T & P - the friendship continues...

Apparently I'm a bad kitty mommy too. I know this because my cat is so desperate to be brushed she is willing to have my 18 month old child brush her. And T takes her job very seriously.

Now, I grabbed the camera a little late but the video below gives you the general jist. Phenix as always is a good sport. In the video, you hear T say "Me!" "Me!", that's T speak for "P!" "P!". I often refer to Phenix as Miss P (with that cat's attitude - yes she's a diva, you have to call her Miss).

T confuses her P's for her M's. Every time she sees or hears a plane when we are outside, she hollers "Mane!" "Mane!" and points. You have to give the kid credit, she's trying really hard to make her point known. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, does it? Let's just say, she doesn't get that from her dad.

What you don't see is that shortly before I got the camera, Gryffin arrived on the scene, expecting to get brushed before Phenix as he thinks he is numero uno on the brushing roster. If only I could have captured the utter contempt in his eyes when he saw that T was doing the brushing. It was a "Ah, how could you let HER have the brush? The audacity!" It was truly priceless.

I have added this video as it is completely gratuitous but its funny. T has found her tent a new during play time and apparently so have the cats.

Life is just snot fair sometimes...

Sometimes you can be ready to greet royalty...

And other times, you are just (s)not.

I'm not sure you can see this poor sick kid's face. She finally had a decent sleep yesterday afternoon and this is what I was greeted with when she decided to wake up. A bad hair day was the least of her fashion faux pas'. She has a sore nose from too many attempts at evacuating her nose and she had dried snot (for lack of a more descriptive word) all over her face. But as her father said, "At least she is smiling!"

That's my kid, the one who used to blow bubbles out her nose when she was sick, now grins like a crazy lady when she's is faced with a camera, even when she looks as bad as this. I have trained her well.

Someone once said that if you wake up with really bad bed head, you had a great sleep. I wonder what you have when you have snot too? All I know is that she is so going to hate me when she is older for sharing this photo.

For the record, we all seem to be on the mend from our transition to fall colds.

I wear my sunglasses at I can, so I can....

OMG, my child is channeling her inner Corey Hart. Next she'll be doing her rendition of Twister Sister's "We're not going to take it!" Now, if only she'd have "Sweet Dreams" at night, haha - I hate the 80's.

I'm too cool for school. I get to kick back and drink my milk and eat my snacks all day.

I'm truly a softie at heart! Come over here and give me a hug, you big old Mommy!

Pumpkin patching at Cox Farms

Today we went to Cox Farms to look for a Hallowe'en pumpkin with a local moms group

T enjoyed herself but took her time trying to decide what pumpkin to pick.

The great salsa boo boo!

T has learned how to dip chips like a pro...if only she could learn how to balance a bowl on her knee! Oh well, accidents happen. Not to worry, the salsa rinsed out fairly well...

T's first hair cut!

So we finally caved and took T for her first haircut while Nan was visiting. T did really well and just sat in the shopping cart at Walmart. She was transfixed on another lady in the salon who was getting her hair put in pink rollers.
