Wrapped Like a Baby

Sarah Kate has a new bedtime thing. She wants me to wrap her like a baby. That is what she says,"Wrap me like a baby!!!!" The first night I did an old fashioned swaddle wrap. That was not what she wanted. She said "around my head, cover all my head, like a baby." "I just want my face to show."
Tonight it hit me what she is trying to mimic. Our friend Amanda has a new baby. SK LOVES this baby and all babies. She has been seeing Amanda carrying newborn Lela in a sling. The only thing that shows is her precious face. I think Sarah Kate wants to be a baby and this is her way of feeling like one.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I DO go in her room when she is sound asleep and take that blue blanket off. Can you imagine how HOT that would be?????


That is hilarious! My sling will hold up to 40 pounds if you want to borrow it to carry SK in.

That is too funny!!! And yes, I would be sweating in like two seconds under all those quilts. My two year old will say "hold me like a baby" and then he wants me to sing to him! It must be a phase! haha :)

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
