|Driving to school this morning. AH. I love her.|
Lila was incredible this morning. And this is my blog so I can brag about her, right?
First off, she got out of her bed and didn’t BARGE into our room like she’s the PO-lice telling us, “I NEED TO GO POTTY” like she ALWAYS does. Instead, she went potty quietly by herself, went back into her room and read books.
WHOA. THIS IS A TURNING POINT. (Will it happen again? I’d bet not.)
NEXT, Vivienne was up crying in the sixes (6:00 a.m. – 6:59 a.m.) and this is something we try to ignore. Lila couldn’t.
From my bed, I said, “Absolutely.”
She went into Vivienne’s room and I heard her say, “Ah morning, Wee-vee!” Then she turned on her light, talked to her and proceeded to give her books to read in her crib.
A few minutes later, Lila came back into my room and said, “Mommy, Wee-vee’s nose is running.”
So I got up, took care of Vivi’s nose… THEN, about a minute after I was finished, Lila comes trotting into Vivi’s room with a tissue. She was a little late to the game, but she was going to wipe Vivi’s nose for her if I hadn’t.
I told her how awesome she was. How she was such a big helper to help Vivienne when she was crying. She replied with, “Yeah. I know. You’re weln-come. Wee-vee needed you.”
Next, this was a CRAZY-CHAOTIC morning. Craig had an 8 a.m. meeting he forgot about and remembered at 7:45 a.m. So, in order to help me get ready, deal with both ladies and get stuff done before I had to take Lila to school, put Vivi down her for AM nap and go to work, I asked Lila if she wanted to watch TV.
Lila: “I want to watch Underpants. I would like to watch underpants, pease.”
Me: “What? What are you speaking of? Whose underpants do you want to watch? And more importantly, why?”
Lila: “I want to watch U-n-d-e-r-p-a-n-t-s.” (She said it slower for me this time.)
As it turns out, “Underpants” is code for “Wonder Pets” on Nick Jr.
I’m relived that my daughter wanted to watch a cartoon about a duck, turtle and guinea pig saving animals as opposed to watching someone in their underthings.
But seriously, GOOD GIRL, Lila.
