The summer is rushing by and I haven’t had time to document all of the fun we have been having!
Let me tell you about this afternoon. Amara’s Mom had an appointment so Amara came over and spent part of the afternoon with me — Grandpa was at work — I had her all to myself. We had a blast. We crammed a whole lot of fun into 90 minutes! It started with playing follow the leader. I have to admit that I can not hop around the house nearly as easily as she does but it was fun. I’m sure I burned a few extra calories today. This was followed by lunch and Sponge Bob – it’s what we do! We had macaroni & cheese, an apple, a bunch of carrots and Ants on a Log, fresh celery stuffed with creamy peanut butter and topped with raisins! Amara had never had this before but we discussed it in advance and she thought she would try it. She says she wasn’t crazy about it but she eat 6 pieces!
Then it was off to the backyard to swing and giggle!
We have been so lucky this summer to have some perfect weather. Today it was 76°, it doesn’t get much better than that.
When Amara tired of swinging she decided she wanted to play Princess. She turns to me with that devilish grin she gets and says “And you can be the evil witch”. She knows I hate being the evil witch. I stood there for a minute and I said “No, you be the evil witch. I want to be the Princess.” I loved being the Princess and I was awesome with my crown and wand. And she made a great evil witch. Now the evil witch did not like singing so of course the Princess went singing through the forest. She caught me. First she took my voice away. Then she froze me — but my magic wand un-froze me! The evil witch captured me again and this time took me to the tower and tied me up with a red ribbon from one of her bears.
And then Mommy got back.
