I'm horrible at doing this! Maybe I'll hop on the bandwagon again. Maybe I'll go find one of those blog challenges to keep me on top of this!
I just have to post this list and a couple of pictures so I don't forget. Afterall, originally I intended this blog to keep track of some of the silly anecdotes that take place around here. So...
Before Emma's birthday, we asked her what she wanted. Her list was simple: a red toy, a yellow bear, a box and cheese. Okay! Thinking it was a fluke, we asked her several times in the following weeks and kept getting the same response! So funny. We have no idea how she formulated such a bizarre list in her head.
Well, thanks to Aunt Abby, her wishes were fulfilled! Emma is such a ham. She was so serious about that list, and THRILLED with each part of Abby's gift.
In other Emma news, I've decided I've GOT to put a stop to my new yelling habit. It's embarrassing to admit that I've become a yeller, but it's true. So the other morning I decided to try the quiet voice approach, and started talking to and reprimanding Emma in a very quiet voice. She promptly stopped what she was doing, looked at me with a very quizzical look and said, "Mommy! What's wrong with you?!" Was this a good or bad reaction? Doh!
