Come on Irene!

We evacuated. 

It was so hard to do.

I know that what is important is the safety of my family. 

It is just hard not knowing what we will return to.

Praying for the best.

And drinking some wine to calm my nerves.

Kissing Already?!

Yesterday it happened.  My baby girl kissed a boy.

It went something like this:

H.B.Nanna - "I want a kiss."

Boy - "Ok!"

And then they pecked each other on the lips.

Not the cheek.

The lips.

Granted he is a nice boy but she is 2 and a half. 

Today before she left for daycare I told her that I am not ready for her to kiss boys.  I told her that if she really wants to kiss the boys she has to give them a kiss on the cheek.  "Like this?" she asks. 

I don't think she was happy with me this morning.

Today my daughter asked me to watch Clifford while she was at daycare.

Clifford now goes with us everywhere but I had told her I thought it was a good idea if he stayed home while she was at daycare.

I told her to put him in my office before she left.

This is where I found him.

Thank goodness he is well behaved!

The Things Children Say

I love this age {some days!} because they can say anything and as bad as it can be it still comes out sounding cute and silly.

If you ask H.B. Nanna what we had for dinner last night she will tell you scumb-ghetti. Sounds yummy don’t it?!?

If you ask her why we have to water the flowers she will tell you it is because they are sick.

If she toots and you look at her she tells you that she doesn't need to poop. Every single time.
Even if she really does.

Everyday this week H.B. Nanna has asked for some big craisins. They are really prunes.

One night she told me she couldn't go to bed because it makes her cry.

The other morning I was in my bedroom getting dressed, Stephen was in the bathroom brushing his teeth and H.B. Nanna was in the living room with my Mom. She came running into the room and yelled "You makin a baby!" to which I replied "Excuse me??? Who told you that?" Her response "Nanni!" Nanni says  H.B. Nanna told her I was a naked baby. But I have my doubts. These grandparents really try to be subtle....

One of Those Days

We all have them. Those kind of days where every. single. little. thing. annoys you.

Yep. Today is that day for me.

I can’t explain why it is happening. Hormones? The weather?

Who knows.

Hopefully it will only last today and not carry into tomorrow.

My husband is happy that is office is in the back of the house today and that mine is in the front.
