Sometimes I wonder what goes on in her mind

Yes, this will be another potty-training related post. So yesterday, I decided since it wasn’t that hot out when we got home, and with the sun going down I could work mostly in the shade, I decided to hit the front yard and do some weeding.  I had the Kiddo stay outside with me while […]

Make me a sammich!

She is reaching the age where she can do simple tasks or errands for us if we ask.  For instance, one day I was in the bathroom, and had forgotten to check the toilet paper stash before going about my business.  There was none left, so I asked her to go get me some more. […]

She just can’t shake the strep virus

First, there was a sign on the door of her classroom, (a few weeks ago), noting a confirmed case of strep was in the pre-k room next door (they go through the same main door, pre-k is separated from preschool by a half-door). That weekend, she came down with a sore throat and spent a […]

Halloween is right around the corner

Like anyone doesn’t realize that already. LOL I still haven’t decided what the Kiddo is going to be this year.  I don’t even think she has any clue either, since she doesn’t quite understand the idea fully just yet. Her first Halloween, she was a vampire witch.  It fit perfectly because she was just getting […]

Advancing in potty training

I am happy to report that the Kiddo used the potty for #2 last night!  This is only the second time in two months that she has done so.  The first time she went into the bathroom by herself and called me in, this time she walked up to me as I saw on the […]

My child is strange sometimes

But whose isn’t, really?  Kids can do some really funny things, and also some really weird things. Something she likes to do recently, and I really have no idea why… is climb on the couch and wedge herself behind me (kind of like if she was going to do a piggy-back ride, but sitting), wrap […]

Fun with Playdough

Tuesday evening, my husband decided we should go to the toy store and buy the Kiddo some new playdough and some of the play sets that go along with it, since a) she really likes playing with playdough and the accessories when she is at school, and b) it would give the two of them […]

Chapstick: It’s the new Crack.

“Jus’ a wittle bit.” Anytime the Kiddo sees my purse, or even a glimpse of a tube of Chapstick (or any type of lip balm, for that matter), she HAS to put some on.  And she says that phrase, to let me know she is bent on doing so. She will unzip my purse, and […]

New template

I wanted to add a header – well, add text to the header – but the template I was using before didn’t have a header for starters, and second, I couldn’t find any good alphabets to match up with the colors. So I switched to a different template and added text to the header.  I […]

Finally, a different movie

I finally convinced her to watch something else besides Toy Story 2.  I think my poor iMac was about to keel over from playing that one constantly. We’ve moved on to Lilo & Stitch.  I expect that one to play over and over.  And over and over.  And over. I swear I start dreaming about […]
