Day of rest


Well, Sunday is designed to be a "day of rest" and today it truly is for this girl. I have caught the nasty little bug that has been flying around and am feeling like total yuck. So, instead of going to church this morning with my hubby he went alone. This afternoon he and Lily played outside and I stayed indoors (close to the bathroom), and instead of working tonight I had to call my boss and say "sorry, no can-do".

Now that I have a little time on my hands, and an empty house, I thought I might ramble a bit.


Here are some of the conversations I have had with the wee one this past week:

(After getting some unwanted boogers outta my girl's nose) Sorry if that is too vulgar for anyone, but boogers and the like no longer gross me out.

Lily: "you get my boogas momma? Tanks, dat feews betta." She is constantly saying that "whatever" I have done makes it feel better. Whether it is brushing her teeth, her hair, or putting on lotion. I find it endearing.


(While lying in bed the other night with her new favorite sleep-mate Sonya Lee)

"Momma, she stay warm too!" meaning, she wanted me to cover up her little doll with the blankies.

After everyone was properly tucked in she whispered "G'night Sonya Wee...be vewy bwiet momma, Sonya Wee is sweeping." How cute is that?


(Thursday night Lily insisted she wanted to sleep NOT in momma's bed, but in "Yee Yee's bed" so I took her upstairs and tucked her in and walked back downstairs to hold my breath and wait)

As I listened on her moniter this is what I heard: Momma, wook at me. I'm sweeping wike a big girl. (loud, exaggerated sigh)... I'm sweeping wike a big girl, momma. MOMMA!!!! MOMMA!!!

Maybe not such a big girl just yet.


I walked in the bathroom the other day to find her standing on the toilet, leaning against the sink, so I asked her what she was doing. "Just thinking" she said. HMMMM...


Last night she was going on and on about her birthday. I asked her who was coming to her party and she said, "pwesents, cake, swee dandles for bwowing(3 candles for blowing), party hats"...Wait, Lily, I said WHO is coming to your party!? Answer: "Evweebody!" So, I'll expect you all here on June 10th for the best 3 yr. old birthday party ever! It's not even May yet, and she is already excited about it -- I hope we can last until then!

a girl's gotta plan the perfect party, it takes lots of time!!

feel better soon, lots of rest, hot soup, and hot tea!!!

Mommy Spice said...

You are so smart to write all of her cute words and phrases down. You'll have to share it with her when she gets older. We have to tuck babies in bed too, and give them night night kisses.

I hope you feel better soon.

I miss the days between 2-3 years. They were so fun and innocent...and conversations were so sporadic. It's nice to know you're needed for boogers and all the other gross things. I LOVE that feeling. :)

Tracy said...

Love the conversations --- so sweet! Btw, Hannah usually comes up to me and says "snot nose" when she needs a little help with her boogers!! :)

kris said...

Her calling out "Momma" after being tucked in had me laughing! I think I was a lot like her at that age! And the "just thinking"? Oh my gosh! What a ham!

Hey, count me in on the party... at least by internet : o )

tracy said...

It's so nice that you blog all the cute things she's says. I always think I will remember, but I easily forget.

Feel better!

amy liz said...

i love the great responses momma's can get when we ask the question "what are you doing" to a pure and unassuming pre-schooler. especially when toilets are involved.
boogers. boogers are all the rage in our house, and none of us are even sick. but gracie is proud that she likes the way they taste, and also thinks that flying ants like "booger nectar" so don't let 'em near your nose...

Jonni said...

Lily is just so sweet. I can just imagine her saying all those things and looking so adorbale. I am so ready to be a Mom!!!! :)

Hugs,
Jonni
