My sweet baby girl Olivia is so miserable this week... she is teething, she has a cold, she just is not comfortable! But she is still adorable. My husband took this picture of her and I just love it. She has the most lovely smile and her dimples are just wonderful! I know I am biased but that is ok.I also think my son Owen has the most beautiful eyes. I mean really. The kid has incredible eyes. But WOW is he ever whiny this week. I mean seriously obnoxiously whiny. Occasionally I would just love to stick those beautiful eyes (along with that whiny mouth) into a snow bank. But I don't. Be proud of me. Yesterday Owen called another kid "poopy head" in his class. He got in trouble for that. He was most upset. When we got to his class this morning he immediately asked for the child who taught him those bad words. Once the child was found he pointed to him and said to me "Mommy, that is the boy who says poopy head". Gotta love kids.
And then there is Aiden. My incredibly sensitive Aiden. He can be so sweet to me and give me hugs and kisses and tell me he loves me. He also has incredible hair. Hair that is curly and blond and beautiful. It's truly a shame to cut it. But occassionally I would really like to hang him up by those precious curls. But I don't. Again, you should all be very proud of me.
Today Aiden got to go "shopping" for Christmas presents at school. The school had asked for donations a few weeks ago and they made a "Store" in the gym where the kids could buy gifts for 25 cents a piece for their families. Aiden got a Star Wars game for daddy (and for himself), a buzz lightyear toy for me (and himself), Sponge Bob squarepants for Owen, and a stuffed whale for Olivia, along with some assorted small toys that he told me he forgot who he got them for. I was actually pretty impressed. I thought he did very well for a 5 year old who thinks the world revolves around himself.
