Random Tuesday

Why is it that you spend your first several years wishing and wishing that you didn’t have a bedtime and waiting for Fridays to stay up late…

(Alex would often fall asleep screaming and holding onto the bars of his crib.)

then when you finally don’t have anyone to tell you when to go to bed, all you think about all day is, “When do I GET to go to bed?”
Or maybe that’s just me!

Sabrina was reading a book to me that she is reading in her reading group at school. It was about the history of the White House and a little about the rooms inside. When she read that in the Oval Office there was a rug that had the Presidential Seal on it. She stared at the picture and said, “I think it looks like a bird. Not a seal.” (I agree!)


Then at the end of the book, it said that if you became President someday you’d live in the White House. I asked her if she wanted to be President. She said, “Yeah, but it would be a lot of work. What does the President do anyway?” After discussing some of the Presidents duties, her eyes got big. “I just wanna LIVE in the White House. I don’t want to do all that.” Such a cutie.

Just for fun, here’s a Spanish lesson for the day. It’s really a Spanish song that I like, but it has the words in Spanish and English so if you don’t know Spanish, you could pick up a word or two, but you’ll have to be fast!

  7. Sabrina's pretty funny! All she wants to do is LIVE in the white house, not do all that work. Well at least she's honest!

    LOVE that song! I had never heard it before.

  8. I wouldn't mind living in the white house either - as long as I wouldn't have to WORK! :)
    Cute kids. And I am 100% with you on the sleep thing!

  9. What a fun post. I love the crib picture. I am totally in that phase right now with my baby. And every time he is grumpy to go to bed, I think, "I wish someone was forcing me to sleep right now!" :)
