We've been so excited to have Tricia watching the kids while Mom's at work during the week. She's been with us for 3 weeks total now and the kids (and mom) couldn't be happier. Everyday Sofia asks me "Is Tricia coming today?". If it happens to be Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, I'm left with a very disappointed 4 year old. Here is why:
Tricia is just a lot of fun. I just took this picture because all the kids love to be glued to her. They get to do fun stuff too. Even Scarlett has figured out that if she makes a big enough mess while eating lunch or poops through her clothes, Tricia will give her a bath (baby party time!). The TV is rarely on when she's here. I usually come home to find beautiful drawings, kids playing outside, or chalk art on the driveway.
Tricia came to our house one day armed with pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, google eyes, and puffy balls. Here is a butterfly.
Here is a choo-choo train.
Here is a caterpillar.
Earlier this week, the kids made masks with Tricia. This is a cat, but they also made a dog and a bunny rabbit that Tricia took home with her.
Sofia and Tricia have been working on this doll for a couple of weeks now. They have hand sewn the body and stuffed it and then hand sewn the dress. They are planning to still had hair and her face.
