01:54 pm - Should go in Riley's LJ, but alas...
Yesterday her aftercare teacher and her regular teacher HAD to tell me the two funny things Riley did.
1. In aftercare, she was playing dress-up with a little boy and he put on a headress thing that had a cape, turned to Riley with his arms outstreched and Riley said, "Well, this is awkward." !!!!!!! OMG - crack me up. I had told her the night before, when she was laying on me in an odd position, "this is awkward". She is a fast learner.
2. Right before nap, she was soooo tired but had to use the bathroom. So she went, but came out to ask for help in putting her clothes back on. Her teacher told her that Riley could do, she's done it before, but the teacher could tell her where things went. Riley went back into the bathroom and came out with both feet in one leg of her yellow capris and the other pant leg was hanging out in front of her. She waddled out and the teacher LOL. Riley smirked and waddled into the nap room. THe nap room teacher LOL and Riley said, "I know, I know." Riley's regular teacher had to leave the classroom, she was laughing so hard. (She has two teachers in the room at once, so no one was left without adult supervision).
On my own notes, Riley will ask me for "conbersations" on the stairwell. We play dolls and she has them drive to swimming lessons and dance lessons. She wants to be a big sister, but ONLY to a baby sister - NOOOO baby brothers according to her. She keeps asking when will I be ready to have a baby...I keep telling her in a year. (Hey - I've just lost 35 pounds, I want this body for a while. Plus the day care will kill me unless she is in kindergarten). Hope I'm not missing a window of opportunity. But on the other hand, she likes to pretend to be a baby sometimes too. When she's not asking why she can't drive and reach things. I love her so much. I always want to freeze the time we are in - when she was a newborn, when she was one, when she was two, and now.
