Another rider

Eligh insisted this afternoon that he wanted to take his training wheels off.  I told him to first try out Addyson's bike and see how he felt and did.

That boy rode the dang bike on his first try.  I held on, let go and around the corner he went.  What in the world?

Daddy got home a few minutes later and I told him about the crazy news and he wanted to see for himself.

Five minutes later....daddy was taking off the training wheels of Eligh's bike.  He held on a couple times, and then Eligh said he did not want any more help.

He isn't perfect, nor can he get up the hill yet (he still a runt and really doesn't have the extra muscle to do so like big sister), but he started in the grass and would go all on his own.

Tears people, tears.

Addy's first tooth fairy visit

It happened!  Less than a week ago her tooth started wiggling and last night while I went for a 5.5 mile run her tooth fell out.  Daddy said she was simply wiggling it around with her tongue and out it fell.

Less than a week

In less than one week the following has happened:

  • Water slide usage
  • 1st loose tooth that is just dangling and making me want to scream
  • End of year recital
  • No more training wheels for the first born
More on each hopefully soon.

Best friends

Addyson:  "I have a question for both mom and dad."
Mommy:  "What's that?"
Addyson:  "Which one of us is your favorite?"
Mommy:  "All of you, we love you all the same.  We do NOT have favorites."
Daddy:  "Yep, we love you all."
Addyson:  "Ok, well, who is your best friend?"
Daddy:  "Mommy."
Mommy:  "Yep, daddy is."
Kinsley:  "My best friend is Eligh, Addyson, and (random friend from soccer team)."
Addyson:  "You two are married, you can't be best friends."
Mommy:  "Exactly.  You marry your best friend."

Sit ups

I was supervising Addyson getting ready for school this morning (which is like asking a turtle to win a derby).

Addy: "Mom, wait!"
Mommy: "What?"
Addy:  "Let me do 10 sit ups before I get dressed."
Mommy: "Ummmm....ok."
