|Molly after her spa treatment|
Teddy flashed me the biggest smile when I met him outside of his classroom. His smile is breathtaking. As we walked around the corner of school building, he tossed his backpack at me and yelled, "Race you to the fence!" What a cheat! He took off in a flash and I followed, willing my legs to fly :) We must have looked like to race horses reaching for the finish line. What Teddy didn't expect was that I'd catch up as much as I did :) I almost (almost!) beat him. By the time I also tapped the fence we were both winded and laughing hysterically. What a fun surprise!! We crossed the street and walked over to the car where upon seeing Nina Teddy said, "Hi there Nina, you look more beautiful than ever!" Nina beamed as she said hello and told him how we had bathed Molly. The love that Teddy has for his sister is beautiful!

Before bed, Nina asked for a fudge-cicle so I brought her one. Apparently, she was so moved that she said, "I'm starting to love you Mama...I used to not like you but now I love you!" I burst into hysterics and thanked her for starting to love me, that I was glad it happened later rather than never :) She smugly laughed at me and returned to her fudge-cicle.
Sadly, although the bedtime routine was relatively easy today, Nina woke up at 10:50pm and couldn't talk. This completely panicked her!! She tried to say something but no sound would come out. She looked painfully scared :( Luckily, I figured out that she was upset because she was hot and couldn't find her caterpillar toy. We found her toy and I reassured her everything was okay. Then she explained that she was hungry for cereal, which I brought her. Wen I brought her cereal she said, "Thank you mama!" with biggest smile ever and then went back to sleep.
