Going To Grandma's

Tori is now enamored with staying in the hotel on Friday night and going to see Despereaux with Grandma this weekend, or so she thinks. Christmas still does not compute with her, though perhaps it will when she unwraps her dollhouse. I have moved her table into her room to hold a Little Pony carousel she is getting, and she has decided to use the table and chairs for her dolls. She puts out cupcakes and tea cups and they all have a tea party. Even her big brother joins in on the fun. I wondered when she would decide to throw a tea party.

Bitten By the Travel Bug

Tori doesn't care about Christmas at home. She wants to get into the car and go see people. Everyday she asks me when we are going on a trip. I will be surprised if that girl doesn't do something for a living that involves travel. She went a short trip today, to the dentist to have a hole in tooth she was born with filled. Annie took her and said she was good.

Poor Tori. She lays awake at night telling herself stories and gets up cranky from too little sleep. She is a total night owl like her dad. Christian, Eli and I are early birds. We like to rise with the sun and wind down with dusk. This does not spell good when Tori starts school and has to get up and get going early on in the day. Maybe the excitement of being at school will be enough too motivate her.

Friday with Mom

That is what Tori gets. She was sad yesterday about Eli getting the morning with his dad at the doctor's office, so I offered to keep her home on Friday so we can clean house together and take care of some other things. She is looking forward to dusting with Mom. Wish me luck. On another note, she has been making major progress with the potty training. THis weekend I am putting her in panties to see if she can get through the day without having an accident.

Miss Carol

My friend was Tori's teacher at church, and she loved up to her big time. She talks about Carol quite a bit now and will be surprised to see a new teacher this Saturday night. Carol trades off teaching with another woman. I hope Tori likes her just as much as she does Carol.
