Days of dress up
8:30am Wake up, go to dresser, pick out outfit and underwear, change clothes, throw away pull up, all by herself.
10:00am Change clothes again, per Mommy's request, "because you need to match and wear warmer clothes gym." I do always give her the choice as to what she is going to wear, I know she appreciates that.
12:00pm Come home from gym, eat lunch and Anna disappears into her bedroom, trying to decide what outfit she should wear. She always comes out with a new outfit and always says "Mommy, do you love it?"
2:00pm Just before her nap, Anna always changes into shorts.
I honestly don't know where she has learned this. I am not one to change clothes all of the time. Until I lost weight, I wore the same pair of jeans, t-shirt and tennis shoes, everyday. (except to church, then I would change into my jeans, t-shirt and tennis shoes as soon as we got home) Perhaps one of the days that I was wearing my "uniform" she thought "when I can dress myself, I will never dress like that."
These wardrobe changes continue for the rest of the day. This morning by 10:30, she had easily worn 5 different pairs of my shoes around the house. She particulary fond of my black high-heeled shoes. (she actually walks quite well in them!) When I cleaned out my closet the other day, she discovered my basket of shoes and has been in heaven ever since.
When I finished my workout at the gym, I looked in the in the windows at the day care and notice Anna talking to an older boy, I thought it was so cute. She then spotted me, turned towards the window and that is when I notice her button down shirt wide open. I was a little alarmed. My little girl was just talking to an older boy with her shirt almost off. A scary snapshot of the future? I hope not. I asked her why her shirt was unbuttoned, she said because her shirt was dirty and wet. We got home from the gym and as I was checking my e-mail, Anna came up to me with a different shirt on and was carrying her dirty shirt from the gym. She said "here Mom, put it in the washing machine." 3 going on 18.
It's hard not to notice, while folding laundry, just how much laundry Anna is going through. I folded 3 pairs of pants of Noah's and folded ELEVEN bottoms for Anna. This did not include dresses. I need to rename this blog to "I should be folding Anna's laundry."
Today, while waiting for a red light in a construction zone, I groaned because I thought I was going to be late. Anna said "ugh, God bless it." I'm finding myself spelling words like "hate" and "moron."
Oh and something else Anna does is she continuously asks us what time it is. It's very funny. "Mom, what time is it?" "5:33." "oh thanks." "Mom, what time is it?" "5:33." "Oh thanks. Mom, ask me what time is it?" "Anna, what time is it?" "forty-five." It's all very cute and it happened about 22 times today.
Lastly, I am glad that Kellie Pickler is gone. I'm just nervous for the rest of the season. I think Paris should be next, she's very talented, but she'll make it in the business when she's older, she's got the hook up. Now I can't decide...do I want Elliot to win or Chris?????
