Need someone to discipline your children? We can provide help.

And the help's name is Emily LaBlue. She may only be 23 months, but she can do some discipline. Let me ellaborate----The other afternoon Gracie talked back to Kris. Yes, our sweet little girl talked backed to her daddy. A rare occasion. Anyway, Kris got on to her and told her how talking back was disrespectful and all that good stuff. And basically just told her that talking back was a big no, no. Well, Gracie then went to sit in Emily's room to watch something on Emily's tv. Well, Emily decided that Kris didn't "do enough." So, she took the discipline of our five year old into her own hands. She went to her doorway, knowing that Gracie was in her room, and looked at Gracie and said, "NO, NO!!!" and then closed the door, leaving Gracie alone in the room. Kris was about to pass out from laughter. Gracie did get a little mad at her, but then she laughed. Emily is a hoot!!! There's not a day that the girl doesn't do something to make us laugh.

A daughter, a niece, and the day I almost peed my pants!

In July, Beth, my sweet niece, came to stay with my mom and dad (grandma and grandpa) for the week. On one of those days I took Gracie and Beth to the movies, to eat, and to get their nails done. I had a blast, but the most memorable moment for me was at the nail salon. I was getting a pedicure and the girls were sitting at a table waiting for their nails to dry. Beth was on one side, Gracie on the other. You know--where you sit when they are doing your nails. Gracie was on the "manicurist" side. Beth was the one being manicured. Get that picture in your head. It's very important. They begin by just chatting with each other--so sweet. Well, then they decided to pretend they worked there. Also, this is a small salon and there were only two other ladies there. As they pretended to play I notice they were using "accents." Yes, accents, and it was HILARIOUS. Don't worry--no one got offended. They laughed and told me how precious they were, and to this day the lady still asks me EVERYTIME I go "Why you not bring your niece?" The girls left a lasting impression. Now I will provide a glimpse of the conversation---remember, they were using "accents."

Gracie: " want you nails done today???

Beth: "yes, thank you."

switched roles

Beth: "What color you want.. We have lots of colors"

Gracie: "I want red, pink, purple, blue, and green."

Beth (when finished): " like it, nodding her head."

switched roles

Gracie: "You want flower today?"

Beth: "Yes, that is very pretty."

Gracie: "Thank you. It costs you 20 80 dollars."

Oh, I do love these girls!!!!!!!

Are we cool or what?

So, it seems that blogging is a pretty cool thing to do. And since we are so cool, we obviously had to start our own blog. LOL!!! We'll see how it goes!!!!
