Overheard while getting the Squidlets ready for bed.

K to E: “When you’re done getting your jammas on, want to get married to me?”

 E to K: “All wite!”

K to E:  “Here is the rug where we will dance after we get married in our jammas. Let’s get married, your Majesty!”

From the mouth of a babe.

E just said “Daddy play with me, he’s my best friend!”
She is showing K how to play with the lincoln logs. S plays lincoln logs with E quite often.

A new milestone for K

K went to a birthday party and sleepover this last week – my baby slept over at her friends’ house! (And yes, it was two friends who invited her, they are sisters). I stayed til 10pm just in case she had a change of heart, but she was so jazzed to stay and they had a wonderful time. I spent some time chatting with their mom and it was really a lovely time all round. I have the feeling that this is the first of many sleepovers.

In other news, three of the new windows are in (main bath, guest bath, and kitchen) and the new storm door as well. The big living room window is at the store and we’re set to install on Wednesday. EEEEEEEEE! I will have a separate entire post on the windows, but I wanted to give an update. It will be SO NICE to have a warm living room window so we don’t have to shroud it in insulated curtains to stay warm this winter.

“Friend of the Week” at school this week.

K is “friend of the week” at school this week and I had to make a poster for her this weekend. I started at 11:30 last night because, well, that’s how I roll. It kind of sucks and I need to find a way to not procrastinate so much, but I started dinking with it during the day and both kids just jumped on me.

I also need to blog about the Halloween fun we had over the last few days, but we’ll start with our Friend of the Week (it is Pink week, too – so appropriate!):

Irritation, thy name is SNOW.

It has been snowing all day here. I didn’t realize it was going to get this heinous this fast and didn’t get the hoses and sprinklers in. I hope they aren’t broken.


Also, K is getting bullied at school and I am really stressed trying to figure out how to deal with it. I don’t want to be the parent who calls the Whaaambulance every time her kid gets shoved, but on the other hand, I don’t want my kid to be bullied the way I was all through school.

My hair, let me show you it part deux.

Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance:

Unfortunately, I vastly overestimated my ability to camoflage and perform a shag hair cut on a squirmy four year old. Also, a dressmakers shears is NOT the proper implement for cutting a large swath of hair. We now own a barber’s shears. And a comb.

Look, mom, I’m METAL!


Also, happy International House of Cephalopods Awareness Day!

My hair, let me show you it.

Once upon a time, there was a little girl with long blonde hair:

And then there wasn’t:

The End.
