a little reading nook

This is Char Chars favorite spot.
It always has a pillow and blankets.
A few naps have been taken here, and many books have been read. 

I can't imagine how awesome it is for someone so small.

I lost my cake

Every day Nellie comes into my room talking about how we need to go make her some cupcakes, or get her a cake.
No joke,


Yesterday morning it was
"oh dear mommy. I lost my cake, now we need to go find me a new one."
I told her we didn't have any butter
she responds with,
"well mommy, we better go to Trader Joes (her favorite store by the way) and get some butter. Come on mommy, lets go!"

Why oh why

Do children insist on drinking any water that they find?
My kids ALWAYS drink the water in the bath, in the pool, in this pool, pretty much where ever they can find it.
They are known to get some bowl from someplace, fill it with water and drink out of it like a dog...

Kids will be kids I guess..

It has been a pretty mild summer, but these last few days I think it has been rather sticky..  And I don't do sticky... It only takes an instant for it to make me the mean mom who drags her kids kicking and screaming from the park in rage.  Not sure why, maybe because I feel claustrophobic.
Nellie also has recently started to watch power rangers (which is possibly worse than the barbie movies..) she comes to my crying about how she wants to go into the TV and be with the Power Rangers...
I am currently trying to persuade her back to the land of My little pony.

The phone..

One of the worst things for me is calling people on the phone.
It brings me such anxiety. 

I especially do not like calling for a baby sitter.

I don't know why, maybe it goes back to my mission where I had one companion who grew up speaking spanish and refused to call anyone and so I had to.  
It bothered me so much.

So I will just blame it on her.

In other news, my children are extremely naughty..

All better

My little Char Char thinks she is rather funny..

Although it is mostly when she is getting ready to be naughty.

Like bite you, or toss all her food on the floor.

If she bites you then she will ALWAYS give you a kiss and then say 
"there, all better."

And it is pretty cute.

Flour fun

Some days this is our activity.
Sure it makes a mess, but it keeps them happy.
And they will be entertained for like 45 minutes.

Which I think is awesome.

Then once all the flour ends up on the floor, then I bring out the play dough and that keeps them entertained for like another 45 minutes..

Sometimes (all the time really) when I go to the store, I just can't help but buy some flowers. 

They make me happy, and help me want to keep my house clean.

ps. I still LOVE my table!
