Princess Diana Exhibit

Last weekend, mom and I took Kylie to the GA Aquarium and the Princess Diana Exhibit in Atlanta. Believe it or not, the Princess Diana exhibit made more of an impression! She cannot stop talking about the princess clothes. While we were looking at Princess Di's wedding dress, she asked, "Is that MY wedding dress?" On Monday, she laid out all of Mom's jewelry and shoes and said, "'s the Princess Diana exhibit!" She loved seeing the "real" princess stuff, even though we waited in line for 2 hours to get in.

Father's Day

I've been trying to explain Father's Day to Kylie for a week. Yesterday, on Father's Day, I told her it was finally here! She got very upset that it wasn't "Kylie Day." She told Paul that he'd better share his day. "It's not Mommy's Day or Kylie's Day. It's Daddy's Day. You'd better share it, or I'm gonna have a BAD attitude! It's going to be a BAD day if you don't share it!" This went on for quite some time. What a pleasant Father's Day for Paul! :)

Paul got a new grill, a smoker cookbook, a shirt, a BBQ mop and a hamburger press for Father's Day. We put the grill, BBQ mop and cookbook to a test last night when Paul had to cook his own Father's Day dinner....smoked brisket. Pretty good!


We went to a friend's for a playgroup the other day. She had a great backyard with a slip n slide, kiddie pool, etc. Kylie played for about an hour, then ran up to me and said, "I've had a great time...but I'm ready to go now."

I haven't updated in here are a few tidbits.

Paul, Kylie and I were all wearing red shirts for Memorial Day. Kylie said, "You have on a red shirt. I have on a red shirt. Daddy has on a red shirt. We are so fashionable!"

Paul and I were talking about the military "lifestyle" and how people had to move alot. Kylie piped up from th backseat, "Well, I choose the princess lifestyle."

Kylie just got her first pair of ballet slippers. She is entranced by them. She wears them around the house and puts on impromptu performances of twirling and tiptoeing. She's really looking forward to her Snow White ballet camp in July!

Kylie has suddenly become a little fish in the water! She is swimming from halfway across the pool to the wall. One day she was clinging to me and the next day she was swimming! She claims that she is now a mermaid.

Kylie has now decided the showering by herself is the way to go. I went to check on her in the shower and as soon as she saw me she said, "NOOOOOOO!!!! It's still WARM!" When I finally got her out of the shower, she told me that she was a "Super Reader" and needed to "run around nekkid." She also asked me to put some "conditioning" on her hair. She then decided, "I changed my mind. I'm a princess." When I finally convinced her to get dressed (by acting like her pajamas were a "royal animal tapestry"), she asked, "Well, do I look beautiful?" She's quite full of herself these days!

Potty Trainin' and Entertainin'

Today, I was driving Kylie home from playgroup so we could eat lunch. She said, "I don't want to go home. I want to go to McDonald's." I told her that we didn't have any money to go to McDonald's. She said, "Well, I have a credit card!"

Kylie is now fully potty trained (but still in diapers at night)! I am thrilled! She refers to herself now as a "Super Pooper." Once she even jumped off the potty and said, "I am potty trainin' and entertainin'!" She loves to rhyme!
