I don’t even know what that title means. I just typed “friday night” and the “fights” part came rolling off my fingers unbidden. No fights here. (That was last night. And the girls this morning. And this afternoon. And earlier this evening.) I’ve forgotten to remind myself (and others) lately that all the cool people stay home on Friday nights and do nothing. Remember that? Anyone still in that club with me, or have you all jumped?
The girls and I spent the afternoon organizing and re-arranging things in preparation for my new (old) desk that’s coming tomorrow. Livi looooves to organize. Ava not so much. I used to think that Liv looked like her dad and acted like him, Ava looked like me and acted like me. But Livi’s acting more and more like I did when I was younger. It’s fun to watch–with little bits of humble and scary thrown in. We moved here last July in such a whirlwind–with no time to purge or pack correctly before we came.And we were both in the middle of a million projects and fell waaay behind. I’ve been fighting the clutter ever since. I’m aiming for September first to have my life completely in order.
Before we left to go shopping this morning, Livi found a dollar from Tooth Daddy and a dollar from Grandma from a few months ago. Ava had a grandma-dollar too, so Livi had $5 to spend and Ava $4. Livi got cute alphabet stickers at Michael’s and a travel activity pad w/markers at Target. Ava spent all her money in the birthday party favor aisle. She got a “5” candle, b-day confetti, and a pkg of 8 little tiara combs. She’s completely obsessed with her birthday. Thank goodness we only have five more days.
Ava wants me to cut her hair off–to her shoulders. I’ve always said that I’d let my girls do what they want with their hair. Making someone keep their hair long, curly and gorgeous when they don’t want to mostly just boils down to Mommy pride. I think I’ll let her cut four or five inches, but not quite up to her shoulders. Gulp. I may be able to just cut it myself. Thin, curly hair is much easier than super-thick, wavy hair (Livi’s).
I tried a new recipe tonight that I got from someone on xanga–can’t remember who. I’ll blog about it Monday. Have a relaxing weekend!!
