Today we had scrambled eggs, her favorite! She says, " Thanks mom, I love scrambled eggs, they are my favorite in the world." After I hand her her plate: " My scrambled eggs are too hot, it breaks my heart". While eating with everyone, " I have to go poop on the toilet, I be right back" moments later... "I am dooooone" I go to help her out and she asks," what is that smell?" my response, "well... Iz , its your poop." Iz, "EWW that smells gross!!" of course she had to run out to announce she smelled poop and its gross.!!! .....what do you do?
She asks several times a day: Shall I go brush my teeth? my reply: sure Iz. with that I get a big "THANKS MOM," while she runs to the bathroom to get started.
Today almost nap time, she was begging to watch a show instead. After asking me why she couldn't several times, I pulled the famous, "Because I am the mom and I am in charge". A few minutes later while eating her sandwich she said, " I will be the mom!" "Really?" I say. She proceeds, "You have to listen to me crazy little girl" and taps my nose like I am a child. "OK" I say, she then tells me "you have to go take a nap, while I watch a show!"
Tonight, I put her to bed and start to tell a made up bedtime story about two princesses, Abigail and Isabelle. They had many beautiful horses, dogs, and cats. (their favorite animals, so I thought). Isabelle pops up with clasped hands and asks "and cows?"..... me: what? ....... uummm of course, cows??
But my favorite of the day (yes all of this in one fantastic day). While climbing on the back of the couch she noticed the new Oquirrh Mountain Temple being built out our back window. With all the excitement in the world she screams, " Mom, the Temple!! I want to go, can we go? That's Jesus' house, I want to see Jesus again!!!! He is this taller, taller, tall!" (standing on the arm of the couch with her arms stretched up as high as they can go!)
If you want to know what pure joy is, just watch her! While playing with playdoh and making a huge mess (which makes Abbie crazy) Abbie asks, " What's wrong with you Iz?" Isabelle's reply, "nothing Abbie I am not sad, I am happy see", with a big cheesy grin on her face! Abbie grinning, "I know Iz, you are always happy!"
