What to muse about today?

Thunder! And Flowers!

We ended up losing the fish today. Sigh.  It’s an empty pond.  With frogs, and one crayfish.  I’ll finish treatment and give the pond place a call.  See what they suggest us doing – emptying the pond and refilling, doing more than two weeks treatment.  Maybe we’ll wait a bit before getting more, but I would like to get more.  I really like the fish.

In other happy news, Teagan came home with a bunch of art.  This is her drawing a thunderstorm, raining on her flower.  I didn’t get to ask if they were her sunflowers or not.  She sent me out to water them tonight while she finished eating dinner.

She did a bit of art for everyone!  Mama, dada.  Even Ashlin and the cat.  Not sure where she got the name “Gagoo,” maybe the teacher misunderstood Teagan’s pronunciation of “Clio”.

She’s asked for watercolors.  I think she may be mature enough to be able to paint a nice picture and not get paint everywhere.  They may just be one of her rewards for being good, and quiet, and not falling in the toilet.

For Dada

For Mama

For Ashlin and the cat

      LOL!! It is. One of her two big excuses for having an accident. The other is that she missed. Sigh.

        I like how she thinks!!

          Yeah. It’s awesome. Girl waits too long before she dashes to the bathroom. We thought we had the accidents under control – it’s been a few months since the last – but I guess not. She doesn’t seem able to process more than one or two instructions – sit down, be quiet – at a time, the third – potty! – seems to fall out of her brain!

    LOL….love the pictures. I remember those. In fact, may still have them. :-) The thunderstorm looks accurate or at least the way I see them some time. :-) The waterpaints for being good is an excellent idea ” for being good, and quiet, and not falling in the toilet.” HA HA

    • lisasff says:

      They’re awesome. I just decided that I should make a book of her art. I have a lot of it scanned already… It’s beginning to get good!

      And yeah, painting will help her not fall in the toilet! LOL!
