The four-letter word.....almost!

Last night while the girls were playing together I heard what was the beginning of a skirmish between them. It didn't sound like anything major so I opted to let them "work it out". Then, to my absolute horror, I heard Ryann ~ my four year old angel of a daughter ~ belt out "Dammit"!!! I, of course, called her into the next room where I was sitting and asked her to explain what had just happened. It seems that Kamri had taken Ryann's purse and was looking through her wallet and "wouldn't give it back". So, in a moment of pure frustration, Ryann said "dammit". She knew that what she had done was wrong because before she relayed this story to me she stared at the floor and told me that she didn't want to be in trouble. And I know that this probably makes me a horrible parent - but for the life of me I couldn't help but laugh inwardly when she repeated the "bad word". It seems so odd to see your innocent little girly-girl use such a word! So, we called her Daddy and she had to tell him the story - and that was her punishment.....cause she did NOT want to tell her Daddy what she had said! Now, I think it's important that I also point out that this is not the first time that such foul language has escaped the mouth of my one point several months ago she was heard using the "f-word"....glad I didn't hear that one!

After that, the rest of the evening seemed boring.

Kamri is very excited about her upcoming birthday. In fact, she's been talking about it since July!! I still haven't decided what to get for her......because I swear there's NOTHING this child needs except maybe clothes. But come on, that's just not fun when you're three!!! So, I'm taking her to get "big girl ears just like Ryann's" for her birthday and we'll see what else I can come up with!

Other than that, not a whole lot going on with us these days. Ryann started in an after-school program yesterday and will begin tumbling next Monday. She's really excited about that! And of course, she's still doing wonderfully in school.

I'm going to post several new pics of the girls on so check it out!! I'll include some of Kamri's birthday pics!

Love to all!!!!
