Worst Mother of the Year Award goes to Me!

Okay so I was doing laundry and working when I hear a knock on the door. It is the little boy from Izzy's bus stop. That is when I remember that it was a two hour early dismissal today. Crap. He said the bus was waiting for me. So I grab my keys and jump in my car. I get to the bus stop and guess what? No bus.

So, I haul butt down the road (left my purse at home, so I'm praying I don't get pulled over, though cops rarely ever come into our neighborhood) I get out onto Patuxent Blvd. and I see the bus going over the hill. I stomp the gas and start flashing my lights. The bus pulls over and I get out and profusely apologize for being a forgetful space cadet. The bus driver said it's no problem, it happens all the time with two hour early dismissals (that still doesn't make me feel any better, and when I see Izzy crying I feel even worse, poor thing probably thinks I forgot about her).

I scoop up Izzy and carry her to the car. I tell her I'm sorry and that I didn't forget about her, I just forgot that school got out early today. I reassured her that if I hadn't been able to catch the bus before it left our neighborhood that it would have taken her back to school and I would come pick her up there. She was fine, and told me, "It's okay mommy everyone forgets things sometimes." When we got home she pretty much forgot about the whole thing and was as happy as a clam. Me, on the other hand, I still feel super crappy and feel like I should have my mommy license revoked. Blasted two hour early dismissals! Grrrrrrrrrr!

Pillow Pet!

Grandma Lori got Izzy a pillow pet. Ever since they first came out with these things Izzy has always wanted the ladybug one. So, Lori decided to get it for her. You should have seen how excited this girl was when her grandma gave it to her. She ran around hugging it saying "It's a pillow pet! I got a pillow pet! I love it!"

Here she is with her new friend Rosy. She is so cute. She takes Rosy everywhere, and she only got her today, like ten minutes ago. She is in love and she and Lori are playing with it right now, pretending that Rosy is their new best friend. So cute.

Back to Scool Night!

Clay and I left Izzy with Lori and went to Back to School Night at her school. We got to chat with her teacher and listen about what they would be doing throughout the year and we got to see some of her art work. Above is a picture of herself.

And this was underneath the picture of herself. It was just too cute and funny. If you can't read it, it says: "My name is Isabelle. I like to play barbies. My favorite color is pink. I can wash by myself." Isn't that just too precious.

We also meet the parents of her best friend at school. The girl's name is Abigail (just like her cousin) They are in the same class, ride the bus together and they live in our neighborhood, well several streets over, but it's still right here. Her mother and I exchanged phone numbers and we are going to get the girls together for play dates. Also, I thought this was so adorable and thoughtful. Abigail's birthday was the first week of school and Izzy made her a birthday card. I didn't know about it until last night when Abby's mom told me about it. They were so excited that she had a friend at school because their daughter is an only child too. I'm so glad I have such a wonderful little girl who is so thoughtful and caring. I think she and her friend Abby are going to be great friends. Izzy already calls her "my bestest friend Abigail."

Picture Day!

Today is picture day at school and Izzy is so excited about it. She picked out which dress she wanted to wear and couldn't wait to put it on and dance around in it. I made her wear a pair of pink shorts under her dress, because when you're five you're just not lady-like at all. She has a goofy smile in this picture, I just hope she doesn't do that for her school pictures. If so, well...whatever, she's five, it doesn't really matter and it will still be cute and not to mention humorous.

Daddy Time

Izzy loves spending time with her daddy. She always gets so excited when he gets home. She loves to crawl up in his lap and color, read, or just snuggle and watch T.V. Daddies are so fun. :)

I'm behind on my posts. The scouts had a Pine Wood Derby at our church and Clay made a car for it this year. His car looked awesome (don't know why I don't have a picture) but...well...looks don't win races. His car lost a wheel during its first run. But Clay did place in the competition. Yep, that's right Dead Last. He thought it was so hilarious when they awarded him a brake drum and rotor with a little plaque on it that says Pax Derby 10' Dead Last. So awesome!
