallen asleep even though she's been screaming for 30 minutes.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Auntie Tisra says that Amanda is too young to date. And, though I haven't met them, I don't approve of this young man's entire family. No one will ever be good enough for Amanda. And, I think she needs a bodyguard. A really ugly old bodyguard.

You're too funny! Of course she's too young to DATE! This is just so they can be BF/GF. She can't date until AT LEAST next year. She's not even allowed to ride with boys.

He does seem like a very nice boy, though. We said he'd have to go to dinner with us for "the talk" (the are you good enough for our daughter talk)and he's excited about it. He's either very smitten and responsible or very weird.

So what is Boyfriend/Girlfriend if it's not "dating"?

Amy said...

Dating is when they go out on dates by themselves.
