Cinnamon Explosion

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Ever wonder what happens when your 3 year old tried to “drink” cinnamon straight from the spice shaker?

She came screaming into the living room where Joe & I were sitting.  I literally fell over because I was laughing so hard. As soon as I realized how miserable she was with the taste in her mouth I sent Joe to get her a drink & I dashed from the camera.  Priorities.


Thank You God for Clorox Wipes

On Wednesday morning I woke up unable to open my eye thanks to a lovely layer of gunk.  Yup, you guessed it, pinkeye.  I have zero idea where it came from.  I’m blaming the shopping cart at wal-mart.  Why?  Because I hate wal-mart.  So I went on a mission to keep the lovely germs contained my only my eye & away from anything that could potentially spread the nastiness.

This morning Paisley & I went to her pediatrician appointment for a follow up to her ear infection last week (Did I mention she had an ear infection last week?  Remember when I used to blog regularly?).  As I was in the exam room, getting Pais out of her car seat, I noticed that she had green gunk in her right eye.  Lovely.  Now we both have it.

So today Elle is with my parents & Paisley & I are wiping our house down with help from a jumbo container for Clorox wipes. Gotta get rid of these germs!!

January Pictures

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

We’ve had a busy few weeks around here.  I thought I’m share some of the pictures with ya’ll.

Last week Joe was the “Mystery Parent” at Elle’s preschool.  It was adorable!  She had no idea that he was coming in (as you can tell in the picture she was playing dress up when we arrived).  She beamed the entire time.  Joe brought in his guitar.  They sang some songs, got to strum his guitar, talked about instruments, & helped him write a “song”.

Paisley learned to love cereal.

Joe, Lee & Matt watched the kids so us girls (Kelli & Nicole) could have some girl time.  But the best part is that it was their idea.  The took the kids to Monkey Joe’s & fed them dinner while us ladies got pedicures, shopped & had dinner.  It was lovely!  Here’s a pic of all the children polishing off some fruit during their picnic in our living room.  I especially enjoy how they basically just threw a food on the floor and let the children figure it out.

I greatly enjoyed my new macbook!  My old computer was very, very tired.  So tired that the screen was having trouble standing upright!  Elle got to pick out her own PJs.  I have no idea where she learned to pose like this?

Speaking of ridiculous outfits.  I got an awesome deal on this dress & cap for Elle…but she wore the hat like this.  Sigh.  We did end up having a lesson on how to wear it, but the camera wasn’t around at that point.  Good thing she’s open to be trained.

There ya have it!  January pictures!  It’s hard to believe that a month ago we were in NYC.  Seems like 6 months ago.

Parenting Fail #2

I’m starting to think that we need to be a bit more careful about what is on the television when Elle is in the room.  This morning she & I were sitting on the couch.  The Today Show was on & they were talking about Conan’s last night on The Tonight Show.  They showed a clip when Steve Carell (aka, Michael Scott from The Office) came on & was talking with Conan.  All the suddent Elle pipes up and says, “Hey!  There’s Michael!”

I guess she’s paying more attention than we thought.

Elle was looking over my should while this picture was on the computer screen:

And this conversation went down

Elle:  Oh, who is that?

Kelli:  That’s John Mayer.

Elle:  It is?

Kelli:  Have I never shown you John Mayer before?

Elle:  No.

Kelli:  Oh, I’m sorry!

Elle:  You should take me to him!!
