the moe-mas

haven's oma and grandad came to visit for easter-- she calls them both 'moe-ma' most of the time. we had a great time doing a lot of nothing, eating cake, jumping at hopscotch, watching princess and the frog, coloring in jumbo books, and swimming at the moe-mas hotel pool!

the queen mother

haven came downstairs from her nap with her easter dress in tow. she's been asking to wear it for a couple days now. it's a princess dress of course. (*who teaches little girls to be princesses by the way? love it) so, in a world where she hears 'no' so many more times than 'yes' -- we went with her plans. over the top of her existing outfit no less. to play in the dirt. because, really-- what else is a princess to do in her beautiful gown? :)

ps- please excuse our hair style--we're in between do's today.

lost in translation

tonight at dinner i explained to hae that we were having 'hot soup' for dinner. be careful. blow. it's hot.

she responded, 'mmmmmmm, rat poop'. with gusto. no sarcasm. she's two. and jon's out of town.

oh dear. it was as clear as a bell.

here are my options...
A- our two year old who parrots everything we say stumbled on a couple consonants
B- our kiddo enjoys delicacies i know nothing of
C- my cooking has gotten even worse, this is highly unlikely as there's not much room for anything but improvement, but there's always the surprise dinner that reinvents the meaning of 'worst of the worst'.

i'm crossing my fingers for A, but fearful for C
aye, oh.

here's hoping your dinner was better than ours tonight, but filled with just as many giggles! :)
