Preschool Pissing Contest

Oh, today was a great day friends! We woke up and The Hubs surprised me by taking us out to breakfast. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and we went to one of my favorite restaurants. So this was a wonderful surprise.
Then, even better, I convinced Hubby to take the kids for a little walk right after we ordered which made our meal so much more pleasant. They came back from their walk just as the food arrived.

Then after breakfast we took the kids to the park where I was picked up by another mom. Yes, she was drawn in by my mommy pheremones and she couldn't resist slipping me her number and begging to get a spot on O's playdate card. LOL!!

But the most hilarious thing that happened involved Jade. We were hanging around the monkey bars and I was explaining to Jade that you have to develop a lot of arm strength to go from just hanging on the bars, to swinging across the bars. She listened intently and then decided to give it a try. She was hanging on the first bar and you could see her willing one of her hands to move to the next bar, but she just couldn't bring herself to let go and try to walk across the bars.


While Jade was hanging there another little girl walked over, jumped on the bars and easily swung across. You can imagine that Jade was hot! The girl heard me explaining about the whole 'need a lot of arm strength' thing, so she said..."You also need a lot of arm strength to do this!" And she jumps off the monkey bars and does a semi-cartwheel. Well, Jade was just too put out! She jumped off the monkey bars and did a perfect cartwheel and ended with a flourish. She said, "I have a lot of arm strength and I can do a cartwheel the right way." The other little girl asks Jade, "How old are you?" Jade says with indignation, "I'm four!". The other girl says, "Well, I'm five!" And trounced away!!!
LOL!!!! Jade was not happy, but she felt like she had no comeback. I guess when you are a preschooler, age trumps all!!!
