Today I had a hard time rolling out of bed and decided that I would stay home and spend some time with Jennifer and the girls to make up for working all weekend. At first Jennifer was confused because she couldn’t believe I was actually staying home from work.
It was a good thing I did, because I would have missed Emily’s first haircut. We found a haircut place in the mall and Abby got her hair trimmed first in order to show her little sister how it was done. After that it was Emily’s turn and it didn’t look like it was going to be easy. The only way we could get her to calm down enough to cut her hair was to have Jennifer sit down in the chair first and have Emily sit in her lap. She was a trooper and now she looks a lot better without hair flying everywhere.
Next, we went shopping at Target. While we were there, Jennifer bought Emily her first panties. We will be starting her potty training real soon. We’ve gotten her to tinkle on the potty a couple of times, but she doesn’t quite understand that you are supposed to tinkle exclusively on the potty. We got her Dora the Explorer panties as a reward if she successfully tinkles on the potty.
Finally, this afternoon we went down to the park in order to run some energy out of the girls. They had a fun time and I brought the camera with me and I will be posting some of these pictures this week.
