Book Mark This Page!!!

It's still a work in progress, but come on over and visit! And leave me a comment if you do so I know who is following!

We're Officially Retiring

The blog that is.

But no fear, we will have a new home. We're making the leap over to Wordpress. I think the new blog is going to be pretty fabulous, so check back in the the next few days for a link! It's kind of a work in progress, so once we get the layout down, I'll let you know!

Am I a Terrible Mom......????

For posting this picture??? Cracks me up! We were in Florida and she was upset, crying, etc, then out of nowhere does this and starts laughing! Now she does it all the time. But usually its when she's in trouble or crying from being upset. Anyway, I think it's hilarious!

Also, I wanted to document some recent conversations that Chloe and I have had.

First, Chloe gets time outs when she's in trouble. And she hates them. But I have a special timer that I give her when she's in time out and I tell her that she can get up when it goes off. I go to get it the other day and can't find it anywhere. I figure I've misplaced it, which wouldn't be a huge surprise. Fast forward to today.

Chloe is watching a Dora Halloween special. Backpack and boot's backpack have costumes on, so of course Chloe wants one too. So she goes and puts hers on. It just so happens that we were leaving for the mall, but I tell her that she can take her back pack. As we get to the car I tell her that she needs to take it off so I can get her in her car seat, but that she could have it back. So while I'm holding it, I hear a beep.

Me: What's that? (Pulls the timer out)
Chloe: Time out timer.
Me: Hmm...Did you put this in here?
Chloe: Yes...
Me: Well, why did you put it in your backpack?
Chloe: Well, I no like time outs.

Makes sense. I guess that's a good a reason as any...

Also, Chloe is in this "Mine!" stage. Everything is "Mine!" I hear, "that's mine!" several times a day.

After Trick or Treating, I made Chloe a peanut butter sandwich. A while later I gathered her up to go home (from my mom's) and she still had it. I ask her if she's done, but she says no. So I put her in the car with it. As we are driving home, I have thoughts of it ending up crushed on my car floor, so we have the following conversation:

Me: Chloe? Do you want to give me your sandwich?
Chloe: No! That's mine!
Me: Chloe, I know that's yours. I was just going to take it if you were done. But you need to try talking nicer to Mommy. You also need to learn to share.
Chloe: It's mine Mommy.
Me: I know. But you need to learn to share. Little girls who share get lots of friends. Because that's what friends do...they share.
Chloe: Um. Mommy, friends don't share. Friends go poopie.

WHAT!?!? I would love to know what a toddlers thought process is...

Now these last pictures are ones that I pulled off of my cell phone. Chloe got her hair cut a few weeks back and Ashley curled her hair. She loved it! I think it's pretty enjoy!

A Look Back...




Sunday, October 18, 2009


I know I've written before about how Chloe has a stubborn streak a mile long. Don't get me wrong, she is a very happy child most of the time, but EVERYTHING has to be her idea. And I'm almost to the point that I don't ask her anything anymore because I know what the answer is going to be...NO!

It's so strange, it can be something that she absolutely wants to do, have, see, etc. But if I ask her, she has to say "no". And I'm not really sure where she gets it because it's not like she gets told "No" a lot.

Switching gears a bit, the girl loves her some dinosaurs. It's so funny, she gets so excited when she sees them. While we were in Chicago visiting with Hannah and Esther, there was a dinosaur exhibit at the zoo with a huge mechanical dinosaur moving and roaring. Freaked her out. Every since that day, anytime she sees or hears a dinosaur, you hear, "Dinosaur scare me!" Not in a pitiful or pathetic way, actually she's quite proud of it. Cracks me up. I tried to get it on video this morning, but just ended up with a "No!" fest...

Enjoy! :)
