Geesh! So, I knew today was going to be a little busy, but it was insane and I didn’t feel all that great all day. The best part of the day was waking up and playing trains with Novalie for an hour. We had to do it first thing because I knew I would be busy! I love watching her imagination at work and playing the story lines she thinks up.
After trains, I asked her to get dressed and she came out like this:
Too cute! I registered Novalie for kindergarten this morning and the school nurse said she needed another chicken pox vaccine before she could go to kindergarten. She has only had one dose and she needs two. I just took her to the doctor in April for her kindergarten shots and she got 5 shots! So, at this point I don’t really care that she needs another dose! I had the chicken pox, I survived! Are they really not going to let her go to kindergarten if she doesn’t get the second dose? Her doctor said she could get it at her 6 year old check up. I am just annoyed, that’s all.
Novalie started T-ball today. Her team name is the Blue Jays and there are 9 boys and Novalie. Just the thing she loves.
I have been teaching Novalie to read for some time now. She knows a ton of sight words and the sounds all the letters make, but she was having a hard time getting the concept of sounding out the words. My mom bought her the “Bob” books and they are amazing! She can now sound out words and is reading! She is so smart and I am so proud of her!
Back to my Monday after I was done in town, I somehow managed to clean the house(no small task), go for an exercise walk, take Novalie to the park, make dinner, paid some bills, make some phone calls I needed to make, answered some e-mails and now I am going to watch “The Bachelor.” Silly, I know, but I love that show! They never stay together, but I always think they will! (We didn’t have FHE because we are having it on Tues. for the next 6 weeks because of our schedule!)
One more thing on my mind, since this has become sort of a journal for me and I don’t want to forget yesterday. Novalie loves rocks, she loves collecting them, we have well over a hundred rocks in our house. Not only does she collect them, but they all have a purpose or a certain person they belong to and somehow she remembers what that purpose is. So, yesterday for Mother’s Day, she didn’t go out and pick me flowers, she went out and picked out very special Mother’s Day rocks. I love it! I will keep them forever! She is so AWESOME and I am the luckiest woman in the world to be her mommy! I love you, Novalie!
