Kyra said, "They are in love...." LOL!

Sesame Street....circa 1977.

I really wish they'd revisit this and do an updated version of the same thing. *sigh*

And the Snapple bottle cap says.....

"There are more than 30,000 diets on public record."

Hmmmm....now that's food for thought. ;)

What a vocabulary!

Maeve: "I have a flashlight!"

Me: "It's bright, isn't it?"

Maeve: "It's perfect!"

WTF? Where did that word come from?

Poor thing is so oblivious....

Kyra is learning about animals at school this week for science....more specifically, frogs.

But she just made a web (drew a circle and then drew lines outside of the circle) and on it she wrote what she knows about caterpillars.

My eyes skimmed the paper and saw the usual facts (good girl!). However, then my eyes met a word that I didn't recognize.

She meant to write "they are insects". Instead, she wrote, "they are insex". PIMP!

For a moment there I was scared that she learned something that she shouldn't have!

Thank God for "as of yet" oblivious kids!

Something is wrong with me.....

Fall is officially here. There's a chill in the air. It just feels different. Everyone is in a good mood. Me included. I see pumpkins. I smile. Heck, we even have some Halloween decorations outside this year.

What the heck happened? Usually I loathe Halloween and all that comes with it. As we get closer to it, I cringe more and more. Not this year. I don't know why, but I feel a sense of peace about it. I haven't bought candy yet, but I might not have to. We might take the girls to a friend's house on Halloween night or we might head down to the city park. We aren't quite sure yet. I know that we'll have to decide soon.....this weekend at the latest.

My girls are happy with what they are going to be for Halloween. Kyra is going to wear her recital costume from last summer and go as a ballerina. Maeve is going to wear her favorite pink dress-up clothes and be a princess. Easy. Next year, they are going to be Panthers cheerleaders (Friday Night Lights). Mark my words. ;)

I just feel content. I'm actually enjoying this time of year. It's weird. I'm not stressing out about it. Maybe I finally *am* feeling better. Let's just hope that I continue to feel like ME again. It's really nice. :)

Enjoy this beautiful weather! And SMILE!

My little stinker.....

Today I went to pick up Maeve from school and I did my usual asking if she had a good day. She always does.

But today, her teacher said, "Well you know that Maeve uses the potty here, don't you?" Um, NO! I wasn't mad that I was never informed of it. I was just in shock that it was actually happening. I went on to tell her teacher that Maeve did it one time for me last week here at home, but that was it. Usually she sits on the potty everyday at some point, but laughs, does nothing, wipes, and flushes.

Now I don't know if she actually *does* anything in the potty at school. They just told me that whenever the other kids line up for potty time, Maeve does too. They said that she pulls her pants down and takes her diaper off! LOL! I guess she wants to be "one of them". It wasn't until she started school a month ago that she became increasingly interested. I've heard that out of 14 kiddos in her class, 5 or 6 are "training". And apparently my Maeve is one of them!

Nothing like peer pressure among 2 year olds! ;)

Pumpkin time!

We went to our town's pumpkin patch on Saturday evening. My mother-in-law and my niece came up this weekend, so they went with us too. The kiddos had a blast and I got some good pics! ENJOY!

Potty business.....

I'm sure it was a fluke, but Maeve used the potty this morning! She told me that she needed to go, so I took off her diaper. She ran into the other bathroom and got her Dora potty seat and sat on it and got this look of concentration on her face. She knew EXACTLY what to do! Other times, she'd sit on her seat and do absolutely nothing.

That's why I've never pushed the potty issue. With Kyra I did, and that was a mistake. Kyra didn't train till 2 weeks before her 3rd birthday. I think she would have trained a lot earlier if I would have left her alone. One day, Kyra decided to go on her own and never looked back. It was like magic!

I really figured that Maeve would just go ahead and train herself. Honestly, I think it's much easier for them to decide to go. It means less mess to clean up!

I'll keep ya posted.

So much for that uniqueness....

When it came time to think about names for both of my girls, I had two criteria:

1.) The names had to be short.
2.) The names had to be different or unique.

Of course, I wanted to choose pretty names that would flow well with a middle name and our last name too.

I haven't had issues with Kyra's name so far. If anything, people pronounce it KIER-A instead of KY-RUH. So, we just politely correct them.

But when Kyra started school, imagine my surprise when I find out that there's a little boy in her class named Kyle and a little girl in her class named Kyleigh.

How confusing is that? LOL!

At least they aren't the same names!

I can't wait to see what Maeve will encounter with her name. Either the teacher or the teacher assistant at her school keeps spelling her name, "Mauve".

She's NOT A COLOR! ;)

Woman gives birth to own grandchildren.....

Now this is a weird story.

I guess anything is possible in today's world.
