Car wash

"I am making the car not dirty, Mommy."

Hello, operator

Caught this as I was drawing her bath tonight. This is my old cellphone. Here is the conversation:

"Hello, Dana Pearce. I change my diaper. Uh huh. Uh huh. Hi Mimi! Hi Poppa! I mumble mumble something unintelligble. Uh huh. Uh huh. Mommy! You silly! Nona, I change my diaper. Uh huh. Uh huh. I put medicine on my booboo."

Monkey see, monkey do

Scene: Walking out the door on the way to school. Mommy is holding Cara, who is holding Monkey.

Mommy, singing: You and me and Monkey make three!
Cara: No, Monkey doesn’t make three!
Mommy: Then what does Monkey make?
Brief pause, while Cara considers.
Monkey makes gooooood choices.

It rained sometime today. But the ground was already dry by the time we got home, so I didn't think much of it.

I was talking to my neighbor and Cara decided she needed to check out the sandbox... by the time I got up there (2 minutes later, mind you), she was soaked from head to toe and giggling non-stop. It was great.

The joys of napping with a toddler in the house: you get company. Lots of company.

Plus a loving two year old patting you to sleep.

What impressed me, Tim, is that you sleep through it all. Including the "Let's explore Daddy's mouth" part.
