I am not a fan...
So far, we all got sick. So far, we are all still coughing and Mommy- despite her job requiring full days complete with toddler activities, multiple toddler snack preparations, chasing, carrying, princess castles, playing doctor, grocery shopping, errands, baking at request of toddler, preparing meals for the whole family, bath time, story time, bedtime and sit-by-the-bed-until-someone-falls-asleep-time- is still not feeling that great.
Thank you, at least, for not being the year of zero naps (she is napping now).
We have had some fun in the past couple weeks: sledding, meeting a new baby, a 2nd birthday party, and lots of toddler outings. But it has also been either -13 degrees or miserably chilly and rainy for the better part of the last two weeks. Pair that with not feeling well, and we've had a LOOOOOOONG two weeks of playing inside.
I don't have photos. So far 2014 has been relatively photo-less. But really, the dreary weather makes for unappealing indoor photos. And even if the sun is out, I feel less apt to pull out the camera to take spontaneous photos of MiniM.E. if her nose is running into her mouth or her finger is stuck up it....
BUT, I have to say, MiniM.E. has been a trooper. We've had days where I was thinking of bedtime at 9:30am... but she has been, for the most part, content. And of course adorable. And the things that come out of her mouth never cease to put a smile on my face.
This morning, Bob is drinking his coffee, MiniM.E. wants to play doctor and she has Chicka Chicka Boom Boom playing on the TV.
"Daddy, come play doctor with me!"
Daddy: "MiniM.E., come sit and eat your breakfast and watch your show. Daddy has to finish his coffee first."
"It's okay Daddy," (pulling on arm) "you can come slowly (which means carefully) with your coffee over here to play doctor. Then after we doctor dolly you can come back here and watch your show."
(MiniM.E. won, Daddy played doctor. How can you say no to that?)
Today we were driving to gymnastics and passed Wal-Mart. I said, "Almost there, it's just past Wal-Mart."
"Wal-Mart? Is that the Wal-Mart there? Is that where walruses live?"
I told her she was being silly, walruses don't live at Wal-Mart.
"Toy walruses, Mommy."
So that has been our 2014 so far. It's got to get better from here! Just wanted to post something... even if it is photo-less...
