Out To Lunch With Daddy

John had to be in town today, so he took Kambrielle and I to lunch. Since I had the camera with me, I snapped a picture of her before we left. She enjoys one-on-one time with us so she has our undivided attention:).

2 Year Old Gone Messy

I've decided there is something in the air here that has made my youngest go crazy. Yip, home a little over two months and she has caught a germ that has made her clean gene go messy!!

Last night I was in the kitchen loading the dishwasher. In she comes holding her hands out wanting them wiped off, along with a wet head. The "oh so intelligent mom in the house" starts asking questions in English. "Why are your hands wet?" "What have you been into?" Now granted, I"m 99.99% sure she understands quite a bit of what we are saying, but she just looks at me and doesn't say a word. Then my "Mommy knows something is up mode" kicks in and I see those little brown eyes start sneaking peeks toward the living room. Ahhhhh haaaaa my internal "this isn't good" alarm starts beeping and I head in the direction of those give-away glances.

What do I find? ALL of her apple juice from her sippy cup all over the flooring of their new play kitchen, all over the "counter" and in one of the play kitchen dishes. Thank goodness for cheap baby wipes!! So while I'm on my knees cleaning the mess, I revert to my Kannada/English combination of communication with her. So we will see how long it takes her to try something like that again. Yet I suppose we can look at the bright side...... She didn't roll her eyes at me when I was talking to her!! The little stinker started the eye rolling hours after I left the orphanage with her.

Ever have the "never-ending crud"? I got this nasty bug after Christmas and I've still not kicked it. John keeps telling me he is going to send me to the doctor, but I just laughed at him. Not much one can do about a virus!! Although, I should hack on him and share it, since he so lovingly left me with all 4 kids in a Phenergan induced haze. Venting here, but WHY do husbands think the Mom can do it all and be sick at the same time? When he gets sick, he crawls in bed, sleeps for a day or two, while I keep the kids away, and bing, bang, boom, he is back on his feet feeling fine....grrrr.

So, I have not disappeared, I'm just dragging along with my Ginger Ale in hand. No crafting inspiration has hit either, which is probably a good thing. I have 2 sets of little hands that have decided to get into EVERYTHING!! A certain 3 year old has decided she needs to show a certain 2 year old every naughty thing she can think of. In the past week we have had White Out painted on my hardwood floors to conditioner smeared into dry hair. So to be on the safe side, the craft room door is shut with all scissors locked up. I hate to begin to imagine what she would come up with those in hand...........sigh.
