YYYAAAWWWNNN!

November makes me so sleepy. I just want to crawl into bed and hibernate until spring--leaving winter to its own cold, grey, miserable devices. Add to that the remnants of a cold, and the recent time change, and I can barely drag my ass from the bedroom to the couch.

Case in point--this morning. Soph woke up at her usual bright and early hour--6:15, except today, my clock said 5:15 when she came tarting in. For the first time, I turned on her shows, put her on the couch with a blanket, and went back to bed.

Big mistake.

I forgot about the Halloween candy. Soph came in my bedroom a couple times, asking "Will you open this?" and I groggily did so, not realizing that I was opening a package of smarties, a mini butterfinger, and a reeces peanut butter cup.

When I came into the livingroom, Sophie was sitting in the middle of a pile of candy, happily eating her way through the stuff she could open herself. There was evidence of her frustration with the candies she couldn't open--a kit-kat wrapper that had been chewed until the chocolate began to ooze through. Sigh.

In addition to forgetting the candy, I forgot the pile of clean laundry sitting on the couch. Luckily only a few things ended up chocolate covered.

Today's best thing about being a mom:
Having a reason to get out of bed

Today's worst thing about being a mom:
While rooting around in the laundry this morning--Sophie discovered a new "backpack." So far, she's refused to take it off, even when offered other more appropriate backpack options. Yes. It's a new fashion trend--the panty-pack.

november is the BEST month for naps. i was cracking up at the candy thing. when i was so sick in the beginning of this pregnancy, i had some moments like that.

I don't want to get out of bed these days either. It's so nice and comfortable in there.

That is a great pose of Sophie. I agree with Amanda. Sophie is such a girl.

I think Sophie's got a GREAT idea there. Little silky feminine backpacks - she's ahead of her time.

I'm sleepy too. Course I'm always sleepy.

Soph looks like she's posing getting ready to do a dance to some Donna Summer 70's tune.

I looked at the picture before reading the post and I was like, that's a really cute satiny shrug she's wearing. how in-style.

I'm wondering how big the panties have to be to fit me that way.

I'm with Patrice. I would need some jinormous panties to fit me so well. Sophie is a doll by the way

I think that girl may just be a genius. She is quite clever!

Hysterical. God, it's amazing what kids come up with...

Satiny Froot o' the Loom backpacks are the best thing since sliced silkies. Awesome.

Knowing that kids are so funny makes me want to have one.
