Just another site

Archive for the day “January 31, 2012”


Today has been a very busy day. As a result, I only have one photo. Every morning, the kids come and hang out on our bed between 6 and 7 am. Usually it’s just Z but V woke up early as well – around 5:30 am. I love that they were both smiling.

What Z Said

On the way up to the bedroom, Z wanted to wash his hands. M told him he could if he brushed his teeth first. Well, Z didn’t like that and being a toddler, he threw a tantrum on the flood in his room. In the meantime, I’ve got V, who is upset because we gave her Advil, ready to go to sleep.

So I switched with M and dealt with Z instead. He realized one of his stuffed animals was missing so I went to go get Lamby. While I went, I asked him to do his ‘job’ – which was to brush his teeth. During book time ( he gets 3 books at bedtime and 1 for nap time), he asked to wash his hands. I thought he might’ve forgotten but I guess not. So I told him we could after the books.
Just before I took him to the bathroom, here is what went down.
Me: So, why do u need to wash ur hands?
Z: because it has hand cream on it.
Me: we’ll, why do I want to wash the hand cream off?
Z: it’s datty (dirty)
Me: oh, I see.


I was in the kitchen tidying up when I heard Z say, “I’m going to call daddy.”. By the time I came around to see what he did, the number was already dialing. The beauty of speed dial. M didn’t answer so it kicked into answering machine.

A minute later, M called back and I put on the speakerphone for him. He had a full conversation with Z and it was so cute to see him talking on the phone. I also found out much later that he had been taking photos of his Cream of Mushroom Soup and cucumbers on his plate. So funny.

V and I got to hang out for about 45 min while Z was napping. It’s so easy to just put her down and do other things. I feel bad when I can’t balance my time between the two of them, especially in rough days. She was in such a happy mood.

I think I’m slowly starting to accept the fact that she might just be a catnapper for now. I’m happy if she sleeps much better at night.
