What 80's toy are you?

You're a Speak & Spell!! You nerd, you.
Just because you were disguised as a toy
doesn't mean you weren't educational,
you sneaky bastard.

Hubby was GI Joe with Kung Fu grip, and when I tried to do it for Wee One, she was a My Little Pony. Take this test to see which one you are!


Cutest mugs *EVAH!!*

I found these at Disney Shopping today, and I love them. I think I might have to buy the set just to get the Cinderella one - and only because I love the saying on the back of it! I wish I knew what the others said, but they sure are cute!


Some cutsie little things...

Just a bunch of cute little things Wee One has done over the past few days.

• Last night I introduced her to the wonders of the Hokey Pokey. It’s SO funny watching her try and do it, and she calls it the “Pokey Pokey” And when it comes time to “do the hokey pokey and your turn yourself around,” she puts her hands on her hips and shakes her booty back and forth. It’s hilarious.

• She likes for me to tell her the story of the Three Little Pigs. And she tries to help. Her favorite part is when the wolf says “Little Pig, Little Pig, let me come in” and they respond “Not by the hair of our chinny-chin-chins!” Only when she says it, it comes out “Little Pig, COME IN! Not *my* chin-chin-chin!” (last part said with hand on her hip and in a VERY sassy voice.) She also likes to say “Puff, puff, BLOW!” while blowing in my face (and usually spitting on me.) It’s quite funny.

• She’s learing the words to “Ring around the Rosie”: “Ringy Rosie, Pockey Posey, Ashes, Ashes FALL DOWN!” (as she falls into a giggling heap on the floor)

• She still has her nookie (pacifier) and a guy at Mazzio’s tried to bribe her the other day. He offered her a brownie if she would throw it away. She took it out of her mouth and seriously considered it, but then told me, “No, I no want brownie. I want nookie” and popped it back in her mouth. So much for getting rid of it!

• She has taken to putting things around her neck like a cape (her two favorites are hubby’s pj pants and one of my scarves) and running through the house shouting “SUPER BUNNY!!!!” We have no idea where she got this, but is sure is funny!

• The child gets irate if I try to touch something of hubby’s, or he touches something of mine. For example, last night hubby went to look for something in my purse. She got furious and started screaming at him: “NO, NO DADDY!!! That’s *MOMMY’S* purse!” She tried to snatch it away as well. Also, I was putting on my belt one day and it looks a lot like hubby’s. She got upset, took it from me, and as she was running down the hall she was screaming “Not *YOUR* belt! That’s *DADDY’S* belt!”

• Probably the most heart-stopping so far: She LOVES to jump off of things. Chairs, tables, even books on the floor. She jumps everywhere she goes! I don’t mind the little things (standing on two books that are stacked on the floor then jumping off - max height is about two inches), but the big things worry me (climbing up in the dining room chairs and jumping off of them - I’ve also seen her eyeing the table...) I just keep telling myself that this will be good when we start going to the pool...


Happy Mother's Day!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day, and I hope that yours was a good as mine was.


The Princess and the Housework

Sounds like it would make a good fairytale, huh? Sorry to disappoint you, but no fairytales here. Just a few things that I'm VERY excited about.

First, the Princess. I can't remember if I've posted it here (and I'm too lazy to go back and look at the moment), but we're going to Disney World in September! Wee One is so excited about going (except doesn't have any concept of time yet, so gets confused when we're going to town or to see one of the grandparents and I start talking about going), and she has recently gotten a Cinderella dress to wear while we're there. It cost a lot more than I wanted, but I figure if she wears it to eat with Cinderella, to the Halloween party at Disney, for trick-or-treating on Halloween, then for her Cinderella birthday party, we should get our money's worth out of it. I'm so glad we got it, because she ADORES that dress. She has worn it non-stop since we got it, and even slept in it the other night. She looks so stinkin' cute in it, and I can't wait for her to meet Cinderella.

And now, the housework. Someone on a board I visit posted about the 15 minute Housecleaning Challenge. They said they got the idea from www.flylady.com, and here's what you do. You pick a room in the house, set a timer for 15 minutes and clean. When the timer goes off, you can stop, and you see how much you can get done in 15 minutes. OH. MY. GOODNESS. I was shocked at how much got done in just 15 minutes! Wee One's room got completely cleaned and vacuumed, the play room is now completely cleaned and vacuumed, the guest bathroom is cleaned, floors swept and counters and mirror cleaned, my living room is clean and vacuumed (I still have some clothes I have to fold, but the rest is clean), and then in my dining room and kitchen it took two rounds - but they are both spotless now, too. So in 2 hours, all I have left to do is fold some clothes. That's it. And I didn't spend all day working on it, either! Of course I had to spend another few minutes after dinner cleaning back up, but that's ok - I spent less than 10 minutes and woke up to a clean kitchen instead of over an hour and the kitchen being messed up again and nasty when I woke up. I just love this, and am going to try my best to keep it going!
