Random things I learned today ..

1. Elmo stickers will stick to a cat's butt no matter how fast he runs and spins and jumps.
2. If one of your kids comes to you with a tube of toothpaste with no cap saying, "uh-oh", resist the temptation to investigate. You're better off not knowing ...
3. Reese's rashes are definitely not caused by peanut butter.
She was sweet enough to demonstate just how non allergic she is by smearing it all over her belly .....
and face ....
and hair.
4. The combination of a two year old, a comb, and your hair can only have one outcome .. you in tears, holding a clump of your hair in your hand.
5. There is a slight possibility that the other people in line at Starbuck's do not think your kid is as cute as you think she is .. especially while she's counting pennies to give to the barista. "One .. two .. free .. four .. eight .. nine .. ten .. ooonnnnee .. twwwoooo .............."
6. A child who insists she is starving and will absolutely not live another minute without sustenance will immediately turn up her nose and happily leave an untouched dinner plate on the table after you have slaved away in the kitchen. Somehow just seeing you work that hard for nothing will change her from a whiny, clingy, screaming baby into a happy, singing, laughing child.

and finally ...
(I actually learned this lesson on Friday but it's still a good one to keep in mind...)

7. If a two year old eats only skittles for dinner (don't ask), chances are you'll be seeing them again around 3:00 a.m. ....
and 3:30 a.m. ....
and 4:00 a.m. ....
and 4:30 a.m. ....

brilliant.

a glimpse into the future

Sooo .. the girls were playing with their dress up stuff the other day ..
Kaelin first went for the Princess look (big suprise there huh?) while Reese decided to top off the princess hair with a pimp hat. God love her.


Kaelin decided next to be a Doctor .. which could come in very handy if she follows that thought into adulthood


Learning how to write prescriptions for Mommy ..


on second thought ... no way am I trusting a Doctor who makes that face and puts a shot in her ear.

No comment.
