Mommy in Training

My neighbor, Vickie, watches my daughter, Kendall every Tuesday for me while I work in Nolan's classroom. She is the RADDEST neighbor EVER. Well, yesterday when she had Kendall, they took a trip to the thrift store to buy Kendall a toy to keep at Vickie's. Kendall, of course, picked a baby. Well, they decided they needed a baby who would fit in regular baby clothes. So, they bought a diaper bag and baby clothes....and more baby clothes...and diapers...and a bib...and a teddy for the baby...and a bottle for her...and a book... Then Vickie made the baby a blanket. Kendall named her baby Carly.

Tonight, the doorbell rang. It was Vickie. Carly wants to spend the night with Kendall tonight. Kendall was absolutely on CLOUD 9!! Oh my gosh. Kendall sprang from her seat at the table (we had just finished dinner) and immediately changed Carly's diapers, which she got from Carly's diaper bag. Then she changed her clothes a few times. She read her a book and gave her a bottle (she used to nurse her babies, but she hasn't done that for a while :(). Then Carly went potty again, so she had to change her diaper. Then she put on Carly's jammies and kissed her goodnight and went to sleep with her (we are co-sleepers here.) She is the best Little Mommy.

Just in case you are wondering, Vickie HAS children-two grown boys. She is like an adopted Grandma to my kids. Kendall and her are good friends.

How fun is that! My 3 yo DS nurses his dolls with his bellybutton - hahaha, I guess I'm being modest enough.
