An Excerpt...

Here's a part of the letter I sent to Hannah this week. I thought it was a good recap of our week. I HAVE TO, HAVE TO post stinking Christmas stuff!!! I swear I'll do it soon. Oh well. This will do for now...

Getting back to normal life after being gone is hard for me, but especially TAY! She's been a total stinker this week. I seriously got all crazy thinking we were out of this terrible 2 thing, and then this week happened;). Also, we've been pretty busy and she hasn't napped, so I'm sure that's part of the problem, because we all know, no matter how much sleep she NEEDS, she will wake up before 7...everyday! Oh the joys. Here's a sampling of some things she's said this week...

*Mom, take these wrappers off--wrappers=crust on bread.

*These dinosaurs are fessional (professional). Hmmm, yep Tay, they sure are professional dinosaurs. They're good at their job

*She did this little giggle and said, "Mom, I'm laughing so hard right now". What?? No you're not. ha

*I said to her, "Tay, say 'yo'" and she said, "yoke"

*I told her my legs were sore from working out, and she put her pointer finger in the air and said, "I have a great idea! I'll help your legs. Let me just go get my blanket." Apparently her blanket heals all things. Thank goodness for that!

*And today on the way home from church in the car Ellie was squealing and Tay said to her, "No Ellie, no. You're not a cowboy".

This week I took her to Disney on Ice. It was awesome. But, one downside was all the people walking around selling stuff. She wanted EVERYTHING. Each time I told her no. One time she said back to me, "I can just look at it then?" Yes, break my heart a little more why don't ya. So then I bought her some cotton candy, and it was TEN DOLLARS!!! I was going to die. And later we got up to go to the bathroom and came back, and boom, cotton candy gone. GONE. At Disney on Ice, someone stole our $10 cotton candy. Oh well. Lesson learned, I should have never bought it in the first place. Tay loved it. She was waving at all the princesses. She said, "I never want to go home". Too bad she got tired at the end and got all crazy and hit me. That made me mad. But, overall, a good night with the Tayster.

The next day we went to the zoo with some friends. Super super nice out. Like way nice. It was so nice to walk around. Tay and Ellie were both really, really good. Which way surprised me because I yelled at Tay on the way over for being super naughty and whiny, and it was smack in the middle of Ellie's nap. But, it was awesome, and they were great;).

Saturday we tried to go to Chuck E Cheese, and it was the worst. It had to have been a fire code violation there were SOOO many people in there. RIDICULOUS. I used to think that place was fun...my opinion may have just changed. But then again, the only times I've taken the kids there is at like 10 AM, and we're the only ones in there. That's the best! And, it's clean. So, another lesson learned.
