T and A

Last night I couldn't sleep, so I swiped a Zanny from Erik. I should never do this because it takes about 24 hours for me to truly recover from one. So I woke up this morning groggy (the 2 inches of snow we got last night didn't help)--sludged through my shower, made Sophie's lunch, fixed her hair, etc., and trudged out the door to work.

As I pulled into the parking lot, I realized that for some bizarre reason known only to my zombified brain, I had grabbed Sophie's lunch box and taken it with me.

Obviously, I turned around and drove home to return it. When I walked in the house, I found E on the couch reading, clueless to the fact that his naked daughter had climbed onto the window ledge in the dining room and was industriously making prints in the fog on the window with her butt. She greeted me cheerily, "Hey! Look--it's my crack!"


Today's best thing about being a mom:

Soph's experimental phrase of the day has been, "One hundred per cent!" She just told me that she's "One hundred per cent full" of her "One hundred percent noodle soup." Earlier, she told me, "Mommy, I love you one hundred percent!"

Today's worst thing about being a mom:

Okay--this one may fall in the TMI category. 2 of her teachers have babies that they nurse at school. Several times in the last few days, she's tried to "get a drink" from my boob. I've explained to her that she's not a baby, and only babies get drinks that way, but she's been annoyingly persistent. Kind of lost on this one.

YES! There is nothing more awesome than baby crack. I swear she could totally fit in to the buttcrack clan here.

I actually have some experience with the preschooler wanting to be the nursing baby. Just keep telling her that "booboo milk" (or what ever you choose to call it), is special milk only for babies. And even if you didn't nurse her, let her know that when she grew up to be the big girl she is now, your boobs stopped making milk.

Maybe I'll share some of my funny nursing rememories for you on my underwear so I can stop rambling here.

Buttcrack on the window. Real mooning can't be too far away can it?

I wish that I had some advice about the nursing requests. I think that you're probably on the right track by just telling her it's for babies.

Absolutely adorable!! Love how the husband is just oblivious!! That would be mine!!

this is one hundred percent cute.

I would just say "mine don't make drinks" and leave it at that.

g. has taken to "nursing" her baby doll when i nurse evan...that seems to give her something to do. i just tell her she did that when she was a baby, and now she's a big girl who drinks from a cup.

She is certainly creative when it comes to occupying herself. Maybe butt prints are her calling. She'll make millions as a world reknowned butt print artiste!
