Kiddo: 1, Mommy: 0

Last night we had a first in our house. Our first, “if your kid/s is/are too quiet, that can’t be good”, incident.  I have photographic proof, too.

And on the flip side of this week…

She has entered a very, VERY irritating phase. “I can’t!”, which she says if she either a) doesn’t WANT to do something, or b) doesn’t THINK she can do something (when it is obivous she CAN) – which probably can really just be included in the first item. Yesterday evening she tossed one of her […]

I think she’s almost got it!

All last weekat school, the Kiddo did not have any potty accidents.  She had one at home on Friday evening, but I think she was distracted playing with her playdoh.  Otherwise it seems she has caught on, and has even been doing #2 consistently (except for that accident Friday) on the potty!  Yay!!  Yesterday she […]

Award time

Wow, I got an award from two gals this weekend!  Neat! Thank you to Julie at Moma’s Life and Jacqueline at Mom to Three Sisters for the award. I’ll have to do the “pass the torch” part of the award later tonight or this week.  In the meantime I need to get some stuff done at work […]

I knew she was smart, but this amazed me

On the way home after picking up the Kiddo from daycare/preschool, we chatted in the car with her like usual, asked her how her day was, if she had fun, etc.  Today was someone’s birthday, and there was goodie bags, so she was digging through and eating the candy – a twizzler, a roll of […]

Ready for Halloween?

Yesterday we went to a local farm that has a fesitval every fall (I’ll post a few pix later this week), and afterwards we went to my brother-in-law’s house to hang out and let the kids play.  BIL’s wife wanted to go get her daughter’s Halloween outfit and asked if I wanted to go along, […]

I’m creating a monster

Every time the Kiddo sees W@l-m@rt as we drive by it on the way home from, or even on the way TO school, she asks if we’re going shopping.  And is disappointed if the answer is no (like on the way to school). Personally, I hate shopping.  But, I take her with me when I […]

afternoon naptime

The Kiddo had a pretty good nap this afternoon.  She went down at around 1:45p and got up at about 5pm.  Yep, a fairly long nap, but she seems refreshed. At about 3:15 I started nodding off at my desk, so told my husband I was going to go lay down on the floor of […]

Trying to salvage soiled shoes

This will be a post that discusses poo (as discretely as I can, I hope), so if you are squeamish at the idea of it, avert your eyes and read something else.  If it doesn’t phase you, then read on.  🙂 Yesterday at daycare, the Kiddo had a #2 accident.  Sometimes she doesn’t tell anyone […]

Bedtime favorite

One of my very favorite things that the Kiddo likes to do right now before she goes to bed at night, is to climb into my lap and be held “baby” style, while either I sing alone, or she sings with me – “Rock a-bye Baby”.  Currently, she likes to have me/us insert various names […]
