We've been trying to complete some of our many unfinished home improvement projects. Yesterday evening we painted some of the trim on our balcony that M to the Izz-A put up last summer. Kate insisted that she help. Insisted is putting it lightly - and saves face as far as my parenting skills are concerned...
Apparently it's a hilarious sight to watch me paint, because Matt's dad told me today that he and Mrs. Shirley (Matt's stepmother) were watching me through their window across the water and were laughing the whole time. Without knowing, I provide everyone with free entertainment. Thanks guys, I'll be here all week.
In other news, Kate is pretty pumped about the $5 chair I bought her today.
And I crossed off yet another item from my "When I'm a Parent I'll Never..." list and broke down and bought Kate a pair of shoes with a character on them.
Look closely and you can see Dora laughing at me. I've always disliked clothing (and shoes) with cartoon characters on them, but hey, she loves Dora, and I love her, therefore I love Dora, too. At least I think that's how it works.
After dinner, Granny Shirley asked Kate and Kennedy to help her pick peaches. They picked them. I ate 'em.
Before I go, I want to say Happy Birthday to Granny T. She's always willing to help out in any way that she can. We love her so much and are thankful to have her living close to us now.
Last weekend we took her and Paw to the Mill House restaurant. Granny helped out with Kate and made the ride there a smooth one.
Check Paw out in the two pics above. I don't think he's a big fan of my somewhat frivolous photography. I'm almost positive he thinks I'm weird.
RPF (Random Paw Factoid): He refers to pacifiers as 'sucky wads'. That's what his family called them when he was a boy and he's called them that ever since. And he thinks I'm weird. You don't even want to know the face I made the first time I heard him say it.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Granny!
And that's pretty much what's up.
Have a great Friday ya'll!
