The Land of Princess Sydney

Sydney brought home her very first kindergarten journal on Friday. It was for the month of September. For those of you unfamiliar with the awesomeness of the kindergarten journal, it's exactly what it sounds like. Everyday the kids draw a picture and write in their journal about things they want to talk about. Sydney's consisted of A LOT of princesses and mermaids and ballerinas, but here are my three favorites:

Here we have Sydney's choice in dogs. She's desperate for a dog and wants either a Boston Terrier (compliments of daddy's opinion) or a teacup poodle (compliments of the neighbor down the street with brand new puppy the size of my hand.) Notice the hot pink fluffiness of the poodle. I'm sure in her mind, the teacup poodle of her dreams would have naturally hot pink fur.

What else is there to say? This one just warms my little bookwormed nerdy heart.

Finally, if you haven't guessed, this is a family portrait. I'll give you one guess which one Sydney is... I know it's very difficult considering the one on the right is wearing hotpink shoes and a purple princess skirt. Jon's likeness is on the left and side and yes people, that's me in the middle. Now, I'm sure I could psychoanalyze why exactly I look like a combination of Morticia Adams and a Dementor, the guardians of Azkaban prison, but I'd rather just revel in how skinny Sydney drew me. I have definitely conceded, however, that maybe I do wear too much black. (Oh yes, and for those of you wondering where the heck Vivie is, Sydney told me that this is when Vivie was a "baby" baby and she is holding her in her arms in a green blanket. )

I can't wait for October's journal.

You should really start charging us for this awesomeness. I am laughing so hard right now at that family portrait. You gotta love Sydney, remembering fondly when Vivie couldn't walk and Sydney had complete control...ahhh the good ole days.
