Friday Chatty came home from school chatting about 9/11. I was really caught off guard as I didn't know they would talk so in depth about it in first grade. She seemed to know all of the facts and on Saturday insisted on wearing her Flag shirt. We talked about the military and Uncle Lee, the people who serve our country and the people who died that day and we talked about Pap-pa. It seems like every time death comes up we come back to him! She had me in tears again Friday afternoon telling me how much she missed him. So sweet and a great reminder for me.
Chatty knows the way to my heart ... "You're the BEST, better than daddy. You are the best and he is the second best" (although we all know that is subject to change at any moment).
Not quite so sentimental but out of the mouth of my youngest was "I farted in my seat mommy" - anyone who says potty humor is just for boys hasn't met Bia! She was cracking herself up over it and kept saying it. Of course I didn't help by joking - ooh it smells!
Sunday was the first day of the new Sunday School year. Bia has graduated from the nursery and is in the 3 year old class across the hall from Chatty's 1st grade class (that I am co-teaching). We'll see how long it takes for Bia to get mad I am not teaching her class. I foresee a tantrum in our near future. To celebrate the first day we snapped a few pictures before church
I wanted one of the girls and me ...
As you can see Bia was doing her own thing
So Mr. ESPN focused in on Chatty and me and cut Bia off
Finally one with Bia sort of looking at the camera
