Happy Monday everyone!
So, how was your weekend?
I must admit, I spent most of my Saturday sulking. I'll "woman up" and just tell you, I was sad that I wasn't able to join Mister M and Jayla at Six Flags. I'm no sissy...so I'm just keeping it real, LOL. Had this not been Jayla's first time going to Six Flags, it wouldn't have been such a big deal. But I want to be involved and/or witness all of her childhood FIRSTS. However, I did come to the realization that she spends just about every day with me. And I DO get to go on her school fieldtrips and stuff like that. So I got over it.
I hope I don't sound selfish. I just felt like I was missing out on something fun with her. But it sounds like Jayla and her daddy had a great day of bonding (that's Jayla's new word these days...bonding), lol. Mister M. doesn't get to spend as much one-on-one time with our little girl as I do. So I was happy for them.
When they were about to leave, Jayla said, "Well mom, me and dad are about to go. So you and Trae can have some, uh, momma/dog bonding time!" Well, gee THANKS!!! Somehow, that didn't help how I was feeling :-).
Anyway, it was a nice, quiet day. I took my MIL to the grocery store (2 of 'em), I took a nap (tried to anyway), and I did a little scrapbooking. So the day wasn't a total sulk fest :-).
Here's a fun picture that Mister M purchased at the park.
This is, of course, Mister M. and Jayla. And also his/our nephew, Derron and his 2 daughters, Madesan and Haidyn.
Isn't this a fun picture? They were on the Log Jamboree ride. Not sure how Jayla wound up in the front...where she can get SOAKING wet. Hmm, guess I just answered my own question, huh? :-) Kinda looks like daddy is enjoying it too, doesn't it?
I love pictures like this. Mister M. did a great job getting this shot. Jayla is holding her cousin, Madesan's hand. She and Madesan share a birthday and are exactly one year apart. And Haidyn, the cutie in the yellow, just turned 6 in June.
How bout a picture with some Super Hero's? Aren't they supposed to be saving the planet or something? :-)
Oh, guess what? My LITTLE 6 year old rode this THREE times!!! I couldn't believe it. Everytime we see a roller coaster on TV or something, she always talks about how scary they are. And how she'd NEVER ride one. Yeah, whatever! :-).
When they got home that evening, Daddy came in carrying Jayla. The girl was EXHAUSTED! (so was daddy) He was also carrying a GIANT Bugs Bunny bouncing ball...you know the kind you sit on and hop around? Some lady just gave that to Jayla because she thought she was cute, lol. And daddy was also carrying a cute stuffed killer whale (like the one my nephew is carrying in the picture above, of the girls walking). I hear Jayla won that playing some game.
Anyway, that's about it for Jayla's first trip to Six Flags. Maybe next time mommy will get to tag along :-).
Lastly, I have to show you guys one more thing. At our house, you KNOW that summer break is almost over and school is about to start. How, you ask? Well, it's time for to relax the ole hair. I got mine done last week. And today, I did Jayla's. She HATES when it's time to do her hair. But she simply LOVES it once it's done. Check her out...
She looks like such a big girl! I'm glad to say that it didn't take as long today. I guess she's getting use to the whole process. And due to her being such a good "client", I used the flat iron and the curling iron and gave her a cute "little/big girl" style. She's a mess! All she keeps saying is, "I LOOOVVE it!!"
Alright my friends, that's a wrap for me today. I'm on a scrapbooking roll these days (more on that later).
Oh wait...I just thought of something funny I forgot to tell you. Last night, after Jayla went to bed, Mister M. went into Jayla's room to turn her radio down. He stood at the foot of her bed and just looked at here for a moment. He was thinking that she was pretending to be asleep. Come to find out, he was right :-). She opened her eyes and said, "Dad, I wish I had a Sleep Number bed!" WHAT? Where did THAT come from? LOL Then, she proceeds to grab the old Palm Pilot that I gave her, off her nightstand. She pretends to press in some numbers, saying that she was putting in her Sleep Number code.
Gotta love the kids imagination.
Ya'll have a great week!
