Wow. That's kind of weird to say... step-mom. But seriously, I love being one. The best way I can describe it is how my mom describes being a grandma. It's a special bond and love that you can't describe. You would be there for them in a heartbeat, you miss them like crazy when they are gone, you love seeing/talking/playing with them, but at the end of the
day weekend, they have to go home. Don't get me wrong, I'm sad when she has to go home and would love for her to be here all the time (just like a grandparent) but I do have two other kiddos that are I'm responsible for all the time, so it's nice to enjoy our time with Bella, when she is here! It doesn't help that she is gorgeous, funny, full of life, full of funny sayings, and loves her Bert! (me)
She also loves playing with Bailey and Bailey actually loves her back! (Bailey's not the biggest fan of the other two babes) She's such a good helper too. She always wants to help feed Carly. She shares toys really well with Lidia, and definitely keeps her entertained. This weekend we played a lot of Wii. She's at the age where she wants to play so "we let her" aka when I bowl, she actually thinks that she is bowling and winning! We also played Just Dance and the girls loved showing off their dance moves all weekend!
She's a daddy's girl. If he's not in the room, she's always asking, "Where'd daddy go?" They are pretty much obsessed with each other! This weekend Matt said, "I'm gonna go outside to take the trash out." Bella said, "Who, her?" And pointed at me! HA! I'm assuming she wanted me to kick rocks and be alone with her dad!
Another funny thing she said this weekend was, Matt asked her if she had to go potty after she woke up from her nap on Saturday afternoon.
She said, "No... I already went potty!" (Like she was proud of herself)
Matt said, "Did you pee the bed Bella?"
She said, "Yep! I peed in YOUR bed"
Pointing at me and laughing... hard.
Is this a theme? Is she starting to hate her "Bert"???
