Inspiration comes in a four year old...

I am going to give the blogging another attempt. Phoebe is my main inspiration for this. I find myself thinking several times a day"I need to write this down". She is so completly frustrating, and stubbonly difficult. But so darn funny and cute. She says things that make me look at her in wonder, just amazed at her little personality and brain. I love her and am grateful for her and her little Phoebeisms.

She is very musical, and loves to sing and make up songs. On our walk to school in the mornings she sings the whole way there. She sings in the car, and tonight sang all through dinner. She asks me " Mom, are you enjoying the music?" I say that I am, and I really mean it. I love to hear and watch her sing and dance. Just two words "Momma Mia". She could sing the heck out of that cd. It's just too cute, it makes up for all the "crazy Phoebe" that I have to experience several times a day.

So she has been going to pre school for about a month now. It's is so good for us to have a couple of hours away from eachother. It's fun for her to report to me about what things she did at school, and nice for me to hear about things that she is experiencing without me. She is a really good student and is very good to her teachers and classmates. She has begun to show a real intrest in writing. I bought her a little "Journal" book that she can write in. I was looking in it yesterday and came across a page that interested me. I asked her what it was and she told me. "Oh, those are my poops."

"What do you mean your poops?"

"They're pictures of my poops."

"Phoebe, why are you making pictures of your poops?"

"Just so I know, just in case."

"Just in case of what?"

"Just in case, see this one is fat, and this one is long, this one is really long, that one is skinny."

So, seeing my daughter document her poops inspired me to document my family. Thanks for helping me to see the importance of writing things down Phoebe.
