A rocketship!!!

When I saw this strange structure on the freeway after I picked up my daughter from school, I was super excited to ask her what she think it was. We always try to introduce new words to her vocabulary whenever we possibly can so I was going to tell her it looks like a spaceship, with spaceship maybe being her new word for the day.

When I asked her "sweetie, did you see that? Did you know what it is???". She replied with gusto and enthusiam and said "It's a rocketship!!!!!"

Ok, I was dumbfounded... totally didn't expect that ;) At least I know she's learning from school or from the ipad... whichever ;) I left it at that since a rocketship looked more fitting than a spaceship anyways ;)

My daughter never fails to brighten my day ;)

What a cookie can do...

While giving her a bath, I asked my 2.5yr old if she thinks she can spell a few words with her bath letters. First we tried HAT, then RAG, then BUN , then JUMP. I would say the word then say the sound of each letter then she would find the correct letters from the pile and stick them on the wall (I'd say HAT- hah, aaa, tttt and she would understand what I meant). Since she only has one letter of each that she had to borrow the A and U from the previous words that's why BUN is missing the U and HAT is missing the A.

Her motivation??? A cookie for each word she spells correctly.

Yes, she is my cookie monster and I am so proud of her ;)

Natural remedy for coughs...

Lemons, honey, rum... wait, rum??? Really?

Goodbye truck...

After 4 yrs and only accumulated 20k miles with us, it's time to let go. I'm sure another person or family would take care of you more than we can right now. Thanks for the good times ;)

Goodness, I realized every little step we take for the past few months brings us closer and closer towards plan 2013...

Yes, i am a working mom...

Kiddo is sick since Tuesday. Hubby stayed with her for the past 2 days. It's my turn to stay with her to watch her today... difference is, I am working remotely from home while I watch my child.

I attended a quick 30min meeting on the phone and here's what surprised me after I checked on the little one.... a wall and toys full of marker pen doodles!!! Arrrggghhhhhh! And yeah, not only that, they're on my ipad too!!! I think I'm going to have a heart attack...

So yeah, I can feel my blood rising up on my head. Crap.
