I think my favorite part about this picture is how decieving it is. You see it looks like i actually bathe my children. In general - its vances job. At first after Melia was born i wasn't physically able to do it so of course it fell to him but then it became a fun thing he could do with her that was kind of daddy time without having to do anything spectacular. So it has continued on that he generally bathes the kids - except Melia tends to request i wash her hair now because daddy really doesnt know how to work with long hair very well, and then i definately have to brush it for her afterward.
Now this next picture is a lovely example of the things that kids love and parents dont understand but enjoy the happiness. These are BOTH Kyan's sippy cups but Melia wanted to use his so she could have the same as he did and they both thought it was hilarious! They sat and looked in the mirror and laughed at eachother for a good 15 min. I therefore was able to unload the dishwasher in happiness and confusion =)
Now for those not priviliged to witness the amazing spice girl performance on friday - you missed out! We were amazing! Obviously i was too excited to think about taking pictures so i dont have ANY but vance said marlan took some so hopefully i can get my hands on some. I did however manage to tape both of our songs as well as the song vance and i did so some night we will have to go to someones house with a largeish tv and laugh histarically(no idea how to spell that actually?). Oh and since i am a whiney type i submitted my appeal for a dance to marlan as the new activities coordinator, please please please marlan (me on my knees begging) and she said that was a great idea and she could totally do it in may since she didn't have something lined up for it yet!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! Yes i am in dance withdrawl. Doing my best not to twitch out just thinking about how long it has been!! She is also planning a variety show for everyone to showcase their amazingness or fabulousness (whichever your forte - he he yes i know it was a bad music joke but i thought it was funny). SO she said everyone needs to start planning your amazing acts now whether it be dancing your tail off, telling jokes or stories or whatever it is that you do. I am loving her awesome ideas! Oh yes and in light of my remarkable modesty i have to tell you that i was voted by a group of five, no less,(not the judges of course because they dont get to vote) as the brooks ward american idol! i am expecting a shirt any day now. =) Oh dont get confused now - i cant sing worth a dime but apparently i dance weird enough to take the focus off my singing and shake my way to the top! IM FAMOUS!! Dont expect any forthcoming CD's though because i really cant sing =)
