Ellie Wants to Watch Too!

So last night we had a family movie night watching How to Train Your Dragon. As we were getting ready to watch the movie Isabell hops into the rocking chair (which is pretty much "her" chair now) and says, "Ellie wants to watch too! Ellie sit right here by me." So there I sat Ellie. It was so cute though. Isabell was all excited and said her new favorite phrase when she's excited, "Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh, mommy, the dragon movie. I'm so excited!!" Isabell kept her arm around Ellie until Ellie got fussy and started crying. Then Isabell said, "Ellie's done. She crying." Good to know Isabell will stick by her sister through the good and the bad. We all really enjoyed the movie. Isabell kept asking where the dragon went if he wasn't on screen. Something she does will all movies and one of the main characters.

I not super cute

This was a conversation Isabell and I had today in her room while she was playing. And for some background information, Isabell is going to be Superman for Halloween.

Isabell - "Mommy, I cute."
Me - "Yes, Isabell you're cute. You're super cute."
Isabell - "No, I not super cute."
Me - "You're not?"
Isabell - "No, I be Superman, not super cute."

A Difference

I know I have gotten behind on the blogging on all the exciting events happening in my life, but unfortunately this blog really isn't about that either.
The other day I saw this quote that really made me stop and think. Then it helped to remind me what motherhood is all about and what's really important in this life. It helped me regain some perspective that in my tired state I had set on the back burner of my mind.
I wanted to remember this quote and a little bit of how it made me feel and share it with others because I really liked it.

"One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, how big my house was, or what kind of car I drove. But the world may be a little better, because I was important in the life of MY child."–Forest E. Witcraft
