Couple fun things either during our tea parties of late or about the tea parties:
Couple days ago, Sofi, Kaisa and I were wrapping up our food and Sofi was trying to ask about having a popsicle for dessert without actually saying the word "popsicle", just in case I didn't want her to have one, the idea wouldn't be lodged in Kaisa's head. With Kaisa, we all know, when something gets parked in her head, it's there to stay and none of us will have a moment of peace until either that request is satisfied or something better comes along. Sofi started out trying to spell the word and was getting stuck, so I decided to help her out a little and spell it for her, "you mean, p-o-p-s-i-c-l-e?" Kaisa says, without even looking up from whatever she had in her hand, "I want a popsicle too!" Sofi's and my jaws dropped and we looked at each other in utter disbelief, with our eyebrows about at our hairlines, as Kaisa swung a sidelong glance at us with a smirk on her face. It was clearly just coincidence that she figured out what it spelled because we tested it out yesterday and she had no clue what we were talking about!
Yesterday, Sofia and Greta were both home from school. Tuesday evening, at 8pm, we got a call from the clinic we brought Sofi to last Friday for a strep culture telling us her culture finally finished and was positive for strep. Greta, despite the fact she was "fine" all morning and getting ready for school, after saying a couple times that she's "freezing", I checked her temp and she was 101.7...still insisting she felt just fine!!! So, as lunchtime was approaching, I asked the girls if they were ready for the lunchtime tea party. Sofi grumpily said, "NO! I don't want a tea party!" I kinda looked at her funny cause the day before, she kept telling me, "This is the best tea party ever!" and, "Mom, how do you do such good tea parties? This one is just the best one I've ever been to. It's so pretty and fun.." so on. As I was looking at her, Greta sneeringly said, "Yeah!! And yesterday all she did was brag about the tea party you guys had. She told me that it was the best tea party ever!" Sofi just grouchingly said, "Well, I don't want her to be here for it! I want to have a tea party again without her!!!" We did have a very enjoyable tea party again though, despite the fact she was there!!! :)
