Little Miss Sassy Pants

Miss Sassy Pants
You may have noticed my lack of blogging in the past few months.  A combination of going to the gym daily, a crazy lesson schedule, kids and all of their myriad activities, winter and the subsequent SAD issues and just a basic loss of interest in my blog have all kept me from getting on and writing (um, or commenting).  One of the drawbacks is that I have really missed writing down some of the things the kids do and say, and now I can't remember half of them.

I took this picture a couple months ago because Sophia is in love with a little boy (the same one who was in the play with Chloe, in case you're wondering).  She sees him a lot.  She sees him at church, his mom watches her on Tuesdays and I watch him on Wednesdays, their dads work together,  and our families get together a fair amount outside of all that to boot.  They even had some serious wedding plans going on one day (as in, "after I get back from my mission I will marry you, Sophia)!

On this particular day, she was going over to Oliver's house and she wanted to make sure that she looked super cute and she also wanted to match (matching clothing appropriately is something I've been working on with her lately).  This pink and black ensemble is what she came up with all by herself, and I have to admit, it is TRES stylish, don't you think?

Unfortunately, the wedding might be off now.  A couple weeks ago when I was driving the two of them to school I overheard the following conversation:

Sophia: "I don't want to marry you anymore."

Oliver: "You DON'T?  Who are you going to marry then????"

Sophia:  "I don't want to talk about it."

I asked her about it later, and she informed me that she doesn't want to marry anybody because she doesn't want to kiss a boy and because she doesn't want to have to change her name (she's four: how does she even know about this?).

Phewsh.  All the marriage talk was making me a little nervous anyway....

  14. I had a birthday party today for both of my boys, and Aidan invited two girls and one boy. One of the girls, Madelyn, hugged him three times during the hour and a half. I think they both have a little crush on each other. Sigh.

  15. She is so adorable, in every way (and a snappy dresser!). But she can take it from me—she doesn't have to change her name! Go, Sophia!
