let it go…

So here is the final result of a beauty day themed birthday party:

She had her hair crimped, sprayed and teased. She had eye make up and nails done.  She felt like a princess.

It was hard but I let it go and she had an awesome time.  My beautiful little princess had a day to remember.

Then we went home and gave her bath.  lol

quandary…

I have a quandary. My girl is roughly 5 1/2. I know she is aching to get her nails done. I, on the other hand, am not ready for that. Anytime I see a little girl with their nails painted (either finger or toe), I cringe.

She is only five, FIVE!! She is a girly girl.  Loves to pretend she has a boyfriend or pretend that her dolls have a boyfriend or trying to set up her brother with a classmate (yes, this really happened) or get dressed up when she can (for parties or holidays).

When she gets her face painted, she truly feels like a princess.  Once in a blue moon, I will give her some clear Lip Shimmer.  Once again, she feels like a princess.  When she wears her earrings, she feels like a princess.  All fingers point to princess.

But nail painting, that is where I draw the line right now. (No pun intended.)  I did tell her when she turns six I will let her paint them.  And even then, it will be soft colors like pink and clear and glitter.

But when it happens, I think I will cry.   *sigh*

back to school…

Ahh, the first day of school has arrived and gone. I have a first grader in my hands now. New building, new room, new teacher, new and old friends. He has been signed up for the after school program, chess and hip hop.

back at school

We also had a sad little girl who wishes she was going to school as well. We thought she was going to have a hard time letting him go, but she was a trooper. No tears. One more year and she will be off to pre-school. I’m excited for her.

Siblings

I’m hoping a smooth year. Only 169 days left. 😛

potty…

Just potty since we haven’t starting the training yet. But I think Mia is this/close for it though.

Mia has been showing interest in using the potty lately. She has been showing the normal signs. The good thing is that when Diego’s, she does too. I am not ready to start the full on training but when she asks to use the potty, she will be catered. Not going to say no. 🙂

So for the past week or so, she has done number 1 three times in the potty. I think it shocks her the fact that she can do something like that. Today was a much bigger shock: she managed to go number 2. Diego, me and Mia were just staring at the potty like OMG. It was awesome. We did high fives and Way to Go’s. After the shock wore off, she was very proud of herself. We dumped in the toilet and had her do the honors of flushing. We all said “bye-bye” as it flushed away.

If she continues to ask to go to the potty/toilet, we will help her out. I only have one more box of diapers. And that is it. Then we move on to Pull Ups and full on potty training. Mia is growing up. How is that even possible? 😉

she’s two…

She's Two!!!

Mia is officially two. Two years ago, my little girl came into my world and completed my family. I love her to bits. I still can’t believe that my little baby girl is now a toddler girl.

Happy 2nd birthday Mia! I love you so much. *smooch*

nice…

Mia slept thru the night. Why is this so exciting? The last time she did that was May 20, 2009. This is 523 days ago.

And I am not holding my breath on this. It was nice to wake to not find her there. Let’s see when the next time Mia sleeps in her bed all night long. 🙂
