Lauren is our oldest and our blondest. She cracks us up!
Well, she is incredibly in love with Matt. She loves Rach & Austin too but she adores Matt.
This morning I got out of the shower and heard Matty open his bedroom door. So I threw my robe on and put him on the potty. I went back to my room to get dressed. I was about halfway done when I hear Lauren getting Matt off the potty. Five minutes does not kill the child but apparently it killed Lauren.
Then I busted her trying to carry him to his room. Carry him!! He is 11, 65 lbs, almost 5 foot tall and she is carrying him down the hall. Luckily she is tall but still she didn’t need to carry him. I have no clue what her reasoning was except that she did it out of love and concern. I couldn’t help but laugh at her for it cuz they looked so silly. I just told her that she needed to let him walk.
The thing is that Matt is really smart. He knows when he can pull the wool over someones eyes and he will manipulate it. If he can get Lauren to do stuff for him he will. So we’ll need to work on that this summer. Silly girl.
Her silliness didn’t end there. Lauren is home today. She let the dogs out. Well our pitbull and our shar-pei are great at running away. She didn’t know just how great they were at it till she tried to let them back in. They knocked her down and hauled butt.
She called me freaking out. She was worried that the dog catcher got them. She was worried they got hit by a car. I told her to go try to look for them over by the school.
So she did and a neighbor drove her around to help her find them. She called me back freaking out because the neighbor told her that the shar-pei was an expensive dog and someone might steal her.
Later in the morning the pitbull finally arrived home. Lauren called and told me that she was all wet. I told her that she likes to go swim in the ditch when it gets hot out. So then she freaked out because the shar-pei wasn’t with her and might have drowned…lol!! I had to inform her that shar-pei’s hate water and more than likely when the pit was swimming the pei went off to an adventure involving dryer activities.
Thankfully, the shar-pei arrived home an hour or so ago. Lauren now knows just how cautious she needs to be when she lets the animals in or out. But I don’t think I’ll ever get her to calm down. And that is really just a charm about her. Plus it can be darn funny!!
