Megan and Grandad’s conversation

Russell’s dad called a few minutes to go to tell about a conversation he and Megan were having. She was swinging and he was watching when she stopped and said, “You know, my dad knows just about everything.”
and Grandad asks “Well, what doesn’t he know?”
Megan thinks for a minute and replies, “What God’s doing.”
Grandada asks “What do you think God’s doing?”
Megan answers “I think He’s praying.”

Makeup

Madison and Megan have been playing in my makeup lately. I wouldn’t mind, but they make a mess of my colors and brushes. So, I found a little play kit at Sam’s that has tinted lip glosses and polishes for them to use. I told Megan that she is too young to wear eye shadow but she could wear lip gloss any time she wanted.  Sunday at lunch she was sitting across from me and the light hit her just right…

“Megan, mommy told you that you are too young to wear eye make up. You can only wear lip gloss.”

“I AM just wearing lip gloss, mommy. I  put it on my eyes”

What can you say to that? After much laughter, I did a better job of explaing what I meant by no eye makeup!

The Haircut

I was so proud of Megan today.  I needed to get things done around the house and she played ever so quietly… Something I’d like to pass on: Always check on your kids if they are being too quiet! Dora received a new hair do. No bangs and large chunks out of the back.  Megan was so proud and thinks Dora looks beautiful. I didn’t have the heart to get on to her.  I just said ‘Don’t EVER cut your hair or you’ll be in BIG trouble.’  Did you notice the scissors?

Confession

My house is usually picked up.  With kids, my husband and me there are usually one or two things laying out.  If I find out somebody is stopping by, I will stash various items in drawers or sometimes the oven. Yes, the oven.  Well, today I forgot that I had done that.  Apparently my plastic blender cup has a melting point of 400. Notice the cup inside, it is permanently fused. I guess I’d better just clean up and put things where they go. Still, please don’t ask to look in my oven.

Homesick

Madison and Megan are homesick.  I don’t think they realized it until Grandad broke a major rule: DO NOT LET THE GIRLS TALK TO MOMMY WHILE VISITING. I just got off the phone with Megan, our conversation went like this:

Hey, sweetie!! Tell me all the fun stuff you’ve been doing!

I’ve been crying all last night and all today because I miss you.  Granna says it would be a good idea if you would just come to Amarillo and spend the night with me.  Please mommy, would you PLEASE  come??

Madison informed me that she cried just a little, and she misses me. They’ve been gone since Friday morning and we will get them back Tuesday night.  I just wanted to tear out of here and go get them.  Who cares that Megan lied about what Granna said! Plus, I know good and well that they’ve had a great time. They didn’t know they missed me until Grandad passed the phone.

He called later to say they were not crying and were happily playing a game.  He also said “I now remember why we don’t let them talk to mamma.” Lesson learned. Again.

Catchy little tune!

The girls have been singing a song they’ve heard on K-LOVE. 

“Oh no you never let go

Through the corn and through the snow

Oh you never let go of me!”

(Repeat over, and over, and over…….)

T-Ball

 The girls are playing T-ball this summer on the same team.  It is made up of friends from chuch, which makes it really fun.  Russell is coaching and lots of other dads are helping.  There have been some great moments!

During the first game, Madison hit a in-field home run and Megan hit ball off the tee,  ran to the pitchers mound and was tagged out! When Madison played pitcher, she spent most of her time wiggling her loose tooth.  Megan was on second base most of tonight and spent most of her time talking to the kids who were on that base.  When Coach Russell (aka dad) asked what the kids were saying to her, she said said “They were saying ‘STOP TALKING TO ME!'”  I love T-ball!
