On a lighter note,
I have an apology to make to my adorable, funny, devilish, littlest daycare girl.
About a week ago my daughter Sam found her in the bathroom where she’d unrolled all of the toilet paper.
Sam said “Did you do this?”
To which Nic responded “Yes”.
Sam promptly had her roll it back up.
Fast forward to the next week.
I find Nic in the bathroom where the toilet paper is once again rolled out and on the floor.
I gave her ‘the look’ and she quickly said “I didn’t do that!”
I believe I gave her a ‘hmm, mmm’ and said ‘let’s clean it up’.
Two days later, when the girls weren’t here, I walked in to find the toilet paper roll unrolled again!
Just then a strong wind blew in through the open window and I saw the toilet paper flutter.
It was the wind.
Nicole wasn’t fibbing.
I’ll be apologizing to her and I think extra hugs are in order!
My little devilish, funny girl was telling the truth!
I love that little peanut…
I hope your day brings a little quirky adventure~
Our favorite two little girls came over for a visit today.
Their Mom and Dad were busy running the Wolf Track Classic Dogsled Race here in Ely. It’s a mere 60 miles which I’m sure there dogs thought was a walk in the park.
It’s amazing to watch these dogs and their excitement as they pull up to the starting line.
Those dogs are hopping, jumping, barking, and croaking! (OK, hahaha, I had to throw the croaking in there because one of their dogs is named Frog and he literally sounds like one!) Here’s the YouTube video link: Read more
I had my yearly checkup the other day. They did all the basics…
First I had my blood pressure taken.
Dr. Nicole said: “Is it getting tight?” This, as she was pumping and pumping and pumping the cuff.
Next she said: “Now I need to chseck yow eyes and eaws.”
“Yowr eyes awr good.”
Right ear: “This eaw is doughty.”
Left ear: “This eaw isn’t doughty…but it’s kind of haiwy.”
(To which I said, rather surprised…”WHAT!?!”)
She went on to explain…”Fwom yowr haiw.”
Then it was time to check my heart.
She asked first “Whearw is yow haught?”
Then she listened very intently and proclaimed “Yowr haught is stwong and healthy.”
“Now I need to give yow a sot.”
I pretended to look worried and she said, “Sots let yow be helfy. Sots have medicine.”
Then she checked my temperature and said “Yow mouf is kind of sad.”
Which of course made me smile…
so I gave her a hug.
I love my little daycare 3 yr old Doctor.
She makes me smile.
Ps…Be sure to clean your ears before your next checkup!
As my readers know, I did daycare for 4 years. The two little peanuts I watched are my absolute favorite 2 and 4 year old toddlers in the whole wide world. They are the funniest little characters who continue to steal our hearts in our weekly visits. Many a humorous blog post has been written about them, such as…Goats in Bathrooms, Kitchens, and Jumping on Chairs, Belly Buttons and Boogers, and My Mommm Said Sooooo. Read more
Best almost-4-year-old quote ever.
I bought these little hangers a couple of years ago at IKEA. At the time I thought they’d be cute little person hangers for their coats, and since the little people I watch have 88 sled dogs, what better hangers than doggie butts?
It wasn’t until I cleared them off yesterday (of extra scarves, mitten, hats) that Elena really noticed them.
And yes, that was her first question. “Why’s his head out there?”
Of course it was said with all the cuteness you can imagine in a sarcastic almost-4-year-old tone…insinuating that I was doing something wrong, or obviously stupid as I put their heads outside.
I just love a little person’s perspective.
As I told her Mom the story after work, I was told another funny story involving Miss E. Her Dad had taken her and her sister on a road trip to visit their cousins (and to pick up his deer head mount). You can see it coming right? On the way home, the little Miss says “Dad, he’s lookin’ at me!”
Then a few moments later adds “Dad, can he blink?”
Have a good day! And if you’re not – make it better by looking at things through the eyes of a child!
ps…Now remember when you look at this picture…I AM a thankfully imperfect woman, so NO I did not clean the door or wall before taking the picture, and YES that’s weather-stripping in the door, and YES it ends before it hits the floor…don’t ask me…I don’t have a clue. That’s my husband’s department!
