My parents took their grandchildren to see the Magic on Ice! Nora was sooo excited all week. She told everyone she was going to Disney World. I don't think she knew any different, except she really wanted to see the castle. I didn't go, so of course I don't have my pictures, but while we were waiting for the magic carpet to come pick her up, I took some pictures. Looking at these pics, she looks sooo grown up. It is a little sad. Her and I have actual conversations these days. She remembers things that happened a week ago. She understands her emotions. It is all very weird. While we were sitting on the potty the other day, and I was waiting, and waiting, and waiting for something to happen, she could tell I was frustrated. She said, "Mommy, are you sad?" I told her, that we had to leave, and she needed to either "poop or get off the pot, literally." She said, "Will that make you happy mommy?" How do I stay sad, after the sweetest little voice says something like that. The only way I can describe it, is the more stressful and frustrating being a parent is, the more rewarding, and gratifying it is.
