I hope Santa Wasn't Watching....

Hmmm...when your Mom is busy making sixty homemade sugar cookies for the kindergarten Christmas party, what is any two year old girl to do???

Let's see, she could play with the stickers that Mommy gave her, or drink her sippy, or look at her books, or watch her Rudolph movie that Mommy so strategically planned...Nope that wouldn't be any fun...

Instead said two year old will push the bar stool up to the fridge and throw off all the magnets...climb up to the island and take a bite out of EVERY APPLE in the darn bowl...unhook the video camera from it's charger and string it across the living room, and then proceed to suck on every Skittle in a package until the color comes off and then spit them out on the table until they look like gobs of...well I don't' know what but it's nasty...

It took 3 hours to do a 30 minute job because I kept having to retrieve small fry off of kitchen furniture. All the while with her screaming and saying, "Mama!!!I help!!!!!"

What helped matters is that when I am elbow deep in cookie dough the phone rings and it's her darling Daddy...who apparently had no other purpose in calling me but to laugh!

After the cookies were safely tucked away in the container I dropped them off a school and then made a run to Smiths Grove for some chicken nuggets which Lilly begged for... she took one bite and promptly fell asleep since she was victorious in her McDonald's pleading and begging I guess

Oh well, little Diva is now sound asleep in her crib after the morning excitement...so Mommy is off to wash the dishes and clean up the skittle and apple debris... Then maybe...just maybe I'll take a shower!

I could actually see all this happening as I was reading it. Sounds like a night around our house sometimes. Memories in the making:o)

Sorry, I know it was not funny to you at the time, but it was funny reading about it!

lol-that is the joys of motherhood. What a precious family. I was just googling some geneology stuff and stumbled across your blog. Nice site!
I am a Parsley (by marriage) too.
Keep up the good work as a mom and your eyes on Jesus and all will be well. :)
Much love,
