I woke up in the middle of the night to Cressey asking me over the monitor, "Mama, what are the words to the Frozen song?"
Cressey to Spiffer: "I can run as fast as a shark. I can run faster than an old lady!"
We play Skittle in the car where you race to call out a color of a car that is a Skittle color. It gets pretty competitive. Out of nowhere, Cressey screamed, "Skittle green! BURN!!!" We have laughed so hard about it and will still call out Burnnnn!
In a store, I called out to Cressey, "Hey, sis!" She said, "You can call me Cressey if you want."
After school, Cress got in the car and said, "I'm tired of this virus. It's so hard."
Helen Grace is really into music. She told me on the way to school one morning that two songs of her childhood that stand out are "Wagon Wheel" by Darius Rucker and "Build Me Up Buttercup" by the Foundations.
I told Cressey that we were going to eat dinner, take a bath, and then get in bed quickly. She said, "That's not a very good plan."
Being the sensitive soul she is, Cressey can sometimes get her feelings hurt when you give her direction or correct something she's doing, even if it's said nicely. HG was alongside one day when I corrected Cressey, and I heard her comforting Cress by saying, "Cressey, Mama's not fussing at you; it's Mama and Daddy's job to teach us things." It's nice to hear her repeat things that we've tried to instill over the years.
SAA has some MASSIVE speed bumps in their front drive, and when I was pregnant, I'd always laugh and say that I was trying hard not to have Cressey as we drove over them. At least once every week or two, HG recalls that and we laugh as we drive into school.
Cressey has a new catch phrase, "What the HEEEECK?" Ugh.
