She also made the girls some really cute mittens--Greta's are purple and Therese's are orange. They wear them quite often!
Last week we went to a Super Bowl party at our old landlord's home (the place where we rented their basement suite several years ago). Anyway, they have a big house and we had our own TV downstairs to use, and tons of snacks! At one point near the end of the game Therese complained dramatically: "Is this almost over, I've been watching the Super Bowl for YEARS!!!"
Also, she loves to dance and sing-a-long to my new pop indulgence album (Taylor Swift's 1989, strangely enough...well it's really catchy!) She sings along, sasses it up...it's fun! I'm going to miss these extra times with her when I go back to work next week for the afternoons! Of course there's the regret, the "I should've done this with her"...always there. But we'll have the mornings, and I usually feel like I'm more engaged when I work a little bit too. It makes me appreciate the times at home more. And I DO like going to work (it's actually a BREAK for me, to be honest!) There is a little anxiety there though...I hope she'll adjust alright.
She also often says lately that when she grows up she wants to stay with "you guys" :-) It's sweet.
Some of her favourite past times nowadays are dressing her dolls, closing her door and playing on her own in her room when Greta's at school, using Greta's fairies and taking them to "flying class", and also cutting her dolls' hair! When Greta has swim class she likes to come along and watch or play in the play room with me and jump around lots.
