Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

I Needed a Moment

Yesterday I wallowed in my sadness. My baby girl turned 3. I think, as moms, we all have that moment when we realize there will be no more babies in the house, when our children get to the age of not needing us every moment of every day. For me, that day was yesterday, and it's been creeping up on me for the last couple weeks. I'm over it now. I just needed a moment.

We had cake and ice cream with Mima and Papa and Puddin Pop exclaimed "This is the best birthday ever." Sometimes simpler is better. We had parties for the last 2 birthdays so decided to just focus on making her day special without adding a whole bunch of people to distract us.

The gift...

I know some of you have been waiting to see. She, like her brother, asks for everything she sees on TV, but never really remembers, nor does she get attached to any one thing. Boog got a Nintedo DS for Christmas and she loves to play with it. She is not very good at maneuvering through the actual game levels but is very impressive in finding her way around and selecting the individual mini-games she likes. You can show her one time how to get to a certain area of the game (usually a series of 4-5 buttons) and she remembers. She also really likes the touch screen features. So...

We got her this

Leapster by Leap Frog. Recommended for ages 4-8 (We're a year early) this game is intended to help teach colors, shapes, numbers and letters for the pre-k group and grows with them through different games and advanced levels. We included the Disney Princess game.

PP now has her own hand-held game. She has rarely been seen without it. With features like drawing, sing-a-long songs and touch scree fireworks, she is entertained, working on improving hand/eye coordination, and the fighting over the DS has ceased...and it's pink and purple, what more could a Princess ask for?
