Sophie's better. I'm better. Nuff said.

So--I just peered through her door (no--while I am super mommy, I do not have x-ray vision. Remember her door knob breaking and me climbing out the window? The knob is still missing, so her door has a 2 inch hole in it.) and rather than sleeping, Soph was jumping on her bed, chanting "Cha, cha, cha-cha-cha" like a cracked-up ballroom dance teacher. I opened the door mid jump, and she looked at me, landed on her butt, lay down, and immediately began to fake snore. Looks like a no nap day.

In honor of daylight savings (did we just start saving or unsaving? Damned it I know.) her is a brief Sophie to English lexicon of Sophie words involving time.

last mornin': Any time in the past. ex. "Grandma! Last mornin' I frew up in mommy's bed."

potty time: Potty time is reserved for very specific time intervals: right when mom's food comes at the restaurant, after being buckled into the car seat, immediately after the door closes after being put to bed.

dinner time: Not a time for actually eating, as no candy is involved. Dinner time is strictly for food art creations, and for science type experiments involving volume.

Today's best thing about being a mom:
Nibbling on baby arms and legs.

Today's worst thing about being a mom:
Black marker on my CARPET!

I'm so glad you are all feeling better. I like the idea of a peep hole in the bedroom door.

I love that Sophie knows to fake it when she gets caught. That makes me laugh every time.

God, marker on the carpet sucks! Soph was adorable today. I truly intend on buying her some new pink jammies, and would love to be her new mom. So cute. Glad everyone is feeling okay for the best damn holiday of the year.

I'm totally going to steal that from Soph!

Rob's Room mate: "Rob, did you drink my last beer?"
Rob: Ay...wha...ah... SNOOOOOORE...Ah-wubba-wubba-wubba-wubba...SNOOOOOORE...Ah-wubba-wubba-wubba-wubba...

Last mornin'- where'd she get that one? That is really silly.

Yay for healthy girls! Did you guys trick or treat? Was the costume all she wanted it to be and more?

I totally hear you on potty time. Zach's timing lately is downright uncanny.

Love you girl!

The fake sleeping and last mornin' are priceless. That girl is pure funshine, costume or no.

Kat said...

Very glad everyone is feeling better! I heart that she did stuff last mornin.
