Polly turns 4!!

It's true.
She is now 4.
And NOT little in any way.
Ask her.

For her birthday she requested ice cream only.

She picked out zhu zhu pets, Chunk and Num Nums

for her birthday shopping trip with Grandma Dedee.

Macy has been bargaining with her

ever since to give her one.

Polly loves the power.

At 4,Polly is
shy, funny, sweet as pie
obedient, even tempered,
just the cutest thing ever
and I can't get enough of her.

What if...

(Polly with her treasures lined up for bed)

Polly is always talking about "What If" lately.
What if we were all eyeballs and nothing else?
What if our house was made of cats?
What if you were my size and
I was your size and I was in your belly?

WARNING! Potty humor coming.
If you don't like it, don't read it.
It's kind of gross.
Yesterday I heard Polly say,
"Mom, come wipe me
because I went poop AND pee."
"It's kind of like
bread with honey, huh mom?"
She did not appreciate
my outburst of laughter.
I couldn't help it.
Then I laughed out loud again
in bed at 6:00 this morning.

What if I didn't document this?

Love notes

I am feeling the love lately
It's coming through handwritten notes.
They're the best.
(I love you past the sunset)
(I love you. My heart is bleeding.)

This one gave me some leverage

for at least a whole day.

All I had to say is

What happened to my best kid?

Worked every time.

Dear blogger/ friends,

Why is my spacing messed up and why can't I control it?

Love, Amanda
