Everybody loves Jayla!

Hello everyone.

I won't take up much of your time today. But I just had to post this before I forgot...I feel a scrapbook page coming soon :-).

Yesterday, Jayla and I ran a few errands. One of which was to Michaels. I mean, I had a 50% off coupon so I kinda HAD to go, right? Anyway, I spent a whopping $6! How come I can never find what I really want when I have THAT kind of coupon in hand?

Well, while we were standing in line, Jayla looks up at me and says, "Hey mom, guess what? My belly is hungry for some lunch!" I laughed and asked her what her belly wanted. She says, "Well, my belly really wants some Moe's!" Ok, now, I really wasn't in the mood for Moe's, but she HAS been asking for it for a while...even before school got out. So I tell her to let me think about it. There were about 4 people ahead of us in line, so I was able to stall a little. After we checked out, she looks up at me and says, "Well mom? Whatcha think? You feel like going, you know where? lol
ARGH...I tell her ok and we head across the parking lot to Moe's. We order our food, find a place to sit down and she says, "Hey mom, you know what? You and...whoever Moe is, sure make some good quesadillas!" LOL (note: had I known she liked mine so much, I could've saved myself $12 and some change!)

Then this morning, Jayla had a dentist appt. When we went a couple weeks ago, they found a small cavity in one of her molars. Even though she'll probably lose that tooth in about 5 - 6 years, they thought it best to go ahead and do a filling. Well, I've never heard of a 6 year old getting a filling. So needless to say, I was a little nervous. Being that I've had my share of "tooth issues", I was scared FOR her. Anyway, she and I talked about it a bit, short of me telling her she'd have to get a shot in her little gums.
Jayla loves to read and has several books. So she comes across this book. After "reading" it, she asks me a few questions about her upcoming visit but doesn't seem to be sweating it. SO, back to today. On our way to the dentist, I tell Jayla that she needs to make sure she relaxes and listens to what they tell her to do. And that IF they accidentally hurt her a little bit, for her to remember that they are only trying to help her and keep her pretty teeth healthy. And she says, "No problem mom! And don't worry, I can go back by myself and you can wait for me." We get to the office around 8:55 for her 9am appt. At 8:58, they call her back. Around 5 after 9 the dentist walks by the glass lobby door and gives me the thumbs up. She then tells me that they have already given Jayla "the SHOT" and that she did great. At 9:20, they bring Jayla out to me and tell me that she's all done and she did GREAT! I couldn't believe it only took 20 minutes! The dentist tells me that Jayla needs to teach some adults how to behave when THEY get a filling :-). Jayla looks at me and says, "Yeah mom! You have to be a big girl like me when you come back on Thursday for your filling!" WHATEVER!! :-)

Lastly, this evening when Mister M. got home, he took a little nap. He was so tired from being bored to death in day 2 of a week long, work related class. When he wakes up, he goes to his desk in the playroom. Jayla quickly gets up and says, "Hey dad, I have a teensy weensy question." Now he's a little nervous, lol. She proceeds to ask him this..."Dad, is Wendy the Burger Kings daughter?" LOL He laughs and tells her "no", but asks where she came up with THAT question. She says, "I dunno, I just thinked of it."
I am hearing this from my studio and I just couldn't help but LOL. She's so funny. I just love that little girl.

Oh well, that's all I have for today. I'll let ya'll know if I'm a big girl or a big sissy when I have my turn at the dentist in a couple days :-). Toodles!!

I love stories about thinking kids! And, boy, is Jayla ever a thinker!! I love how she processes things; it makes for great material for your blog and chuckle-some reading for us!!

BTW, I don't blame Mr. M for needing a nap .... those classes are harder than real work!!

first of all I just LOVE Moe's but I always get the same thing "Billy Barou"...so I guess I'm not so sure how much I love the place!!!

Secondly are you really going for a filling yourself on Thursday! LOL

Lastly Jayla's question about Wendys daughter was hilarious!! Out of the mouth of Babes!

I love Jayla! I can't wait to meet her. I wonder if she's going to want Moe's when we go out. I think I love Moe's and I've only been there once.
