"Oh the Places You'll Go..."

Alas, we have had to bid the public transit system adieu.

So maybe you are wondering: how do we get around town now? Well, it's just so easy.
L. can pedal her way around any old street that isn't a hill. And if we run into a steep incline (or she decides that she's not going a single step further--although never in a Million Years would she Dream of throwing a tantrum over this), I can usually line it up just so, and with the stroller push the trike (with her on it), then keep moving.
But when neither of those are an option, just pile them all into --or rather, onto-- a stroller. And if L. keeps her legs up, it's not so hard to push it, and it only weighs about 85 lbs; what a breeze.
Three carseats in the back of a VW Jetta? No problem (if you slam the doors shut really hard). Oh, and keep A.'s loving fingertips away from BR's eyeballs: L. gets the middle seat.

at the "bahk"

we enjoyed an outing to the park the other day. Well, some of us did, anyway.
"Bahk" is one of A.'s new 'words'. She mostly grunts and squeals still. But when we pulled into the parking lot and she got a view of where we were headed, she got SO excited: "WOW! Bahk!"

more from La Luce...

At dinnertime, L. was trying to negotiate her way into eating something more appealing. After about 10 rounds of this, I was kind of exasperated.
L: Mommy, I want Cheerios with milk for my dinner.
Me: L., what are you talking about!?
L (confused): I'm talking about Cheerios!


"Mommy, I have a secret."
"What's your secret, L?"
"I love Daddy. And I love BR. And I love A., AND I love Daddy. And BR."
"What about Mommy? Do you love Mommy?"
"I love A., and I love Daddy, and R., and...TREES!"

Storing Things in Safe Places

A. loves to pack things up, stack up pots and pans, hide things in conveniently-difficult-to-find-places, etc. If I can't locate something, I usually check the tub.
Oh, and this must be done while wearing a hat. Of course.

A. & the Popsicle (take 2)

she's so suspicious, what's the deal?!

all tuckered out

I got L. all ready for her "nap" ( she usually just hangs out in her room and plays) then stepped out of the room to attend to the others. When I got back she was already passed out!
(ps: this was extra-cute because she was snoring!)
