Above, we have her having a conversation with her feet whether or not they are going to walk on this stuff or not..........
"Hmmmmmm....Is it worth it??? Should I cry?? Hmmmmmm......"
"Ok...this is kind of funny after all................."
"Ok, I give up...I'm up and giving it a try EVEN IF I don't like it one bit...."
"OK, so it isn't all that bad.....I even found a dead leaf in my car!!!! "
And, then she REALLY got the hang of it and ran all over the back yard....WHAT HAPPENED TO MY BABY????? I now have this toddler that can even climb on and off a 4-wheeler by herself....crazy BIG girl!!!
I found myself Praising God all day for the beautiful weather!! We stayed outside all day long....Cousin Nathan was over playing too which totally keeps everyone entertained!! I even took all 6 kids out to eat lunch by myself...I think my Helen counted 8 PEOPLE that stopped at our table to ask, "Are all these children YOURS?" "Mam, you are BRAVE!" and my favorite of course, "Mam, I just had to stop and tell you...your children are so well behaved...are they all yours?" I think people just give the compliment out so they don't feel so bad about asking IF THEY ARE ALL MINE!! :) LOL I left everyone confused when I said "NO...only 5 of them are mine..." You could see them trying to figure out WHICH 5 were mine!! :) too funny!! :) (cousin Nathan is also adopted from Ethiopia...just an fyi for anyone NEW around here :)
**So, the TRUTH is..I bribed them ALL with a cookie to sit still and use their good manners while we ate out!! :) It works like a charm!! :)
***Happy Spring to you all...hope you are getting this fabulous 70 degree weather where ever you may be!! And TRY going barefoot...it is fabulous!! Happy Tuesday to you all, kj
