Easy day for all of us

August 4, 2012

We all took it easy today. I had no choice, my back decided to seize up on me. I was just washing a pan for Alison in the sink – scrubbing pretty hard, when I felt a pinch in my lower back. It just got worse from there. Now, if I can stand up, I have to sort of shuffle around. I hate back problems. And I really hate when they just show up with you’re not doing anything in particular to bring them on.

So. Mae and I watched Despicable Me together. After the movie, she disappeared downstairs somewhere – I think to help her mama make jam. I can hear some murmuring in the kitchen from Alison, which, generally means Mae is getting on her nerves… 🙂

Up and Atom

She woke up excited to go back to ballerina camp. She was also happy to see her mama (Alison worked late last night – so Mae had to settle for story time with her old stand-by – me). She ate her breakfast, brushed her teeth, dressed and grabbed her lunch and backpack and was ready to skate in record time.

The best part of the morning was when Mae told me she was going to talk to the ballerina teaching the class to see if I could join in for a day. She was pretty certain that boys are allowed and would really like it if I could go to class with her and stay.

I think I’m doing okay raising her…
