One-on-One time…

So for those of you who are bitter that I’m on vacation…you might want to skip this blog.

It’s a funny thing being a mom. I spend all my time with my kids but, yesterday I got to spend one-on-one time with Adriah and I got to see a whole new side of her.

We already knew that she’s talks non-stop! (My sister says I need to watch the movie “Definitely, Maybe” because the little girl never stops talking either and I would laugh at the similarities!) Getting to share new things with Adriah means I get to learn about her as she reacts to each new thing. Let me give you an example: Matt stayed back with Leyton last night so Adriah and I went exploring…we went on new walking paths, played at the park, played hopscotch on the stones and ended up at a campfire. (SIDENOTE:I grew up going to camp then became a counselor as soon as I was old enough and still remember tons of songs we sang around the fire. No surprises there!) So, last night, I got to teach Adriah a classic echo song and then we made a smore to share (of course, she wanted 5 more but I cut off because the night before she was up til 10pm.)

Then to top off the day…we bought sponge curlers in Lutsen, I put them in Adriah’s hair before she went to bed and she slept in them. This morning she woke up to curly hair…just like her friend Delaney! I used to  put curlers in my own hair every Saturday night so, my hair would be curly for church the next day! This may sound dumb to you but, it was really fun to do girly things with my daughter. On vacation I don’t have the same responsibilities…and I’m more intentional about pouring into my daughter…I love her!

That is so special to do isn’t it! We have a 5 year old and 2 year old and it is so much fun to do that with each one individually because a person does tend to miss how much they each have their own personalities. Have fun!!

I totally wore the pink sponge curlers every Saturday night to get ready for church also!
Those of us with straight hair just want to look like Delaney for one day…

Bella loves to have Delaney and Vicki hair too. I am so glad that you get this time with her – she will always remember it!

We need to see the pics of the curly hair! We’ll have to curl Adriah’s and straighten Delaney’s and take a pic of them together.

Oh, how I wish Avery would put up with sponge curlers. They remind me of dance recitals in my youth.

How cute! I used to have those curlers too! Unfortunately my mum ‘doesn’t do hair’ (we always had short hair til we were old enough to take care of it ourselves) So I bought these curlers, I put them in by myself, made the curls way too tight & woke up in the morning with a frizzy mess!! I had to wash it straight out 🙁 Lucky Adriah having a Mummy who enjoys doing her hair for her. I can’t wait til my daughter is old enough for things like this. Please, lets see the pics of Adriah’s hair!!
