Today was Allisyn's first day back to school from break. The house felt weird without her. The little girls didn't seem to be bothered by it. They go back to Sonshine School tomorrow. I'm relieved, Piper needs an outlet. She drove us a bit nuts today. Michael went back to work tonight for two nights, then he is off for his regular week off.
Gabi has been really good at playing with herself. Today, while Michael took Piper to speech, Gabi got out her Minnie car and was looking for the Mickey car that goes with it. We went all over the house looking with her calling out, "Poor Mickey Mouse. Where are you?" It was cute for the first 5 minutes, after that, not so much.
Tonight we had breakfast for dinner. With my goal of eating more natural and less processed, we made from scratch. I don't think I will ever buy a mix again. We had sausage to go with the pancakes. When Dustin and Heather watched the girls for us while we went to the Thunder game, they made pancakes. Gabi ate their pancakes. She did not eat ours. We asked her why she was not eating our pancakes and her response was, "You're not Dustin and Heather." Feeling the love. When she got down from her chair she still had a piece of sausage. She loves sausage. First, she was spinning her circles in the living room with it. Then she followed Allisyn into our bathroom and talked Allisyn into helping her get into our bathtub. That is where she finished her sausage. Who does think the bathtub is a great place to finish your dinner? Especially if it is sausage. Then she continued to play in the tub for several minutes.
Right now all the girls are in their rooms watching their before bed movie. Gabi and I have already had our nightly discussion about how she needs to start being a big girl and sleep in her big girl bed. She tried to tell me she was still a baby, so she could sleep in my bed. I came back with this is mommy and daddy's bed, not Gabi's. She did not appreciate it and left the bed and room. We will see how it goes.
