Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

Conversation with Baby Girl

After an extremely busy Saturday…

Baby Girl: “Mommy, for some reason my body still wants to play but my head says I should relax…”

Mommy: “Sweetie, always listen to your head…it’s where your brain is, so it’s much smarter”

Don’t judge me.

Sunday Morning Ninja?

So here I am…another Sunday morning sneaking downstairs to my laptop. I’m feeling quite proud to be writing at 7:15am without disruptions. Can you feel the dedication?

Oh wait…its 8:15am?

Oh yes…spring forward and all that jazz!

Okay, well here I am at 8:15am on a Sunday morning feeling quite proud (and dedicated) to be on the laptop without one of the girls catching me in the act of sneaking though the house. I feel like a ninja!

I’m not even making tea or coffee because I’m afraid the sounds of movement will wake somebody up! Sigh…

Yes, this is my life!

So now I can begin!


The girls? Oh right…they’re good!

Diva girl has another loose tooth and I’m about to raid her piggy bank and put the money under her pillow. I need a loan.

Seriously…how many freakin’ teeth does she have anyway?!

Baby girl has reached a new level of cuteness with a large dose of attitude. She gets it from her sister.

Did somebody snicker???

Words like “definitely” and “awesome” and phrases like “no really, I’m totally serious” spill out of her mouth on a regular basis but yet the word “three” still sounds like “free”.

Go figure.

But that’s okay, because she’ll be four in June and she won’t care about three (free) anymore!

Diva girl will be 7 next month and she is a comedian, performer, athlete and little ‘Miss Know it All’ who corrects her sister every chance she gets!

Oh man…the fights are becoming legendary!

I think I need to buy a referee jersey and a whistle.

But first I need coffee. All this sneaking around really takes its toll!

Baby girl is a talking whirlwind now. We are having full and interesting conversations about daycare and what she ate for lunch. We can discuss the merits of watching Dora or Diego in the morning and when to wake up her sister. Okay, it’s not as sophisticated as it sounds, but I love it. Listening to her is so much fun. Everything is said in a high pitch at an even higher level and ends in a question. When you tell her it’s time to use her inside voice, she whispers every single conversation until you tell her to speak up…and boy does she ever!

But I think the cutest thing is her pronunciation of most words that start with ‘s’.

In Baby girl’s world, it is apparently silent.

“Mommy, I want ‘nack, peese!”  Translation: “…snack, please!”

“Is it ‘nowing yet Mommy?” Translation: “…snowing yet Mommy?”

“He’s ‘noring to yowd” Translation: “…snoring to loud” and she’s talking about her Daddy…not me!

How could you not be engaged in a conversation with such abundant cuteness?

I mean come on!
