I Still Like You, Too!

Macy has been making me crazy lately. Her new thing is, "What Mom?" She says this whenever I am talking to her. She says it 3 or 4 times to the same comment, and I swear she is standing 3 feet away from me. It is so annoying! Today, she was in her room getting her shoes on. I had already asked her to be quiet because Paige was sleeping. (Macy woke Paige up from her nap yesterday. A 12-month-old with one, one-hour nap is NOT a happy child the rest of the evening. So, I was pretty much going to lose it if Macy woke Paige up for the second day in a row.) She was talking to Claire, and they got loud, of course. I went in and asked her to be quiet. She started in with the "What Mom?" thing. After three times, I bent down, held onto her arms, and told her to listen to me when I speak. I didn't yell, but I was pretty stern with her. I walked past her room a couple of minutes later and she said, "I still like you, Mom." I wanted to say, "Well...the jury's out on you right now." But, I was laughing too hard to be upset with her anymore! Instead I said, "I still like you, too." It's a good thing God made her so cute. It has saved her life countless times!
How funny is this picture of her! She just turned four and already she's multi-tasking like a true woman. Talking to Daddy on the phone while blow-drying her baby's hair. I love you, Mace!

What a girl! The mulit-tasking as well as knowing just how to make mom happy when it's really time! How cute!

I love it when they say things that seem to redeem them somehow. She is so cute! It's to bad boys aren't so good at the multitasking, they would get so much more done. Look at her, she's a pro already.

I love all your posts! I can't believe how much I miss out on in one week! I was hardly on the computer with my family here, I feel like I have so much to catch up on! Paige's pictures are so cute, is she really a year old already? Pretty soon Polly will have a fun personality & say things that make me laugh just like Macy. Sometimes I can't wait, sometimes I am glad she isn't quite there yet. :)
