A bad Target trip, a date, and Hoosiers

I'd like to apologize to anyone who encountered us in Target today... My girls were determined to make that the worst Target trip ever for me. The little one fussed and pouted because her sister wouldn't let her get the same swim suit she was getting. I might have had a 'discussion' with them that could have been overheard by others. Again, sorry if we took away from your Target shopping experience today. We won't be going to a store as a group again for awhile.

I've been encouraging Mike to spend more one on one time with Katie, our oldest. He asked her to go on a date with him tonight. HE suggested that they go to dinner and walk around the mall so you can imagine that she was quite happy to go! She came home with a couple of new things, they went to the pet store and held puppies, and enjoyed some good father - daughter shopping. They did not provide me with pictures except for a puppy they wanted to bring home...

So, that left me on a date with the fussing, pouting sister... she was a new kid when it came down to staying home or getting a new attitude!

We went to dinner at her favorite place, Pei Wei, then checked the other Target for a different swim suit for her and did some other running around. She is such a sweet girl (when she isn't pouting). We had a good time.

We're all back home and having family movie night, Mike choose so we are watching "Hoosiers"

Speaking of trouble with kids... A blog I read led me to the Fishful Thinking web site. I was interested in it because the whole idea behind it is 'Optimism and positive thinking' in our kids. I was interested in their information because the 'pouty' girl tends to be a little pessimistic and I would love to be able to keep that from being a lifelong issue. They are still looking for mom ambassadors to be part of their influencing network. Let me know if you want info on signing up.



edited to note that the one who really wanted to watch the movie with Dad didn't make it half way through...

I love the pic of big girl and elvis. Precious. I asked little girl why she needed a coat so close to summer. I guess I just don't understand Lubbock weather.

I was going to type something else, but I've already forgotten it.

If you don't let your girls grow up to be big pessimists, how are they going to carry on the tradition of crazy in our family? Better start teaching them denial right now so they can carry on our legacy...

What sweet memories that you and Mike could make with your girls. Pouting and all. (o:
