1-comments here on the blog or little emails. (I am not asking for them, just telling all y'all that do comment that it means a bunch and makes me happy)
2-Finding a killer deal on kids clothes or my clothes for that matter. I am a true to the core bargain shopper. It gives me a rush to find great deals. On clothes... Food, not so much.
3-I have to agree with Shauntell, new socks and PJ's are pretty awesome.
4-I know I said really good food, but I mean.... REALLY YUMMY food.
5-sparkly toes, on me and on my baby... I think I started painting Ry's toes when she was about two weeks old.
6-Romantic-vintage decor' and little Boutique stores, like those you find at Gardner Village.
7-All the laundry done and put away all at one time.
8-All the beds made (this happens way more often than the laundry)
10-A good/easy hair day.. Now don't even say that curly girls have it easy... If you knew what went into taking care, maintaining and laundering of the curls just so you don't have head pubes (sorry, but it feels like that sometimes) Then you would be happy. Don't get me wrong, I love the curls... They bounce.. I am a bouncy kinda girl.... But, there is more involved than just jumping out of the shower and going. Nuff said.
Ten of the many many things....

Ellie R.- uhhuh
Maddie-(too busy with makeup)
Ellie J.- Who is Alex?
Ry- If Gator keeps having accidents on your carpet, are we going to have to give him away too?
Gator-We going home mom?
Mom-No, we need to run to the store.
Gator- I gotta go potty at home!
Mom-Argh! No, did you go potty already? Lets go into the store. (PetsMart)
Gator- I go'in on the floor like the puppies?
Mom- NO, they have a potty for people too!
Ry to my 15 year old client- Are you going to get your nose waxed too?
Ry- I am pretty hungry, what is a healthy snack that I can have? Cheese puffs, cookies, Popsicles, or some of that candy?
(in my defense the cookies are the snackwells 100 cal grasshoppers, the Popsicles are sugar free, and the candy is sugar free butterscotch, but the cheese puffs are really cheese puffs...)
Mommy- Yeah Gator you did great, you are getting to be such a big boy. You are going to get to go see the Monster Trucks!!!!!
Gator-Yeah, Awesome! (come on, what two year old uses awesome, cool, and sweet in the right context?)

It is ONE tiny piece of broccoli. He gags on green veggies every time. I know I am a mean mommy because he is GOING to sit there until he has consumed the one veggie I put on his plate. This has been the routine lately. He won't finish and I make him. I am either ready to force feed or put him to bed hungry. This isn't a heart baby thing, thanks to my two little sisters I know that this is a two year old thing. I think one of my baby sis's only ate Ramon Noodles for three meals straight for three months. They didn't eat many veggies then and now they are pretty darn good eaters. My baby sis even wants to be a Chef when she is old enough. In the mean time, we will continue to introduce veggies and he will continue to eat what we are having for dinner. Who wouldn't like sweet meat balls over rice? Tomorrow we are having kabobs with eggplant and zucchini. It will be interesting to see how that goes over. I am not too too worried because he isn't going to find and fun foods around this joint. It's all diet food. Bleh. He will just have to go over and give eyes to our next door neighbor; Debbie Girl for some Cheetos or a cookie. Come on... So the other day I made roast beef dinner, complete with mashed potatoes and gravy. We had a ton of mashed potatoes left over, I didn't want to waste them and because cinnamon rolls made with mashed taters are a tiny bit better for you than donuts made with mashed taters I opted for those. I think it about evened out in the end with the super yummy cream cheese frosting. ANYWAY. I made the cinnamon rolls the next day and wanted to share them so that I wouldn't devour all of them myself. So we decided to run some next door. I had one more batch in the oven and Gator was up to the table (again) needing to finish his supper. He really wanted to come and help deliver them. So I told him that if he finished his dinner then he could come, if not he had to stay home and finish. He wasn't even close when the timer went off. So I strapped him a little tighter into his booster and off Ry and I went to drop off a couple plates of warm rolls. He screamed bloody-guts-murder.... Poor little boy. I could hear him standing on the porch next door. Granted it isn't far away but... SHEESH....
This is another one of those this too shall pass things, isn't it?

And this would be our newest family member.
She is now 11 weeks and is a female chi-terrier mix. I call her a chi-terr.... Or she could be a Terr-chi... Either way she is supposed to stay little. Which means little poops. As you can tell she is bout the size of a remote control. Ry got her for Christmas, although a little earlier then planned because on the day I went to get her the breeder was leaving to go out of town and I had no way of getting her home. We had no food for her, but I just thought she was so sweet so I let Ry bring her home. That night we decided to wait for daddy to come home so that we could have a family meeting to name her. Ry and I talked about names all day. I would write down the names that we both liked so that we could review them all at the meeting. When we finally sat together as a family, daddy wanted to make sure that Gator was feeling part of it so he turned and asked him. "What would you like to name the puppy?" without even a hesitation gator replied "Tractor"... So we wrote it down... It was hard to choose something suitable... After all, we had some awesome names... Daisy, Lollie, Hazel, Tractor, Zoey.... In the end I think we found the perfect name for little Lola... She hardly walks, Ry carries her constantly.
About three days after we got Lola, Christmas day, we took her with us to G-ma and G-pa's house. After opening all the gifts we were playing with toys when Gator started wrenching and gagging.... Worried that he might loose his brunch, daddy grabbed the nearest thing to "catch" it in... Gator spit out a little bit of brown gooooo... What??????? Daddy asked Gator "Why did you spit in there, What did you spit in there?" to that Gator said "I DON'T LIKE DOG FOOD!!!" ----Nuff said!
Gator is also just the right size for an attack of his diaper area... So we must watch that he doesn't run around without protection... The other day she managed to nip at him. He could have been injured, injured bad.
So now I am caught up on our family. I need to blog hop to all the others I have been meaning to read.
He couldn't even stand up on his own. He would fall over or slip and just lay there calling for help.
This too shall pass- I hope!
