I am really, really, glad January is over. I think I was cursed or something. With multiple work deadlines, a potty training puppy, a potty training toddler (yeah we're still working on that), syncronized accidents from the dog and the toddler, doctor's appointments for Mia in LA and Palm Springs, a 2 day work trip to AZ with 2 kids and the dog, sick kids (with combined durations totaling about 3/4 of the month), YW responsibilities, multiple glass items broken on the tile, and who can forget the Goldfish crackers dumped in the dog's kennel. . . . . it was a rough month. Somehow writing it all down makes it seem much less significant, but it nearly did me in. Maybe the worst part was that I was a more than a little grumpy. That certainly never helps the situation. But, it's FEBRUARY. Growing up it was always one of my favorite months of course because of Valentine's, but also because of my birthday. The latter being much less exciting now as I am turning the big 30 this year. . . but surely there will be cupcakes and who can't get excited about that?!
Not a lot of photos of those unexciting events of January, but here goes. . . .
I found the kids sleeping in multiple unusual places. . . Mia at the top of the stairs when I thought for sure she was in bed; Kail on the rocking chair insisting it was comfortable (there is not even a cushion); Kail with the dog. Notice Mia is holding the dog in every picture. She insists on carrying her everywhere, much to my dismay. I have given up on asking her to stop. The constant "Mia put her down", "Mia you're hurting Rosie", "Mia stop pulling her tail", "Mia she's biting you", was getting exhausting. They're both still alive and I am just going with it. And when it comes down to it, I think they both really like each other. Oh and I must mention the pics of Kail with her new really great McDonald's toy. She insisted I take a picture of her with 'Sparkle' the stuffed rabbit. Notice she's riding in style on the edge of the scooter. Silly kid. So that's it. . . on to the month of LOVE!
