I'm an Adult - or something like that

We had a family day today.  We went bowling for CJ's birthday.  What a riot!  The kids had so much fun.  Isabel and CJ were cheering for us all and really having a good time. 

Then we went into the city to buy fabric for my grandpa's birthday gift.  I told the kids we needed tractor fabric so they needed to look for tractors.  What I didn't know at the time was how much tractro stuff we would find.  There were kits for blankets, kits for approns, pillows, toys, etc.  I'm telling you there were tractors everywhere I turned.  CJ and Isabel just started putting it all in my cart.  Everytime I turned my back more stuff would end up in the cart.  Oh, they were so helpful.  Then while we were looking at buttons I handed a pack to Isabel to hold.  When I paid for it we both forgot she was holding the pack of buttons, and left without paying for them.  So we had to go back in the store to pay for them.  CJ freaked out!  He just knew Isabel had stolen them and we were going to be in a lot of trouble.  I had to calm him down and explain that mistakes happen and that we were going back in to fix a mistake. 

Then we went to a Mexican restraunt for diner.  We love Mexican food at our house.  Isabel and CJ informed me that they spoke Spanish.  Then CJ said, "well its not real Spanish it our own language we made up."  Isabel said, "Yeah, its callen Anguish."

During dinner, Isabel got in trouble.  I told here if she didn't stop messing around the next time we go out to dinner I would get a baby sitter and she would stay home.  She looked at me with complete annoyance and said, in her very dramatic tone and gesturing wildly with her hands, "I do NOT need a baby sitter.  I am NOT a baby.  I am five years old, so I'm a 'dult'."

I'm so greatful for all my blessing and a great day with my family.  They make me laugh, keep me on my toes, and bring me great joy.
