What the daughter does, the mother did. ~Jewish Proverb



That is probably true of Payson! Although, I probably gave my parents a harder time than she gives me. But yesterday was so much fun!! Brennan mentioned this place, Jump On It, to me a long time ago and I looked them up online the other day and saw that on Thursday's from 10-11 am they have a Mommy and Me jump time for just $3. So yesterday I left Jack with my mom and Payson and I had some one on one time. Pretty much, I spent an hour sweating and chasing Payson around this warehouse full of trampolines and blow up slides and stuff. But we laughed a lot! Payson had such a good time. It was a great day.

Although, on our way to pick up Jack I got a flat tire. Argh. My Daddy saved me. He postponed his business lunch and came to rescue us. (Yes, I do not know how to change a tire. I am a helpless maiden in need of rescuing when it comes to cars).

Anyway, Dad changed my tire, we picked up Jack who fell asleep in the car on the way home, and then Payson and I shared an ice cream cone on the drive home. Then she snuggled up to me on the couch and we watched Meet the Robinson's, which Payson had borrowed from Grandma, and Payson fell asleep. She's no longer taking naps, so this was a pleasant surprise!!

She is at that magical age where everything she does and says is hilarious! And everything she says and does drives me crazy! She's an angel and a demon wrapped into one, but I couldn't live without her! I'm savoring every sweet moment like yesterday knowing that at some point it will get a lot harder with her. I'm crossing my fingers that we can just skip that, "I hate you" teenage stage. But no matter what happens, she'll always be my baby, the one who made me a mother and gave me a lesson in love that I'll never forget!

AWWWW So cute! I can't wait for stuff like that with Brooklyn and my other future kids. I think you'll be such a great mom that Payson will never even think the words "I hate you", but I completely understand that fear. By the way, I took a mechanics class in highschool and still don't really know how to change a tire...maybe I could figure it out....haha :P

I'm so sorry she isn't napping anymore. But that is seriously the cutest "ode" to a daughter ever.
