Break my heart why don't ya

Today L very matter of factly stated "I love Daddy better than you." What she meant was I love Daddy more than I love you. I very calmly said "Why?" She replied, "He plays better games and I like his voice better." She then snuck a look at me to see my response. I was quiet for a few minutes and then I kissed her head and said "Even when you say things that make me feel sad I still love you more than anything in the world."
I know she's only four. And this isn't the first time she's made such a comment but it still killed me. I really had to concentrate on not crying. I can't wait until she's fifteen and actually hates me.

Random bunch of pics

I've done something terrible to my little baby girl. You see she had lost most of her hair in the back and around the sides leaving her with this mop of hair on top that resembled a bad toupee. So I decided to trim the front so it wouldn't be hanging in her eyes and thin out the top a bit. It's like the scissors had a mind of their own. I couldn't stop them.This first pic is from this morning the second is from after the massacre. She looks like the guy from the Three Stooges. Do you think she'll ever forgive me?

Miss Z needs her bangs cut, I know. But I'm trying to grow them out. And well, we've all seen what happens when I get a pair of scissors in my hands.

Just cause she's cute. No, I don't normally dress my kids in red and gold taffeta. She's wearing a princess dress, of course.

Now those are what I call CANKLES.

Do you think she was warm enough?

A couple quick updates full of useless information for you

Ella is loosing her hair. I don't mean just the little bits that all newborns loose. I mean her blankets and hats look like a cat rolled around on them shedding massive amounts of fur.

Our neighbors who keep their Christmas decorations up far too long took them down this week.

I'm sick of eating popsicles. What are you talking about? Is that what you are wondering? I have had a terrible soar throat for days so I've been sucking on lots of popsicles.
I ate an entire box of Valentines day candy by myself. I didn't even feel sick afterwards.

Zoey is doing fabulous in her big girl bed. She stays in it for naps and bedtime. No problems at all. What a relief.
Ella missed her four month check up because we had a snow storm the day of her appointment. We'll have to wait a few more weeks to find out how much Miss Chubs weighs.

I'm going to be an aunt. SIL is having a baby girl in June. I'm VERY excited!

My brother, who currently works in S. Korea, was supposed to come home for good in May. BUT he's decided to try to extend his contract for at least another year. That sucks.

Here's some irresponsible parenting for ya

Hubby was going to do our taxes last night. We've used Turbo Tax for several years and it's always been super easy for us to get done. Well he's upstairs on the computer for all of five minutes when he hits a road block. He can't find Ella's social security card. Of course we have no idea what her number is and we can't find the damn thing anywhere. To get a new one takes several weeks at best. What a pain in the ass.

I think my baby needs to start wearing a bra for extra support

Thursday, February 01, 2007

Okay, I don't want to jinx myself or anything, but I put Z down for her nap about 20 minutes ago and she never got out of bed. I can still hear her yapping away to herself in there but she's still in her bed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday she napped on the floor of her room right in front of the door. Sounds comfy.
