Yesterday, on our way home from school, Peyton said, "Momma, I'm getting bigger." I asked her, "How are you getting bigger?" Peyton said, "Momma, I'm just doing it." So cute. She says a lot of cute things. Sunday morning she woke up and said, "I'm very hungry. I want pudding. Pudding sounds great!" My favorite is when we are leaving her and she'll yell, "hug and kiss, hug and kiss." I also LOVE when she is hugging me and says, "I love you so much." She's such a sweet girl. But of course there are things I don't love as much. One of my most loathed phrases is,"not fair mommy!" Yuck! I hate it when she says this. I feel like I have a glimpse into her teen years. I'm already looking into boarding schools! When she gets in trouble her voice gets very serious and has a tinge of a Chinese accent. She'll ask, "Why I trouble?" and put her hands out. If I'm fussing at her she'll use that same funny voice and ask,"Why you talk this way?" It's hard to stay serious because she's so goofy! She is still doing well after yesterdays car accident, but her story has changed a bit. Now it ends with a monster(tow truck) taking daddy's car!
Today, Kris and Peyton were in a car accident. Someone turned in front of him at an intersection. They are both okay and the car only has minor damage. I am so thankful that Kris was paying attention or things could have been worse. (MY HERO!!) Right after the cars collided Peyton said, "WHOA! What happened?!!" She was a little shaken up after the police cars arrived with their flashing lights. Then, on the way to school, Peyton told Munner, "We need to talk." After Munner questioned her about her well-being, Peyton did say that her nose and pinky finger hurt. That's my little drama queen!
Peyton loves ice cream cake. She also loves to sing and celebrate any occasion. From Birthdays to Arbor day, she wants a cake. Munner(Kris' mom)helps to support Peyton's addiction to cake and singing. Last night Peyton sang her rendition of "happy father's day" to Kris and Grandpa and it was precious! I tried to upload the video but I was unsuccessful, but I'll keep trying!
Okay folks, everyone knows that 2 year olds are a handful. But, I have managed to avoid this commonality until now. Peyton is earning stars in class now that she has moved up to the young 3's class. Well, for the last several days she has had stars 'taken away' and also had the details of her naughty deeds on the back of her notes. One read,"Peyton kept her friends from sleeping. She was singing loudly and throwing her blanket." The next one read, "Peyton threw wood chips on the playground and Peyton threw toys in the classroom." Now as a teacher I understand this is a problem, but as a mother I am thinking, she has a beautiful voice that the kids are sure to enjoy and if you don't want kids to throw wood chips, don't have em! Well, the teacher side of me began to take her behavior seriously. Each morning she would enter school assuring us that she would get all of her stars by following the rules. Well, Wednesday it finally happened! Peyton called me from Kris' phone and said, "Mommy, I got three stars! I did it!" She later returned home with daddy and two treats from Baskin Robbins. Can we afford for her to be good everyday?
