Cute! Cute! Cute!

Hoo nelly! I sure would like one of these (from here) for Hannah.

Actually, Hannah has that EXACT dress. I think that may be a sign. She is meant to win that baby sling. :)

All By Myself

You know, there are big romantic gestures, fancy trips, jewelery, rose petals on beds, all kinds of jazz like that. But there comes a time in every woman's life when nothing says romance like some time alone.

That was my Valentine's present from Glen this year. A card that said I could have a kid-free evening, supper, movie, and snacks included. He knows me well.

So I picked last night. (Survivor night! Yesssssssssss.) This is how it started:

What's cuter than that? Not much I think. Smooth move Glen.

Then he picked up appetizers from BP's for supper/snack. And he left. With the children. And so began 2.5 happy hours spent with no chance of anyone bugging me. It looked like this:


(Glen took the kids to McDonald's. And then, because they still had some time to kill, they sat in the van in the parking lot at Walmart and watched some Backyardigans. lol. Nice.)

Anyways... It. Was. Perfect.

Why No Post?

Because. Hannah spilt Pepsi all over the table my laptop was sitting on. That's why. (That's the second time she's done that with Pepsi. And then there was once with just plain water. I told Glen we should have gotten the fancy insurance that covers spills.)

In other, completely unrelated news, I've decided to give up Pepsi. For two reasons. One is that I have the worst heartburn all the time, and it took till a few days ago for me to think, "I wonder if the two cans of Pepsi I drink every day may be contributing to this?" Dur. The other reason is that Mikey has always bugged me about how unhealthy diet drinks are, (I only drink diet Pepsi) and tells me I should quit drinking them. My response has always been that smoking is unhealthy, and that usually ends the conversation. Of course, now that he's quitting smoking I will no longer have that awesome comeback ready and waiting so it seems easier to just quit. :)

In other, also completely unrelated news, Hannah is obviously planning on hitting the "terrible twos" running. (I've never called them the terrible twos myself. I love twos.) Yesterday evening is a perfect example of some of the new material she's been working into her act. I had some Smarties to give her, and told her she needed to say please. She cried. And fought to get the Smarties herself. And screamed. And fell on the ground. I said over and over, "Say please Hannah. Say please!" More crying. Finally, she had enough and decided to ditch me (probably because I was laughing at her) and went upstairs to Ben and Sam's room. At this point it occurred to me, 'Why am I not filming this?" So, obviously, I filmed it.
