Eating my words

I was thinking today about some of the things that I said I'd never do as a mom and I thought, heck, why not just get them out there for America to read. So America (cause all of America reads this obviously), here's me, eating my words:
- I said I'd never stick Savannah in front of the TV or a movie just so I could take a shower. I read something while I was pregnant about someone doing that and thought it to be unsafe, and also bad for the kid's development. Sometimes I bring the portable DVD player in the bathroom, set it up on the toilet seat and let Sav watch Elmo while I take a shower.

- I said I wouldn't feed my kid chicken nuggets or Mac and Cheese for lunch. I mean, come on, what kind of mom can't at least make a sandwich for their kid? Yep, we both had both for lunch last week. And I'll add to it that Savannah has a (turkey) hot dog for dinner 5 out of 7 nights a week.

- I said I wouldn't dress my kid in pink all the time, or hardly ever. I thought it was too much. You can take a look at her on any given day to see that I went back on this one pretty quick.

- I said I wouldn't let her have candy until she was 3ish. Not good for her teeth and she'd never know the difference if she never had it. She gets a dum dum every time I need to go into a store. It's kind of become a kind of embarrassing habit. As soon as we get in any store she starts digging in my pockets "suuka? Suuka?".

So there's the short list. What did I know then anyway?

Here's SAvannah playing with my friend Amanda's daughter Bella. A lady at Fareway asked me if we were related to them today because the girls look so much the same.

From your daughter

Dear Daddy,
I know you miss me why you're at work so I thought I'd write a blog for you about all the things you might be missing about me:
- My newest obsession, Nutella. And that I call it poo poo and then eat it.
- That I can EEEE AWE like a donkey now thanks to you.
- I finally can say "Love You" back... if I want to.
- I licked all the peanut butter off my bananas today and didn't eat any of the banana. (sounds like something you would do, huh pops?)
- I can't wait for you to come home!
Here are some pictures I asked mommy to take for you:

I'm gonna get my face through one of these days...

Mommy interrupted me while I was watching Elmo the other morning. Sheesh mom!
We didn't tell you about this yet, but I've been getting stuck on the table sometimes. My feet couldn't reach the chair. I mean, why do you guys make it so hard for me to get up there anyway!
See you tonight!

Terriblew Twos or Sick Sweetheart?

Savannah has been super gumpy the last couple days. I'm not sure what to make of it. She's been fussy all the time and throwing fits over every single little thing. She's been crying, whinning, and pounding her fists on the floor more than I've ever before. I would say she's not feeling well, but there are no signs of sickness that I can see.

So I'm stuck trying to figure out if I should discipline her or love on her more. Ah! Sometimes.....
