My Littlest Daredevil
So, Jeremy had the day off today and we decided to take the kids to Pump it Up using a deal I bought on Living Social last month. It was our first time there and it was great. It was not crowded at all and the kids loved it! It has kind of a "club" atmosphere with dim lights and loud music and when Addison first walked in she started shaking her hips and said, "I can shake my booty here!" Mackenzie blew us away by going down the biggest slide over and over. Of course it took her 5x longer than everyone else to get up the "ladder" but all the kids seemed patient. She flew down over and over and most of the time wanted her big brother and sister right by her side. Actually, whenever she went to a new bouncy, she asked one of them to come with her! I absolutely love how well all our kids get along (for now). They definitely have their fights and get on each other's nerves but all three of them really love each other and you can tell!
Toward the end of our jumping adventure Addison complained of a headache and even got her shoes on and sat down. Uh oh, that's never good. Last week she said she was freezing (it's August in Florida) and then she ended up with a low fever and went to bed at 5:30pm! Well, today while Jeremy ran into REI to make a return, she vomited in the car (thankfully I got her a bucket just in time). Poor thing. I have to remember though that when she says she doesn't feel good, she really doesn't.
At bedtime this evening I was reading a book to Mackenzie and Zack and Mackenzie got on the ladder for the bunk bed and was just standing there talking so I told her to get down before she fell. She looked at me and said something that sounded like "Bis Way"...what?...oh, "Bombs Away, is that what you said?" She just said yes, looked at me and then jumped on top of me! That girl's crazy! I told Jeremy today that having Zack prepared me for her because he was (is) a daredevil too and I don't freak out at every little thing anymore!
Oh and the best thing was Mackenzie said her bedtime prayer all by herself tonight in her sweetest two year old voice: "Thank you God for my Daddy, Mommy, Dack-wey (Zachary), Aa-son (Addison), Kenzie, and baby-new baby" (yes, we will have a new baby someday. more on that another day!)
