WSU Block Party

Audrey, Jayne and I spent the morning at the WSU Block Party. We had so much fun. The first booth we saw had sidewalk chalk. That was a real hit for Audrey. She loved it!

We made our way to the WSU Online booth where we sat in the shade and ate Otter Pops. I think that was Jayne's favorite part. She's pretty serious about her Otter Pop-eating.

One our way back we ran into our Army recruiter friend, Matt who brought a climbing wall. I tried it, and it was a fun first for me. I have to admit that the only reason I strapped on the harness was because of Audrey. She kept telling me I had to do it, and then she grabbed my leg and walked me over.

We always have to stop for dogs...

All of the excitement really wore out Jayne. She was even willing to sleep sitting up. Sweet girl!

Cell Phone

This morning I was ready to leave for work and I heard little noises coming from Audrey's room. I decided that it would be worth being a few minutes later to work if I could see my little girl and give her a hug and a kiss. So I opened her door to greet her. She was sitting on the floor, using her bed as a backrest. She had an old (battery-less) cell phone up to her ear. She refused to make eye contact with me, and instead focused on her phone conversation. She stared at the floor and repeated "uh huh....uh huh".

Finally I decided I couldn't wait any longer. I got down on the floor on my hands and knees and said, "Audrey, I'm sorry to interrupt your conversation. But I'm leaving for work and I'd like a hug and kiss from you."

Audrey slowly got up from the floor, never removing the phone from her ear and still never making eye contact. She put one arm around me and allowed me to give her a hug. Then she sat down and resumed focus on her phone call.

I laughed this morning, but wonder what the teen years will be like with this little girl.
