Saturday was my turn to babysit. Not too bad--the kids went to bed at 7:00! How can I get some kids like that? I got to hang out in someone else's house and watch tv until almost 11. This babysitting thing is a racket! I can't believe that we paid $10 an hour for that! This co-op is the best thing ever!
I suppose I should update you on my personal training extravaganza! I had my 4th session on Friday and it was all about CORE. (you know, abs and stuff!) So, I worked hard and today and I still feeling the burn! I hate doing it when I am there, but it is so awesome! This was the best birthday present ever! And, next Friday is my 5th and final session, but I talked Doug into letting me get 5 more. (All it took was for me to give him permission to go on a golf trip--grrrrrrrr!!!)
So, you know my girl, Kinsey? She decided to change her name to Sara. Why? I have NO idea. She just informed me that her name has changed and I should address her as Sara from here on out. I suppose I can do that, but I refuse. I named her Kinsey, dammit! Don't mess with it! (But, I think that it is funny nonetheless!)
So, we have been struggling with Kinsey (i mean Sara) having accidents. I am not sure what is going on, but she has them randomly. I have been trying all sorts of different tactics to get her to stop, but my latest is the one that I am sticking with...
A few days ago I was playing with her on the floor. When she got up, I noticed that she had had an accident while we were playing. I took her into the bathroom to deal with her, and she said, "Mommy, are you mad?" I said, "I'm not mad, Kinsey--i mean Sara--I am just sad." So, that was it. I dropped it and went into the laundry room to throw her stuff in the washer.
A few minutes later she comes in and hands me a folded up note. Then, she turns and walks away. I open the note, and there is a big heart on one side and the other side says, "I AM SRE FR HAV ENG AKSDT IN DER SARA LOVES MOMMY" (Translation: I am sorry for having an accident in there. Sara loves Mommy."
Is that the smartest kid on earth, or what? I am going to save that note forever! Let's see if the accidents stop. I am sure that I will end up with an entire drawer full of notes by the time she is a teenager!!
