It is a good thing I'm Mormon, otherwise this child would have driven me to drink.

My daughter is what a lot of people might call....crazy. She is absolutely driving me nuts lately (lately, like since she was born) and my patience has just about had it. But, instead of perusing the "Nannies for Hire" pages, or crying into a pillow (already did that once this morning) I will focus on her good points and mention of few of the cute Lydia moments from last week. (I am writing this on Monday. It has already been the longest week ever.)

Rainy days mean big breakfast days. We have a little mommy-daughter chat over soy sausage, egg beaters and fruit. Yum. Sometimes Lydia can be great company. Can you imagine waking up with hair like that?


We were playing chutes and ladders on the floor and Lydia's piece landed on a "naughty square". Instead of sending her piece down the chute, she decided both pieces needed a time out.

Now that it is spring, I am always getting special little flowers, picked by Lydia. Or at least the heads of flowers. Ignore the nail polish. I read that this season, coral was the color and that anyone can pull it off. Not true.


I asked Lydia to go get dressed and she came down like this. She was a bride of course.

Thanks to Shane for bringing me home a dinner made up of two king size chocolate bars and a 44 ounce soda, and thanks to Rachel for the fantastic "Swap Package". Had it not been for both of your efforts, I probably would have called my doctor for a Xanax prescription by now.

Winner!

The winner of the Rock City/Ruby Falls giveaway is Beth. Congrats! Don't forget to enter the Dollywood Giveaway. Ends Thursday at midnight.

Aww, she is such a cutie! I cannot even wear nail polish. I swear it makes my fingers look super fat. Probably all psychological, but aren't most things that run through a woman's mind ;)

I hear you Natalie! I have had one of those weeks with kids and it's only Tuesday! I was in tears tonight too! Oh how I love them and I still want lots more! ;-)

Have a good night Natalie!

P.S. I'm so glad you loved my blog swap package!! I sent my camera away to be fixed only to have Canon send it back WITHOUT the battery! Hmmpff so I won't let myself unpack your package until the camera is working again!

That's hilarious that they got a time out instead of going down the chute. ha!

BTW, how is the soy sausage? I'm a vegetarian and have wanted to try soy sausage for years but it scares me. LOL

I am not a huge fan of the soy sausage, but Lydia LOVES it. If you aren't used to meat, I bet you would like it. It is pretty close to the real thing and really easy to make. (60 seconds in the microwave.)

It is nice to know we are not alone on this journey of motherhood! It is amazing how precious they are and yet how trying they can be on our patience! Hang in there.

Is it really being Mormon that is holding you back. If it weren't for their cuteness coming out at just the right moments, I would go nuts. What am I saying, I am nuts!
