I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep

10 minutes turned wrong

Getting your 11 month old to sit still for one lousy picture is a test of patience and stamina that I just didn't have yesterday. So instead I let her take me on a little tour of the house and I snapped as I followed.  We hit all her favorite spots...

We started at the windows, but there was nothing to see.

We took her doll for a quick stroll, but Lady Bug deemed that activity silly and evicted her from the stroller.

So we headed off to the bathroom 
because there's always a toilet to flush.

and putting big brother's underwear on your head is .... just gross ::blech:: 
(I swear it's clean)

And a little brotherly love....

That turned into...

::Ladybug wailing::

Me:  June Bug, what happened?

June Bug:  I hit baby Lady Bug in the face. 

Me: WHY????!

June Bug:: ::blank stare that pretty much said why not??::

Awesome. Her first black eye.
::it's almost the weekend...
it's almost the weekend::

and repeat


  1. Oh ouch!! He really did hit her! You gotta love the sibling love....Brianna sometimes "bumps" Katelyn a bit harder than necessary-ha ha! I have to remind her that she could really hurt her if she hits a table or piece of furniture in the house.

    1. he did :( it wasn't our finest moment around here. Luckily it doesn't look too bad today. It's nice that you can "reason" with B. Not that it always helps, I'm sure :)

  2. I'm looking forward to Xavy discovering the toilet!

    Sorry to hear about Lady Bug's black eye. :(

    1. K was never into the toilet. It was just never a source of fascination...E, yeah, she loves it!
