When Sarah was four, she loved to eat wraps. When making her lunch for pre-school or daycare, she always wanted a wrap and the great thing is she would eat the whole thing. Then one day, she announced, "I don't like wraps anymore." Just like that. Her relationship with the wrap was over. Finished. And I was on the hunt for something else to send for lunches. Lately she has started eating wraps again. I often have to remind myself, phases and stages, phases and stages.
Phases and stages can also be applied to Jack and Sarah's on again, off again relationship with water parks. In 2010 both kids loved them. Any water park, any time, bathing suits or not we were going into a water park and getting very wet.
Summer 2010. Wet. Wet. Wet.
Last summer, not as much. It was the year of the no splash.
Summer 2011. Keeping our distance.
If Saturday was any indication, Jack and Sarah are warming up to water parks again. Although they didn't get very wet, they did enjoy themselves as we celebrated the third birthday of one Lilahbility.
After running around a playground and water park for two hours, what could be better than a rainbow cupcake? Not much.
Ms. Lilahbility's mom. You had me at brownie. I think Winnie the Pooh said it best, "What could be more important than a little something to eat?"
