Sadie (while looking at a book with a picture of the solar system): "I'm worried about Pluto."
Me: "What?"Sadie: "I'm worried about Pluto."Me: "Why?"Sadie: "Because they made it not a planet anymore."Me: "I think it's going to be okay."Sadie (in a very sad voice): "Yeah. Me too."
In fact, I think that the kid should have extraordinarily high self esteem, because she acts as his own personal cheerleader.
The other day Sadie raced into the kitchen and told me to come quick because of Patrick. "Look! Look at what he's doing!!!!" By her tone I thought he was tap dancing on the dining room table. Or maybe actually crawling (although who needs to crawl when your an expert scooter?).
The excitement was actually over the fact that he was pushing himself up with his arms and looking around. Which he's been doing for months and months. But Sadie was ready to have a party to celebrate the accomplishment so... yeah... she's his own little cheerleader!
I heard her tell Nani that she's going to be five tomorrow and that means she'll be a kindergartner and she and Mommy are starting school...
And while I have been making school plans that's absolutely not what we have planned for tomorrow (and she should know since she had some very specific requests!).
I think my girls pretty hilarious.
Take these pictures for example.
In case you can't tell, they're dancing:
Does he look like he's begging with his eyes for someone to get him out of there?
He might be...
"Mommy, you need to sit down and take a rest. Don't worry. I can watch the babies."
The only problem is that things like this happen:
See that picture of the three of us by the river? Can you tell what Mae's doing? She's taking off her shoes. Because she's about to try to plunge into the icy cold, high water (because they're releasing water from the dam). Yup... I really can't leave her with anyone...
But Sadie was very sweet and did insist I lay on the floor in the living room while she felt my forehead and declared that it felt warm and repeatedly told me I needed to hold still and rest.
I still just can't believe she's already five. Where has the time gone?!?!?!
