Last night I was supposed to go to a Pampered Chef party and Emma was going to go with me. Scott had to go visit someone so I was going to have Heather watch Lexi at the house for about an hour. Well, Mom calls an hour before I needed to leave and said she and Heather were coming to pick up Lexi. So of course Emma cried when she realized Lexi was going off without her and Mom ended up taking both of them. I went to the party at S’s house and then met Mom at her house with the girls. Apparently she took them up to Clt to shop and didn’t get back to her house until after 9. So the girls didn’t get to bed until after 10 last night. And they slept in until 9 this morning. I’m supposed to go in the office at lunch today. Mom was supposed to get the girls but it looks like she has errands to run so Scott will have them himself this afternoon. Which I think is ok. He’s been doing pretty good as long as he keeps his sling on. But it is a very rainy day today and I’m thinking I’d rather not go in. But I don’t want to attempt the meeting I have on a conference call.
Yesterday we took the girls to their Fall Festival at their school. They both loved their costume. Lexi even wore her big fluffy Snow White costume onthe way there and the whole time she was there. She looked so cute. And Emma even wore her wig the whole time. Unbelievable. Lexi was into the games and candy. I was surprised.
I talked to their teachers and apparently Emma is the “idea maker” in the class. She tells everyone what they’re going to play and everyone goes along with it. There is another Emma that is in the class that is her best friend. Lexi’s teachers thought she was very smart and really has “matured” the past couple of weeks. Which I have seen that too. They said she is now handing over her paci and blankie when she walks in the door and never asks for it. They believe she is talking more because she doesn’t have that in her mouth. We really need to get rid of it. Maybe after we get back from Maryland next week and Scott is still out of work we can attack that. Ugh, I’m cringing just saying that.
