Well we had another one of those "firsts" again today with my sweet little Lacey BUG! This is how the conversation went when I picked her up from Junior High today:
Lace: I guess that there is a dance on Friday
Lace: Taylor asked me at lunch if I'd go with him...
Me: EVEN BIGGER GULP..What did you tell him?
Lace: Well..I didn't want to hurt his feelings in front of everybody so I said...maybe
Me: That was thoughtful of you(trying to hide my panic attack)
Lace: Later after lunch I felt the spirit tell me that it wasn't a good idea
so..what do YOU think Mom...can I go to the dance on Friday?
Me: ...well...what does the strength for youth guide say?? Not till your 14 I think
..possibly even 16 :-)
Lace: I knew it...& I'm fine not going & I've already decided to tell Taylor tomorrow.
The story was even better watching Ian's face as she told him at dinner.
He shot a few glances at me..in utter disbelief that he was having "this"
conversation with her!:-)
Man I know she is growing up but...it's crazy how fast things just sneak up on you.
I know Taylor has had a crush on Lace for a while (they went to grade school together) so I wasn't surprised..He's a cute boy & has been a good friend to her. I'm so proud of her decision making & her acceptance of the strength for youth guidelines. I'm so proud of her for recognizing the spirit. And listening to the promptings & understanding that her "maybe" should of been a "no thank you".
Anyway just wanted to brag on what a good girl she is. I'm so Proud of her & pray
she continues to let the spirit guide her in her life.

And this to shall pass...right? My poor babies. I feel so bad for them both. They are breaking their molars & I seriously am exhausted. Kade tries to eat but anything he chews on is just so painful & ends up screaming. So he is drooling buckets & in tears because he's hungry. Chloe has figured it's not even worth trying so she is refusing everything. I've found that yogurts & apple sauce are the only things that don't bring tears. I also tried chicken noodle soup today & that went well.
The downside to these foods is I have to sit & feed them. Spoon feeding two babies is time consuming but the pay off is...I don't have to clean the floor or the chairs or the walls :-) & by me feeding them I know exactly what made it in their mouths verses them "trying" to feed themselves & needing a bath after every meal. AHHHHHH!
I am so happy that these teething days will soon be behind us. THANK GOODNESS for
If it wasn't for Orajel & Motrin I'm pretty sure you would find me curled up in the fetal position sucking my thumb!!
