Good Morning my dear friends. It is a sunny morning here, with a slight breeze blowing and temps in the upper 50's right now, but will soon be rising to make the day warmer. Rebecca and I are staying home today. I have a few things I want to do here at home. Such as clean and organize kitchen closet, pack away the winter clothes and blankets, mop kitchen and bathroom floors and wash down the window sills in livingroom. They collect so much dirt because I live on a main intersection here in Philadelphia.
This is cute. I just have to share it with you. You all know the trouble I have getting Rebecca to clean up her messes. Well, my Jim has come up with a great idea. He tried it on Rebecca last night and again this morning before he left for work. And it worked!!!!!! So, here's what he has come up with. Rebecca likes to pretend she is a magician. So, Jim gave her one of my wooden spoons and told her it was a magic spoon and it can make things disappear, lol. This kid believes anything her Daddy says. So, last night she had a few toys on the couch and on her table set we just got her. He then tells her, Well, I don't think you can make these toys magically go into your toybox. She says, Oh yea, I can do magic and make them disappear into my toybox!! He says, Ok Prove it. She tells Jim to close his eyes and don't open them until she tells him too. I pretend I don't see what she's doing, heehee. She waves herwand/woodenspoon and says abra cadabra toys go into toybox (off table). And she quietly takes the toys off table and puts them very gently into toybox. Then she says ok daddy open your eyes. He see's the toys are off the table and smiles and says Wow, Rebecca that was great magic. He then says Can you do it again with the ones on couch? She says sure. Close your eyes Daddy, and again she says abra cadabra toys disappear off couch into toybox, and quietly puts toys in toybox, and says ok daddy open your eyes. Jim again smiling, saying wow, I guess you really are a magician. Rebecca says, Yup, I am the Great Rebecca and I can do magic tricks. So, she says Daddy, do you want to see me make myself disappear? He says, Can you do that trick? She says yup I can. He says ok go for it. She tells him, close your eyes daddy. He closes his eyes and she says, abra cadabra make Rebecca disappear, and she runs out of the room. And she yells open your eyes daddy. He opens his eyes and loudly says, wow Rebecca disappeared. He waited about a minute, and said ok where did she go. She yells again, close your eyes daddy. And she yells abra cadabra Rebecca appear in livingroom and she comes running into livingroom. And says open your eyes daddy. When he opens his eyes, she is standing there eatting a chocolate cupcake, and tells him, I used magic to go into kitchen and get a little snack cause all that magic made me hungry. Jim and I cracked up, cause she looked so serious. I laughed so much, my stomach hurt. But I did have a clean livingroom again, lol.
Yesterday I went to my daughter Emma's for a while. Marissa and Rebecca played outside in the yard, and Daniel was indoors with Emma and I. He grabs this little blue block. Emma says, Watch Daniel Mom. He pretends he is pulling up a cellphone antenna, and puts block to his ear, then pretends he is pushing buttons and looks at me and says, I churping Poppop. Then he says into the block, Hi Poppop, Mommom go shopping. Money, van, keys. Bye bye Poppop. It was so cute watching him do that. And he's not done yet. Emma tells him churp Uncle Mike (Dans brother). He pretends to pull out antenna again press buttons, put to his ear and says, it's busy. Emma tells him well tell Uncle Mike to call you. He puts the block to his mouth and yells, Mike, Call me!!!!!!! I swear that boy is just too smart. He watches everyone with their cellphone and churping phones and he knows exactly what to do with them. So far using my cellphone, he has called his Poppop, and his Mommy's phone.
I went to Walmart yesterday. They had an awesome clearance sale on shorts and shirts for Rebecca and sun dresses. I picked her up a few things, got Jim a pair of pants and a couple shirts for our trip to Pittsburgh on June 1st to 3rd, also found a couple shirts for myself and a bathing suit. I always have a hard time finding a bathing suit that I like and that fits and doesn't cost me an arm and a leg. Well I got a nice black, white and teal print one for 16.84. Usually they get 32.00 and up for a swimsuit that will fit. I still want to find one of those wrap around skirts for it. I don't like my thighs showing, lol.
Well, I have been informed by this shortlittle person here, that it is now time to fix her breakfast. So, I'd better get to it. I hope you all have a wonderful day. I have 20 alerts to read today, and I will. I'll get my housework done early, get to the alerts then I want to post some more recipes. I haven't done that in quite a while. Take care, and enjoy the day.
