Wonder Woman!

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, so CC's school allowed everyone to wear superhero shirts today to encourage students to be "superheroes against bullying." Not that CC knows what bullying is. Or superheroes. But she was more than happy to borrow a Wonder Woman tutu shirt from her friend, and wear it in lieu of her uniform!

Silly Sock Day!

The preschool is celebrating "Socktober," an annual sock drive for local kids. In addition to asking everyone to donate pairs of socks, they also have a Silly Sock Day for the kids. Our were happy to oblige.

Anything to be goofy! Sweet Pea, especially, has been showing a very goofy side lately. Crazy faces, very animated storytelling, and sheer silliness. She even went a step further with Silly Sock Day and chose to wear two different shoes. Goofball!

Mustard Seeds

The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith." 
The Lord replied, "If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, 
you would say to this mulberry tree, 
'Be uprooted and be planted in the sea,' 
and it would obey you."
- Luke 17:5-6

This was our Gospel reading a few weeks ago, and that day during Children's Church, the teachers passed out mustard seeds to the kids. CC returned to our pew clutching six of the tiny things, but by the time we returned home an hour later, there were only two.

"Let's plant them, Mommy!" she begged. Why not? I'm sure a mustard seed isn't going to grow in our part of the country, or in October, but what the heck. We planted it in a little bowl and put it on the kitchen window sill. Every few days we dripped some water into it.

Unfortunately, two weeks later, this thing hasn't sprouted at all. But at least we had fun planting and watering it!

CC's Haircut

CC's been talking off and on about getting her hair cut short, and I think MJ was just hoping and praying she'd forget about the whole idea. But last week she became adamant. She was due for a trim anyway, and like I told MJ, it's her hair. She can have it short if she wants.

So despite her love of buns, ballerinas, and Rapunzel, she climbed up onto the little seat and asked the stylist for "hair as short as my sister's." (And whose fault is it that her sister's hair is so short anyway?)



I love it. Isn't it adorable?

Lately, the kids have taken to "camping" around the house. It mostly involves spreading their baby blankets on the floor, wearing their little backpacks around, and taking turns tucking each other in. Pretty cute, actually, although horribly inaccurate!

This was Sweet Pea's version the other day.
