Momma's Little Helper...

I had to make bread Wednesday, because there wasn't a crumb left in the house. As usual, Baby Dragon #1 wanted to see what I was doing, so I sat him up on a bar stool to watch. Being a rather active little boy he wasn't content to sit and watch for long, so I wrapped him up in an apron and put him to work stirring the dry ingredients...

...and yes, most of the flour did stay in the bowl!

Advice from a mother of two....

The giggles of a toddler are precious and to be cherished. However, do not make the mistake of failing to know exactly WHAT it is that they are giggling about!

I give you Exhibit A:

I was in the kitchen making a dessert for tonight & heard Baby Dragon #1 giggling hysterically. Since I had heard his pattering feet just minutes before, I assumed he was entertaining himself by running back & forth in front of the TV, laughing at his reflection (he does this at least twice a day).

Was I ever wrong..... Apparently he thought that black bear needed a blanket of tissues....... Argh! Next time I'll find out what he's laughing about sooner!!

News for those with kids....

The cat saga continues...

Yesterday Little Miss started sympathy crying for the danged cats! Apparently their yowling sounded enough like human crying that she thought she needed to join in for sympathy sake.... O.O

CatS?! Oh yes, there are THREE of them--apparently acquaintances--who sometimes hang out under the house... occasionally yowling at each other. Cat turf wars under my house and a sympathetic baby. What next?!

I hate cats!

Before you cat lovers rush to hang me, let me assure you that I had a cat while growing up & loved her dearly. Tiger was a great cat. But now we have a neighborhood stray who seems to have taken up residence under our house. (Apparently there's cat-sized access to our crawl space.) Hubby and I thought this would be great at first, as a stray cat will usually help keep the mouse population down.

However, THIS stray has the annoying habit of meowing LOUDLY... loudly enough to wake me up from a sound sleep in the middle of the night. Even more annoying?? The cat sounds freakishly like our 3mo baby girl.

So last night (this morning) about 3am I wake from a sound sleep, hearing Little Miss whining in her crib. Since she always sleeps through the night, I went hurling from our bed to go see what was her grief before she woke up her brother (aka BD#1). When I get in their room, I find they're both sound asleep, but the sound that woke me is now easily recognized as a CAT rather than a baby.

Dang cat!! *grumbles* I'd kick it if I could get to it..... :-D
