Hey, you guys made all the ads at the bottom light up with 'princess' things-
We use princess like a bad word around here, so Cecilia has no desire for any of that!
I didn't even realize we do it, but when I think back, being called 'princess' in my house meant you weren't capable/self sufficent/tough enough to do it yourself!
Maybe that's why I still freak out when I don't see women outside digging their own post holes around here.
Don't worry, Cecilia is still all girl though and she LOVED it when her friend had a little 'princess' party. That one consisted of a few games (played in dress up 'princess' clothes) and a big play-doh session. I think the cake was pink as an ode to princess.
So we took a few photos at the fair yesterday (and some other random shots)... here they are!
Ack, birthdays! You guys are so great with the parties!! Anything you do is more than I've ever done- we just have a big family birthday and Greg and I invite our adult friends/families and call it good.
But this year we went to a backyard party with 'streamers, balloons and fun stuff to do' and now that is what Ceci is requesting. Oh help, I am the last person to organize games and 'fun stuff.'
I did consent to two days a week of Waldorf preschool for Ceci this fall. She's probably finally ready. I absolutely would not feel bad about NOT doing preschool though, b/c if you are spending time at all with your kiddo at home then they are right on track with what they need. Preschool is over-hyped social time (although there are great ones, Becca & Jen omg, how fantastic) but I think they are sooo optional. That's what I tell myself, b/c I often do not feel like imposing a schedule or social system on my little family yet. I'm bad, I know!!
Jilly, 'brave beloved' is awesome.
That made me smile.
Okay, its noon and I am still in pj's. I did manage to drink most of the coffee and read the front page of the paper, so the day is a success!!
