Lilly: We gotta get dressed so we can go to the gym!
Mama: We are going to stay home today to get rid of our coughs, we don't want to get anyone at the gym sick, do we?
Lilly: But, but, my Monday friends were expecting me!
8 p.m. Mama tucks Lilly into bed and explains that Daddy is working late, but will come and tuck her in when he gets home.
9:15 p.m. Daddy sneaks into her room to find her sitting up, arms crossed. "It is pitch black outside and you are very very late."
8 p.m. Mama tucks Lilly into bed
Mama: "Honey, you need to close your eyes for sleep now, no more songs."
Lilly: "But it's not dark out. I'm not sleeping until it's dark out."
Mama: "Remember mommy told you in the summer time it stays lighter later, but we still need to go to bed."
Lilly: "Why does it stay lighter later?"
Mama: "It has to do with the moon and sun and earth--the days are longer in the summer time so the sun shines longer."
Lilly: "I think that is stuff moms make up and tell their kids so they go to bed sooner."
A fight between mama & Lilly persists as Lilly refuses to use manners and thank her friend for inviting us over to play. After her punishment for not using manners, she says. "Don't tell me what to do in front of my friends."
My mom may have said it best when she said, "That child has walked this earth before." Not sure I totally believe in that stuff, but seriously, she sounds like she's 12 this week. Where the hell did my baby go?
Now, back to meeting with other moms and making up stuff...like the planets orbiting in the solar system.

As for the rest of Spring, this week brings us another recital, so we will hope to avoid any incidents similar to last year.We are also gardening for the first time, so I'll blog about that as we progress through the season. Lastly, we will be attending a princess party to watch the Royal Wedding this week! Lots to do, but must get healthy first!
Outside of church--she kept checking herself out in all the mirrors we saw that day! I think she liked the princess look!
Sneaking some jelly beans in at church

I couldn't make the trek to Houston to cheer on my Alma mater as they win a national championship, so we did the next best thing. We headed down to the Women's Final Four in Indianapolis for the free family events they hosted. The girls had a blast and we added another reason we love living in Indy to our growing list! Here's the Top 10 reasons Addy & Lilly may be great recruits for the Lady Bulldogs: Class of 2029:
7. If they get injured, they can always fall back on that top-of-the-line degree and go into broadcasting.
6. They are learning the "Butler Way" early in their lives and passion & dedication shows--check out that concentration!
5. They show tremendous respect for coaches.
4. Their blue eyes sparkle when wearing the school colors.
3. They are currently wearing size 11 shoes for toddlers--last average I heard was an 8. That could say something about their height.
2. They already know the fight song.
1. They'd be close enough to come home for family dinners :-)
Let's Go Dawgs!
