We had a good time with Poppa and Gigi tonight, although she was somewhat confused that she couldn't find Nona (Mom was on call tonight). She kept calling her: "Nona! Nooooooona!!" She had a good supper (eggplant parmesan, but she thinks it was pizza, and she ate almost all of it) and really enjoyed herself. To my entertainment, when she finished her supper, she started feeding it to Dixie (Grandma brought Dixie and her bird down with her) who very gently took it out of her hand. It was pretty cute. I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, Cara or Dixie. (Before you ask, YES of course we washed her hands afterwards.)
Poppa is growing his beard again. I'm amused.
Then we came home and had a nice although short bath.... she discovered the whirlpool that happens when the water drains out and was fascinated.
An outstanding evening overall. Yay for happy toddlers!!

Nuff said about this one.
We had a good time at Nona and Poppa's tonight, as evidenced by the grin.
In the spirit of voting I am letting her choose more stuff and lo and behold, it is really helping with the tantrums. So we had a REALLY good day today.
However........ I will be really glad to have you home tomorrow : )

Yes, brave. Because I sat her on the chair by herself so I could get the camera and take the picture.
No damage done. Thank goodness. Equally fortunately, she did not cover the camera lens with paint. Whew.
We had a very good time tonight;. We played outside for a few minutes, then came in happily and ate a great dinner - Italian pasta casserole and strawberries. She had only 1 tantrum - and that was just a category 1 - almost not enough of a tantrum to count. She slept 3 hours today so maybe that helped. We had a nice bath - splashed like crazy and got water everywhere. And she went to sleep happy! All in all a great night. Kind of makes up for the category 4 tantrum this morning on the way to school. Sigh. Good to know that life has balance, huh.

I was pretty impressed with how well she did with a spoon. Please note this is the EXACT same stew that she would not touch yesterday. Somehow it tastes much better today.
Today is your first day on the road. It's going to be hard being away sometimes, for all three of us. So to make things a little better.... I'm starting this blog. Yup. It's your daily dose of Cara. And sometimes me. And sometimes the cats. But mostly the star of the show, your darling girl.
I hope you enjoy it! (And I hope I remember to keep it up!)
