Self Esteem builder for the day

Have I mentioned that Ella is 5 and is sooooo ready for Kindergarten? Unfortunately it's still over 6 months away, not that I'm counting. Meanwhile, I've discovered a great game for lazy parents...Hide and Seek. Ella loves it when we play, and I've learned to love it as I've discovered that if I find a good hiding place, I can be assurred of a few minutes of absolute quiet time.

This morning I put Piper down for a nap with visions of getting some things done. I had barely walked downstairs when Ella said, "Are you ready to play Hide and Seek???!!!!"

She helped me unload the dishwasher first, and then we prepared to play. As she was going over the rules, she says, "I'll count first while you hide. It's going to be SOOO easy to find you, because YOU ARE SOOOOO BIG!!!".

Thank you, Ella. Thankyouverymuch.

"Ready or not, here I come!" You'll probably hear my big heavy feet headed your way, b/c in case you haven't heard, I am SOOOO BIG! I'm not bitter or anything. I'm sure she just meant tall, yes, that must've been what she meant.

I somehow thought she was already in Kindergarten. We stopped in to the school office today after I voted to get information for K registration. 6 months is going to fly!
