So I missed posting something yesterday, but I still did 30 in the month of November. I may need to take a week off – I am out of post ideas!!!
Yesterday, Norah came up to me and said, “Can you give me $3000?”
Today Norah said, “When we move (again not in the plans – she is just dreaming), I really want a house that looks like a palace in the front.”
Norah: Why do you always make me work? You always make me do the work you don’t want to do. It’s like I’m at an orphanage – always working, working, working.
Today Norah called me by my full name, using my maiden name instead of Swinigan. She asked me what her other name was. After explaining that she will have the same name until she gets married, she said, “So, when I get married, I will be Norah Rae Diehl because that is Bennett’s last name and I am going to marry Bennett.”
I know several other moms (Nicole’s is here and I think Nicole B. did it awhile back too) have “interviewed” their kiddos, so I thought I would give it a try. It was just a joke with Lucy – definitely too little.
