Aikido class has not gone too well with Phia lately. I’m not sure she is old enough yet. I end up being frustrated with her after class because she just wants to play and not listen. Then she gets upset because I don’t want to take her to do any of the fun things after class (soft playground/bass pro shop fish tank/christmas train/carousel/ice cream/soda/etc..) and then I basically try to make her feel bad about it on the way home. Maybe I need to stop taking her… or maybe I just need to stop expecting her to act older than she is…
Hockey is so fucking entertaining without even meaning to be.
All these hockey gifs and they didn’t include the best one:
this made me want to watch hockey
Phia often says she wants to be an athlete when she grows up. When I ask her what sport she wants to play she usually says Ice Hockey. We live in south Georgia. Thanks Caillou.
Basically done! Now just to add some fun things underneath!
Pop pop and I got quite a bit done today ( even more than shown but it was dark). The “Tree Fort” is coming along nicely!
Birthday party (for a classmate) at the stables! I was worried it would be hoity-toity, but it was laid-back and tons of fun.
I wish I could have gone! but I was working on the “Tree Fort” as Phia called it.
Phia Writes A Christmas Letter
My dad (aka Pop pop to Phia, aka Shunyata’s Apprentice to Tumblr) is in town to help me build a small, tree based platform/jungle gym for Phia’s 4th birthday (next weekend). I wouldn’t really call it a tree house since I’m not planning on putting a roof or walls on it. It’s really just going to be a platform with rails between two trees and I will add various elements to climb, swing, and play on underneath.
So anyway, Pop pop spent the night in Phia’s bed and she slept in between us for the first time in a long time (Phia said it was “like when I was two!”). She woke up once in the middle of the night, sleeping upside down in the bed, and instead of saying “I’m cold” she said “I’m not warm”, LOL!
I woke up this morning because I felt Phia moving around. But she said, “Go back to sleep” and then proceeded to “sneak” out of bed. I was totally confused, since she normally wants someone to make her breakfast and put the TV on when she wakes up, so when I got up I asked her why she told me to go back to sleep and then snuck out of bed. She said, “Because I wanted to see the Christmas tree lights.” So heart warming.
Christmas tree is up and all decorated! Phia handed Pop pop the lights and said, “Here, this is your job.” Lol! But she made sure we let her help get every last ornament on that tree.
Phia really enjoyed watching the cooks at lunch but I’m not sure they didn’t enjoy it more! She was dancing when a Lady Gaga song came on and they were just smiling and laughing. They brought out a free egg roll for her too.
