The other night we went to an all you can eat place for dinner. ( I was tried and hungry and it just sounded good to me don't ask!) After eating my two year old was ready for desert. I took her over and thinking that we would just share I let her pick a bowl of ice cream, a piece of carrot cake, and a cookie. When we returned to the table my sister says to her "wow, that is a lot of dessert!" She beams back and says " yes, my ice cream, my cake, and my cookie!" Then she reaches her little palm across the table and shouts "high five!"

My son really wants a dog. We recently spent time with my in-laws who have two dogs and he has wanted a little dog like grandma's ever since. I sat down with him and began explaining that dogs were a lot of work. I asked him who would feed the dog? He replied enthusiastically "I will!" I asked him well who will walk the dog? Again an excited "I will!" And who will clean up the poop if the dog poops in the house? He tilts his head, "ummm...Mom will!" and that is why we are not getting a dog anytime soon.

When they happen it is a good thing. Since my daughter discovered how to open the child proof knob on her room nap time has been a little more difficult to come by in our house. I have to "police" her door or she will not stay in there long enough to fall asleep. I have to admit I was a little lazy about this today and finally gave up and suggested we all go down to watch a movie. It worked like a charm they were both out in no time. I know not the greatest tool, I need to lay down the law and stick to it! But for now I am enjoying the free time.
