Chloe made my day today. She got herself up, got dressed, and packed her lunch without any supervision. It was her "surprise" to me. It was indeed an amazing gift to not have the usual morning prodding and frantic pushing out the door. And she stayed true to her word, no skirt today. I hope her friends wear skirts again to school so she will want to start wearing them again.
Last week we had a "Valentine's Party." Chloe is obsessed with Valentine's Day. So we had a party last week. Basically a few of her little friends came over and frosted some heart shaped brownies. And they made some paper chains to count down to Valentine's Day. I have to say, I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with those party plans without 1. having to look on pinterest or 2. having to go to the store. Okay, well I did have to buy some baking ingredients, but still... I am glad that 5 year olds have very low party expectations, and I would like to keep it that way.
Speaking of gifts, I finally understand the purpose of Pinterest! It is my Gift list for Don! and I know how much he loves those! No need to post them on here anymore! ; )
