Naked Baseball

I'm sitting in the living room and Ella and Jeremy are in Nannie's room watching tv. Ella comes running into the living room and says, "Mommy...Daddy and I are watching naked baseball!"

I said, "Oooo weee...what channel is that on!?! I'm changing the channel!"

I then hear Jeremy yelling from Nannie's room to clarify, "We're watching Yankee baseball. Not naked baseball."

A girl can dream, right? :)

How Many Tines Do I Have To Tell You?

Ella and Jeremy were lying her in bed today. Her bed is against the wall. And she likes to put her feet on the wall and kick on it. Well Jeremy had told her to stop. So a few minutes later she's back to doing it again. And Jeremy says, "Ella, I asked you to stop. How many times and I going to have to ask you?" That was meant to be a silent question. But with a straight face as if she's really answering his question says, "um...3!" Jeremy didn't think that was so funny, But I died out laughing.

My poor husband was not feeling well at all the other day. It was serious enough that we took him to the hospital to where he was diagnosed with pneumonia. So we are here in the hospital for night #2. Well I left a little while ago to go get the girls' and bring them up to see their Daddy before they went to PaPa and Nay-Nay's house to spend the night. My 3 year is very smart and understands way more than she probably should in her 3 years having just gone through everything with her Nannie (my Mom). So we're in the car driving to the hospital and she starts talking to me.

"Mommy, Nannie was in the hospital." I said, "Yes, honey, she was." She says, "Now, Daddy's in the hospital." I said, "Yes, honey, he is." At this point my heart began to sink. Because I can feel where she might be going with this.

So then Ella says, "Nannie's in Heaven. Is Daddy going to Heaven too?"

My heart broke for her knowing that she was thinking that. Unfortunately her only hospital experiences (not that you want to have any) were not the very positive outcome ones since Nannie died so quickly after coming home from the hospital. So I just reassured her that Daddy was not going to Heaven yet and that he was in the hospital to get better. Hospitals are there to help people. And that not all people who go to the hospital go to Heaven right after.

She seemed to understand and went on about her merry way. I just hate that she's having to think like that as a 3 year old. A 3 year old shouldn't have to be worrying about hospitals or death. But she's so smart and I'm so proud of her for asking the questions that she's thinking about.

Bragging Rights

Look at what my brilliant 3 year old can do. She can write her name!! I don't think I could write my name until the 2nd grade. No, just kidding. But I KNOW I could not write my name at 3. She's so smart. I'm so proud of her. I wish I could take the credit for this. But her school has been working with them on their name. They are getting them ready for Kindergarten next year. I can't believe that Kindergarten is almost here!

Be Still My Heart!!

Go Redbirds

We went to our Memphis AAA Redbirds games last night. We had so much fun!

Daddy and his girls. I realize the I need to hand the camera over to Daddy so I can have my Mommy and my girls pictures. :)

These next two Megan was watching the mascot, Rocky the Redbird. She loved him.

When things get boring go for the I-phone

Ella watching the fireworks after the game

He's such a good Daddy!

Ella's been dying to paint his toenails so guess who let her do it the other day. Such a sweet Daddy!

5th Place!

Well I just completed my first ever fishing tournament! Wright Medical holds one every year and my father in law and husband have been wanting to do it. The only caveat is that a Wright Medical employee has to be in the boat...aka...me. So I looked at the two and decided who was going to help me win the tournament and that was my father in law. Ha! Just kidding honey! We had a blast. And I thank my father in law for being so patient and kind to this novice fisherwoman. And we came in 5th place!!! Out of 28 boats! I was so proud. Thank you PaPaw!! I had a blast! We'll get them next year!

I could get used to driving a boat. Although my preference is to not do it with 7 layers on. It was a little chilly the day before the tournament. That was practice day.

Headed to weigh in

Me and PaPaw with our prized fish.

I even held the big one!

Can You Say...

We ordered pizza for dinner the other night for the kids. Well the pizza man arrives. Jeremy opens the door and goes to get the money and leaves our spunky 3 year old with the poor pizza man. I hear her say, "This is Tanner (our dog). Can you say Tanner?" I bet he's never been asked to repeat a name before like he's a 1 year old. :)
