As a parent of a toddler who is constantly in “entertainment” mode, I wish I could capture each and every single moment but that just isn’t possible. This blog along with Facebook and Instagram have certainly helped but I must say, this weekend was chock full of Abbyisms that I need to record now! Don’t want to forget…..Don’t want to forget…..Don’t want to forget! So here goes a few of my favorites even though this doesn’t cover even half of the moments. Pshhh.. if only TLC would recognize the disfunctional talent my family has and start taping us for our own reality show already. C’mon TLC, we are way more entertaining than Kate Gosselin.
As Abbey, George and I were playing in our very empty basement she decides that she no longer wants to play and instead she wants to watch “Mickey Mouse Cub House.” And so she hops up on the couch and starts saying over and over “Mickey Mouse Cub House.” As a mom who wants to limit the TV time, I said no and told her she needed to come off the couch to play with mommy and daddy. She didn’t like my answer and decided to tell me again “Mickey Mouse Cub House Mommy.” At this point George had to cover his face so she wouldn’t see him laughing while I was disciplining. Abbey then shouted to George, “Daddy, I see you!” And then we were done, the laughing from the both of us was uncontrollable at that point. Although, we didn’t watch the show but did play. Mommy/Daddy 1 – Abbey 0
Goofing around on Sunday morning after Abbey had woken up and still had her binky in her mouth (we are on a limit of naps and bedtime only as we further attempt to wean her from her binky time) and she had been snuggling with mommy and daddy. She pulled up my shirt and shared her binky with Squishy. Of course she thinks Squishy lives in my belly button and attempts to push the binky in my belly button or she will try to tickle Squishy and basically shoves her finger in my belly button. Awww sibling love!
After taking Ab to the zoo for some Abbey and Mommy time (which we had a BLAST), we were getting in the car and Ab said to me, “I have fun momma.” Serious heart melter! I need to remember these sweet moments when she is sitting at the dinner table crying for 20 minutes over the last bite of food I want her to eat! That is a whole different story with the bottom line of mommy and daddy winning so I guess the score is now Mommy and Daddy 2 – Abbey 0. OH trust me friends, she wins a LOT! Did you see my Facebook post about the $9.00 pumpkins for her and Bubby? Yea, there was a lot of “Pease Momma” going on that day!
Coming home from a fun day Sunday of a couple miles in the Loveland bike trail (11.5 which is damn good for a prego) and dinner at The Works (not good by the way) we were in the car trying to keep Abbey awake. It was only 7:00pm and I wanted to make sure she got a bath when she got home and didn’t want her to fall asleep just to wake her up because she never would have gone down at descent time. So Abbey and I were bantering back and forth and I would yell back to her in a funny voice, “NO SLEEPING!” and she would yell it back to me and giggle. But one time after I yelled the “NO SLEEPING” she muttered under her breath, “Oh god.” Umm what? I had to correct her with, you mean “gosh.” Where does she learn this… ahem, George, I mean, I dunno.
