Now if this isn't one classy two year old, I don't know what is. I think it's the the bedhead that really seals the deal.....or is it the singles? We have such high hopes for her.

two timer

January means two baths a day for Addie (or as I like to call it, "a time killer"). She's obsessed with these eggs that fizz and have little dinosaurs inside. We've emptied every local Wal Mart of their stock. Unfortunately, I think there is a mini T-Rex that has clogged our drain.

Ilinke visited over the weekend. Addie is totally enamoured with her. She's the cool auntie who lets Addie do just about anything she wants to her (stickers on the face, reading adult books etc). This is good and bad: good because Addie has entertainment and bad because it makes me look like the biggest drip of a mom around. We were both sad to see her go :-(

happy friday

It's a happy Friday! Evan came over to play today. We started with a bath (at some point, this will be completely inappropriate), and after some lunch, they started playing "nap time". That sounded like a great idea to me, but then I realized it was only pretend.

Taylor Salon

Our house turned into a salon today; services commenced with a pedicure and finished up with a back massage, complete with drool from the customer.
Appointments upon request and gift cards are available. Perhaps I should be first in line because Addie was sure to inform me today that my toenails were yellow. I guess a pedicure is in order.

Winter Wonderland

Every Friday, Suzi and I have the good fortune to kid swap; this week, Addie got to go to Evan's house just after a 10 inch snow storm; I, on the other hand, got to go to the mall and enjoy some quality adult conversation with a good friend! I'm not sure who enjoyed herself more, but we both came home all smiles. I sure am thankful that I have such a great sister in law!

Since I'm never good at keeping my resolutions, I decided my success rate would be higher if I simply resolved to drink more rather than eat less. So far, I'm off to a good start.
When I took the beloved martini glass from its closeted existence and realized that it was literally coated in a 1/4 dust, I knew that this anti resolution did indeed promote positive change: cleaner stemware. And, when life gives you lemons, make lemon drop martinis!
