Today was the second day for Miss Anna to be with us. Of course both days she’s been here so far she’s been shipped off to school along with the boys and tomorrow is our first FULL today all together. We shall see how it goes. I mean I have to feed her a meal and everything! (Don’t worry Lisa, I’ll feed her – promise!) Here’s proof that she already gets snacks. tee hee.
And now, here’s a little babysitting story for you all…
This morning, shortly after her mom dropped her off, little Anna disappeared from any of the rooms that contain toys (which are several!) and I finally assumed she was in the potty. I wanted to give her her privacy but I also wanted to make sure that all was going well. I checked in and she was on her way to taking a tinkle so I let her be. I heard the flush and the next thing I knew she was back in the playroom doing her thang and making her little girl noises (have I mentioned that it’s so cute to have little girl noises in the house?)
I went into “get-the-boys-stuff-ready-for-school” mode while the kids played and Little G ate his breakfast. After the male children (mine) got dressed it was time to head out the door and get buckled in for the 3 minute ride to school.
As an aside, let me just tell you right now that Anna is the most chillin’ kid I know (Lisa, we need to talk about your secret here because this kid is wonderfully laid back!). She enjoys being buckled in. She enjoys being unbuckled. She likes putting her back pack on. She questions nothing so far. Love. her.
Anyway, we park in the parking lot at school and I hear a little (female) voice in the back row say, “I’m naked.” Did y’all catch that? Naked.
I quickly thought (What, did she do some sort of Houdini trick back there and get her dress off??? Surely The B Man would be proclaiming it from the rooftops if she had!) So, I look back and see that her dress is still on and I KNOW she’s NOT naked. Well except for maybe…
So we get out of the car and I do a quick check. Yep, she’s “naked” under there alright. See, we’ve never mixed potty-ing and skirts at our house before so this was a totally new one for me.
Now I must thank Lisa for making sure she had extra panties in her back pack. She saved both of our butts, so to speak. Because if I’d had to go home and get her some new underwear from my house they would’ve been Thomas or Superman. Just so you know, for future reference.
And yes her other ones remained on the bathroom floor at my house, just a little damp. Thinking I may go out and buy a pack of little girl panties, just in case… You should’ve seen the look on her teacher’s face when I let her know that she was “sans” skivies. Priceless.
On a completely different subject, did y’all notice that I added another sidebar over there on the left? Ok, well I didn’t add it myself, the wonderful Karen did. Isn’t she awesome? Once she finished up with all that fancy-schmancy html-ing, I added a bunch of my daily reads over there too and now I think I can pretty much abondon my reader because it updates every time someone posts something new.
Now THAT is awesome.
Or as I like to say “total awesomness!” Which, by the way, isn’t really good to say around a four-year old a lot because then he might think that “awesomness” is really a word and since it isn’t well… you get the idea.
