Fia Friday: Tomato Eyes

Friday, July 20th, 2012

I’m not sure where this came from, but when Fia sits on the potty, she is eye level with me (as I squat down in front). She always looks right in my eyes, and gets this ethereal look and voice and, says, “Momma, you have tomato eyes.”

At first I didn’t know where it came from, but I think her love of picking the tomatoes from our garden is the root of it. She points to the inner corner of my eye, where the tiny red ball is, and says, “Right there momma. Your tomato eyes.” So now I respond, “Yes, and who else has them?”

“Dada has tomato eyes, Wayne (cat) has tomato eyes, Emmett has tomato eyes. Everyone has tomato eyes.”

After we go through all that, I pray for the poop. But as strange (or gross) as it sounds, I kinda dig our little toilet time conversations. A lot of magical thinking comes from pushing out poop.

Oh, and note her new groovy “transformer” sunglasses. She insisted on that specific pair. We are an equal opportunity sunglass family.

Anyway, here are a few other random pictures I’ve been meaning to post.

Reading at School

I said she was more of an observer these days. She’s content though, so I’m no longer worried.

Ready for lunch! Victoria makes amazing organic meals. From scratch.

Fia Friday: We Miss Baba!

Friday, June 1st, 2012

I’m not talking about her bottle. I’m talking about my Aunt Nancy–known to Fia as Baba Yaga. She came to visit from Louisiana, just outside New Orleans. Fia and I went to her place on the bayou about a year ago and had a blast. It’s when Fia almost killed her bird, Peepers.

Anywho, having her visit us was amazing. She cooked and cleaned, and watched both babies while we slept in for 5 days. Heaven!

In 2007, Aunt Nanc and I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro together. This is before I had babies. I don’t know if we all wore her out more than the mountain did, but she never showed it. She was a trooper. I miss her already. So does Fia. Actually, we all do.

Fia Friday: Taking Time to Smell the Flowers

Friday, May 18th, 2012

 

We went to the Descanso Gardens last weekend. It was so beautiful–like a woodsy Botanical Garden. Fia loved it. We all did. Was so relaxing to just walk around and enjoy.

Then this week, when I dropped her off at school, they had made a little sign pretending there was a “garden shop.” Fia decided she wanted to run the shop. She’d be good at it, especially if her customers like lots of hugs.
