This is the phrase that has shaped the way we think of rowan...we used to think of her as quiet, ornery, and dramatic, but recently, she has shown her sassy side (ok, let's be honest, we knew it was there:)...whenever we ask rowan to do something she believes she has already done, she answers, "I did it!" She, of course, says it in her sassiest voice possible. This is just one of the reasons that I suddenly feel like my babies are way too old!
Parker takes everything in...feels guilty when someone is sad, can't hardly talk when he is in trouble, makes jokes when he knows he should be quiet (he is sooo my child)...he also plays sports like there is nothing else to do at home. Even on days that I am completely exhausted and try to get him to sit and watch tv, he runs around playing catch with himself or incessantly dribbling...I swear I hear a ball bouncing in my sleep...
We potty-trained Row last week (after she took off her diaper and pooped under the Christmas tree)...you would think that I would be excited, but for some reason I can't help but feel sad...my baby is 'officially' no longer a baby. It was so, after the first two days, easy. She has been so good about telling us when she needs to go and she now seems so old (tear).
The two of them really do play so well together...it is sometimes shocking, really...the other day, I asked Rowan if she was going to be nice to her teacher and she said, "I will not hit my teacher..." then she said, "I will not hit parker...but I will tackle him!" Ha! He has taught her well, she is going to be one tough cookie. Despite the tackling and ball-throwing, Parker is never embarrassed to sit and have a tea party with Row when she asks him:).
I feel like I am so tired all the time that I am missing out on some of the best moments. I'm afraid of waking up and seeing them in middle school...if only Brady would let me have just one more......:)
