Catching Up

Yesterday was something of a recuperation day for Amanda and the kids.  Lily spent a lot of time playing at Katie's house.  Amanda did laundry.  Noah bowled and bowled and bowled.

Katie's house is something of a different world to Lily.  They have a lot more snacks there than we do here.  Also, Katie was playing with makeup and gave Lily some blush and lipstick.  The problem for Lily was that she did not wash off the lipstick very well.  We did not get very mad at her, but we did make it clear that she is not to be wearing makeup.  It's appropriate for ballet recitals and maybe a birthday party, but that's about it.

Lily does not listen to much of the Jonas Brothers at home either.  I guess that they're safe enough.  She sees a lot more TV there than she does here too.  So far it hasn't been too much of a problem, but of course we're keeping our eyes and ears open for things that we may need to correct.  We don't want to keep her in a bubble, but we also want to make sure that we help her process what she gets exposed to.  It's definitely a different world.
