School of hard knocks

Good lord today was just a terrible, horrible day. To put it bluntly, toddlers are not graceful.  They’re still working out that thing called balance, and haven’t mastered how to regain one’s balance if they start to lose it.  Hell, I’m an adult and I still haven’t quite figured that one out yet.  So, take […]

Countdown to her Birthday

Five more days, and my baby will turn three years old.  Wow, time flies! I invited four of her friends from school, so far one has RSVP’d, but I did give the invitations a bit late (last Wednesday), so I pretty much expected to not hear from anyone until this week.  The one child who […]

If one says no, go ask the other

She’s already learning this trick, although thankfully for the most part it doesn’t work out to her advantage.  Last night I was cooking dinner, and she wanted me to open a package of Sun Chips (one of the little 100 calorie packs) – I told her no, because I was gettig dinner ready and we’d […]

Her upcoming 3rd Birthday Party

It’s quickly starting to look like Chuck E Cheese would’ve been the cheaper route, but we’re non-conformists, dang it!  Just because the other two kids had parties there, doesn’t mean we should, too.

Going to another birthday party

And it is again at Chuck E Cheese.  I am going to give the Kiddo some vitamins over the next few days to hopefully ward off whatever bugs are lurking at the pizza place.  I should have been gearing her up prior but I’m forgetful like that.  Bad mommy!

Christmas day began with a THUD

And no, I’m sorry to say it wasn’t Santa’s reindeer stomping on our roof. Sometime in the middle of the night, the Kiddo came into our room and got into bed on my side.  I was aware of this, because when she first got in bed, she laid completely ON me.   I was on my […]

Countdown to Christmas

Only a couple of days left – are you done shopping? We are, with the exception of some sodas for the holiday party and a few other food items. But as of yesterday our gift shopping is complete, I had two things left to pick up and I was able to get those, one of […]

Countdown calendar

Yesterday my husband came up with the idea of making a countdown calendar for the Kiddo, to help her see how many days are left before she gets her presents.  Every single day she asks, “my presents?”, so she grasps the concept that she’ll be getting to open presents, however she doesn’t quite get that […]

She’s rocking the piggy tails

Ever since she stayed over at her grandmother’s house and MIL put piggy tails on her for school last Friday, the Kiddo has been all about the piggy tails.  Every single day.  So now to our morning routine we’ve added putting her hair up in piggy tails before we head off to take her to […]

Off to Grandma’s House

Well, the Kiddo is going to her grandmother’s house tonight after preschool.   Originally it was just to be babysat for a couple of hours while my husband and I went to a Christmas show, but I guess his mom has a party to go to this weekend on the Kiddo’s normal overnight day, so […]
