just us girls
just us girls!!!!! it has been so much fun this weekend. yesterday jenna and i went to see chicken little (very cute) while tatum had her nap and my neighbor deanna checked in on her. jenna and i never get to spend one on one time together and i have guilty feelings about that. the time alone was much needed for the both of us. i could totally see a change in her spirit. she really does need her mommy. :)
we went to old navy and spent 79ish dollars and got 6 shirts and two pair of bermuda shorts for jenn, 6 shirts for T and two shirts, a skirt, and a dress for tates. (shirts all long sleeved) what a bargain huh? jenna has a million articles of clothing and nothing fits her. she has officially moved from a 4/5 to a 6/7 and a size 13 shoe. poor thing, she is wearing the exact same size everything as her 6 year old bro. she'll be tall like her mommy, lucky girl.
the house was quiet today. jenna played next door and tatum took a nice long nap and while i didn't get much done. it was sure nice to not have anyone needing something from me for those few precious hours. oh and by the way jeff and tristan went to st. george for two days thats why it's just us.
it was great to be with these beautiful girls, girls that i grew in my body, something that only a mother could understand. i had a lot of time to look at their mannerisms, their bodies and how much they've grown, listen to their sweet voices and watch them interact. for a moment i actually looked at myself a little different than i usually do. my strech marks weren't so ugly and it didn't feel so bad to be fat. my body was beautiful for just a moment as i remembered that those beautiful girls are a major contributor to the way i look today. i love my girls. i feel sad to think of them as big but feel happiness for the day that they feel the way (about their children) i do today. it was just so great. it was a happy day.
