Kitty!

Cora loves her kitties! She got a grey kitty from Uncle Mark ("Kitty Kitty ")for her birthday in October and got so attached to it wet thought it might be a good idea to have a backup...  So brown kitty ("Kitty Cat") came home with us, too. Grey kitty stays in her bed, and brown kitty travels with her everywhere 😇

Chocolate milk...

Sometimes when mama makes you stay up way past nap time to run errands, you get chocolate milk. And that's just awesome. Especially when you're so sleepy that everything is just plain funny!!

Birthday season!

When you have a toddler, you go birthday card shopping with them in mind... Hence, lots of animals make their way into the mailbox...

My little world

This is the best time of day, when baby is freshly laundered, food is in our tummies, and Sandra Boynton pays us all a visit.

Egg hair

This morning at breakfast, Cora had a fuzzy in her hair. I pulled it out and showed her. She then used her eggy little hands to straighten her hair like I did, giggling the whole time. I wiped her hair off with a wet wipe, and she "fixed" her hair with a huge grin. I let her laugh, and laughed with her as I just wiped off her hands so she could tidy her mane without leaving egg remains on her head.

This is parenthood, not making a big deal of the little things like sticky hands. Is it easy? Nope. But when your kiddo is punchy and trying to help you out, it's okay if things get messy. Your little one is learning big people things from you - not just how to do chores, but flexibility, grace, and lightheartedness.

Little Helper

Bear made it down almost an entire aisle at the grocery store by using the bottom of the shopping cart as a walker. She really enjoyed herself, and this mama is very proud of her little girl-child.
