Whatcha Doin'?

That's been the question of late. Every few minutes, M says, "Mommy...whatcha doin'?". And she will continue to say it over and over until you answer. Yes, it's cute and funny but it's also highly annoying. Just close your eyes and picture this:

- Driving in the car back home from the park. It's a 10 minute drive and 4 times you hear, "Mommy...whatcha doin'?"

- In the bathroom where you are trying your hardest to pee in hear a knock followed by "Mommy...whatcha doin'?"

Now you try and remain calm and answer, ignore it, or ask her the same...but she doesn't relent. It's become the bane of my day right now. I figure I will pay her back when she's 16 by calling her every 5 minutes on a Friday night asking the same question! Fair...I think so! :)

Now onto what we have been doing...

- We were back in NJ last week to visit. C's friend Sophie was in town and we got to see her. Bad me forgot my camera, so there's no pictures...but they had a blast!

- C started tennis lessons and loves them! She now is saying she'll only go if she can hit the ball to another person, but we're far from that. If nothing else, she's running around for 45 minutes! Of course, M is jealous and wants to join in on the fun. If only they had a sibling class...

- M suffered a sinus infection right before we left for NJ, but is feeling much better. Her speech is so much clearer now as well. I'm not sure if it's just that she's getting older or being sick. But it's really great!

- I've been making more of an effort to find a playgroup with kids M's age in it. We went to an activity the other day where the kids were all around 2, and she had a great time! I'm hoping we'll continue to be able to do things like that without C around. Poor M just wants to follow her big sister around all the time that she doesn't play with kids her own age!

- C had Olympic Day at school on Thursday and M and I went to help out. It was a lot of fun! All the kids participated in different events and at the end they got gold medals! C loved every minute of it!

May will be a busy month here. We've got something going on almost every weekend!! Hopefully I'll have some great pictures to post!!

Rt is into the word "why." It is truly the most annoying thing I've ever heard.

The best part, is I ask him "why" back sometimes and he says

"Because I said."

whoops! haha

Tennis sounds like fun. We are going to try tee-ball and soccer this summer.

Yea for playgroups!
