OH Halle!!!

Halle has been having major ATT-I-TUDE lately!  Little miss diva!  She has been having meltdowns every day, talking back, not going to bed, not listening.  I spanked her the other day after several attempts at time out failed.  She yelled at me, "that didn't even hurt me."  She puts both hands up in the air and shakes her head at her dad and me when she doesn't agree with something we say.  She often says, "that doesn't even sound like fun to me."  She has been trying to manipulate her daddy and I and often tells daddy that mommy said it's okay or asks mommy if daddy says no.  All in all she is a great girl and has so much love in that heart of hers!  Every night she tells me, "I love you mommy, I never want to have another mommy."  I reassure her that she's stuck with me as her mommy forever!  She has been in this new stage where she and her cousins emmerie and conner play house and have pretend weddings.  I am not so sure that conner is really into this or not.  Halle asks me on a daily basis if she will get married and have a baby someday.  This could have something to do with the fact that almost every one of my close friends are pregnant or just had a baby.  We had a conversation the other night that went something like this.  "mommy I think that I will get married and have a baby girl.  Maybe I will have a baby boy and a baby girl in my tummy together.  Maybe when I'm 35 or 30 or maybe even 17."  I hear a loud, "NO" from Seth, overhearing our conversation.  Yesterday while walking in the Target parking lot Halle asked if she could have a baby when she gets older.  She continued to ask if she would live at home with me with her babies. I said well, you will probably be married and not want to live at home.  She said I am going to live at home forever.  I told her that sounds great with me!  She then got into a whole conversation about what the baby would be to me and if I would be the baby's nana.  I told her I don't want to talk baby talk anymore, lol.  She just needs to enjoy playing with her baby dolls and playing outside and with her friends.  HA!  Does anyone else have their 3 1/2 year old daughter already asking about babies??!
Tonight we had a picnic at the park and kicked the soccer ball around.  We were later getting home than normal so Halle jumped in the shower with me while Seth gave Noah a bath.  I was shaving my legs real quick and Halle said, "what are those green things on your legs."  Me, wishfully thinking she was mistaking the shaving cream for green...."what are you talking about?"  She then points to the veins in my legs.  I am not a tanning bed kind of girl, so I better get these white legs out in the sun soon!  She then asked if she was going to get green lines on her legs (yuck) and I told her I sure hope not, they're ugly.  She then pointed to one spot..."eeww mommy look."  Thank you Halle for pointing out my "green lines."  I love your brutal honesty!
On another subject, next week is Halle's last gymnastics class of this session and I have made the decision that we are not going to attend over the summer.  I need a break!  This Saturday is Halle's last soccer game and my mom and niece are coming up to see it.  I'm very excited to spend some time with my mom and Halle can't wait to see her cousin and Nana.  May is going to be a busy month getting ready for Halle's ballet recital.  She has practice the next two weeks, then pictures, and three mandatory rehearsals in one week before the recital June 3rd.  It's free admission for anyone who wants to attend.  The recital is "classic disney" and will have everything from Minnie Mouse to the Lion King to Mary Poppins.  I think it should be really cute.
If anyone has any tips for the "attitude" please send them my way.  She is almost 4 going on 24....wanting to wear makeup everyday and becoming a little diva.  Of course I don't let her wear make up and she thinks I'm so mean because she can only wear her "lip stuff or cheek stuff or eye shadow stuff" when she plays dress up.  Love my Halle Kate!!
