We had a good day today. The book reading during baby girl's naptime is really working out well for us. This morning after naptime, the kiddos wanted to paint. Neko painted with fingerpaints and Matt with a brush (brushes). The funny thing was while baby girl was painted Matt said "Oh no" for some reason and she smacked herself on the forehead like she does every time someone says "oh, no". I had to wash the paint out of her hair!
I have been trying to call the groomers ever since Fri. so Ali could get a bath and her nails cut. (I almost said her nails done until I realized how funny that sounded) I kept getting a recording saying the phone # was not in service. After Baby girl left at noon, Matt and I drove over to the place to make an appointment. Verizon had been working on the lines since Fri. So her appointment is tomorrow. From there we stopped at Family Dollar in the same plaza to see if they had anything Matt could talk me into buying. I was very surprised when we first walked in and he picked up a sundress with matching panties in a 24 mo. size. It was orange and pink and his favorite color is orange and her's is pink so he thought we should buy it for baby girl, once it was in my cart, he said "well, now I guess you should be looking for something for me don'tcha think?" The "little something" he wanted was a matchbox truck with a trailer and snowmobile......a mere $6! He said he would do chores the rest of the week to pay for it. From there it was on to McDonald's for some lunch (gag) but he loves it and I am such a pushover
Later this afternoon he went in the pool by himself. He wanted me to come in but I was getting wet enough from the splashing.
Tomorrow afternoon, we are going to the library again. Oh, I love that he reads.
