Snow Dayzzzzz and Anna-isms
So, we have been out of school for going on three days now and today was not good mentally for me. I decided this morning to work out just to get some negativity out and the endorphins flowing and guess who followed me down there. You guessed it...Pete and Repeat. They were both crawling around all under my legs and I was about to scream. Of course I couldn't because the room I work out in in the basement is right underneath Justin's office and he is still having to work so...I haven't showered the past two days until after 3pm. Last night, I took a nice bubble bath which I can't remember the last time I did that. Anyway, I am stir crazy and so tired and nauseous on and off so needless to say if I could, I would put skis on Brice and push him a mile down the road to school. People think this is so fun and "yea snow" but I was supposed to work tomorrow and can't even get there. My co-workers have been there for days, some going on 7 day stretches. I know they must be so exhausted and just ready to be home with their families. They are rooming 3 and 4 to a room. If you think about it tonight before you nod off, say a prayer for all those who have made it to work and are now stuck there. Not sure how long this snow is going to stick around and people keep posting their pictures on Facebook with the title of their album "Snowday". Well, guess, what, these are Snow Dayzzzzz...as in on and on.
Anna has been blossoming in her vocabulary lately and I just wanted to share, mostly for my own memories, what she has been saying.
The Grape-Anna wants to see the baby. About a week ago, babycenter.com told us that the baby was about the size of a grape. We told Anna that she couldn't see the baby right now because it was too little and it needed to grow. So, now when she asks, we say, "why can't you see the baby?". She answers, "Grape baby, growwww".
Pa's facial hair-"Anna, what does Pa have on his face?" "Mus-crash!"
Saturday night, Brice went to my parents and so Justin, Anna, and I went out to dinner. On the way home, she kept covering her eyes and saying in the cutest little mouse voice, "I can't seeee, I can't seeee." I laughed the whole way home and then when Brice heard her say it, he cracked up as well.
Sometimes, Anna will run off to play by herself and then I'll say to Brice, "Where's Anna?" She will suddenly appear out of nowhere as if she knew I was about to ask that question and she'll say in her little girl voice, "Riig heeere!" and point to herself.
And, one last Anna-ism. I made dinner the other night and she didn't want to eat, wouldn't even try it and then I said, "Are you not hungry?" She responds, while waving her hand back and forth, "No yike it, no yike it."
So, there is a little bit of and update about what's been going on here. Hope those of you who are reading this and cooped up as well find relief soon!!!
