Classic Natalie

Jason – “Do you know what comes on tonight?”
Natalie – “Today is Monday. So, Dances in Stars.”
Jason – “Would you like to watch some of it?”
Natalie – “No. I would like to watch ALL of it.”

Then earlier in the evening –
Natalie – “Let’s go out to eat tonight.”
Jason – “Well, mommy is not feeling very well.”
Natalie – “We can still go. She can just stay home.” (Note that this was right in front of me!)

She’s also been very inquisitive about God saying things like, “Mommy, how did God make our bodies? Did he use scissors and glue?”

Natalie was looking through some pictures the other day (she’s definitely going to be the sentimental type). She was looking through some pictures of me when I was growing up. She said, “Mommy, it looks like when you were little you had cavities.” And I was not sitting with her, so I said, “No, I didn’t. I never had cavities.” To which she replied, “Yes you did. I can see them right here.”

Well, she brings me the album and shows me the picture. I just had to laugh because it was a picture of me with BRACES! She thought the braces were holes in my teeth!

Mother’s Day

Today has been a good day so far. I was woken up by sweet Natalie and Nicholas running in our room saying, “Happy Mother’s Day”. We went to church, came home and opened presents, and ate lunch. Now I am off to take a nap. But before I go, I wanted to share with you what Natalie said the other day.

We were discussing how Mother’s Day was coming up and then Father’s Day next month. And she says, “Is there a kid day?”

And lastly, I wanted to share a haiku I wrote (my first one, by the way) for a contest on a blog I read. I didn’t win, but wanted to post it here for my mom (especially since I didn’t send a Mother’s Day card yet. I don’t know what happened, I have it and even thought about sending it on Wed, but thought it was too early. I waited and then forgot. uuggh). Anyways, we were supposed to write a haiku about our moms and I wrote mine based on a song my mom and I used to sing together when I was little. It is by Helen Reddy and is called, “You and Me Against the World.” Enjoy!

My mom and my friend
I could count on you to stay
together forever

in the times we cried
I knew God was on our side
love forever

time flies by each day
remembering we’ll have to do
memories forever

In the midst of the illness and rat fiasco, we did manage to make it to Natalie’s ballet performance weekend before last. She did such a great job! Such a pretty little ballerina princess. One of the other parents took a video of the performance, and I thought I would link to it here. We made a video of it too, but we are still in the stone age with 8 mm tapes, and therefore aren’t digital. So, anyway, here she is…ENJOY! (by the way, she is the cutie pie in the front row on the left at the very beginning, then she changes to the back row right away)
