It's Emily's turn today!  She's been wanting to do this again for weeks.  In fact, she's wanting me to make her her very own Simple Woman's  Daybook, so you'll all need to add another Monday visit to your schedules soon. :-)  As you read, keep in mind she is 4  - I type whatever she dictates to me as I read her the questions.  Hope you enjoy seeing things through the eyes of a little girl.  I 'love' the simplicity of childhood!

For Today - July 5, 2010

Outside my window...I see some trees & a red van.  I see bees flying around a little tiny bush that has little tiny flowers on it.  I think they are collecting honey.  It's so beautiful outside. I see a tree with yellow flowers on it.

I am thinking...about how I would like to be at Disneyland on the Pirates ride. I want to ride it 10 times everyday.

I am thankful for...Mommy.  God gave her to me. I'm thankful for God. I'm thankful for the home we live in.  I'm thankful for Pam.  She sent me stickers & she sends us texts.  I love her too. 

I am remembering...Disneyland.  I always remember it & think about it. 

On my mind...the sparklers that we did last night.  They were pretty.  I loved America's birthday.  Mommy teaches us about America.  It's wonderful to praise God for America & that we are Americans. We saw so many fireworks.  I love fireworks.

I am pondering these words...Mommy.  I always think about Mommy.  She is so sweet.  She loves us so much.  She is letting me answer these questions, & I like it. 

From the learning rooms...I'm learning my hula loop (hula hoop).  Mommy got it for me the other day.  It's hard, but I am learning.  I'm also learning to play my harmonica.  I have to move my mouth back & forth over it. Mommy says I sound so beautiful when I play it.

From the kitchen...I ate breakfast this morning.  There is a cake in there because we made it for America's birthday. 

I am wearing...a Cinderella shirt & shorts.

I am creating...I am making memories of Disneyland.  I have been drawing pictures of all the rides. 

I am play a game with Mommy later.  We are going to play bean bag toss. 

I am reading...Mommy is reading me books everyday.  I only know how to read a few words, so she has to read to me.  I am going to learn how to read all the words soon. 

I am hoping...we go back to Disneyland soon. I also hope we get a new kitty soon.  A woman said she would call us when a new one comes.  We are going to name her Bella, & she will be Tinkerbell's sister. 

I am hearing...Mommy asking me these questions, & my big American flag balloon, because Tinkerbell is playing with the string. 

Around the our family, & I love them.  I love my Mommy.  She takes care of us.  I help her clean & cook.   

One of my favorite things...I will give you clues.  She has dark hair.  She has on a blue shirt.  She has green eyes like me. She loves me.  She is typing. I will spell it so you can guess - M - O - M - M - Y.   

A few plans for the rest of the games with Mommy, color with Mommy, print out some Disney coloring pages, learn more on Mommy's laptop, play with Tinkerbell, watch some cartoons, love & cuddle Mommy, listen to Mommy read me stories, go some places, sing, ride my tricycle,  slide down my slide, & learn new things that Mommy teaches me.  We do lots & lots of stuff together.  Mommy tells me & Elliot that every day is an adventure. God gives us our days, so we should have fun.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...When I helped Mommy make America's birthday cake, she let me hold the mixer all by myself.  I had to be careful.  Mommy told me to keep my hands on the handle thing that you have to hold.  If you get your fingers in those mixer things, it will hurt you really bad. It can break your fingers, so make sure you always hold onto the mixer handle thing. I love learning to cook.  I thank Mommy for letting me learn to cook with her.  The cake for America tasted so good.  We ate it after we did our sparklers.
