Free the Monkey

I hear my daughter screaming "MOOOOMMMY!" from her playroom sounding like she's in a panic so I rush to her side to find this:

a 1/2" plastic monkey shoved into her baby doll's bottle.

Really, little girl? I thought she had fallen off of something and broken a leg.

Then, of course, she NEEDS me to free the little plastic guy. So off I go to get the tweezers to free him.

She was so pleased. I was her hero for at least 30 minutes.

semi sweet tooth

yesterday a friend of ours invited us and a few other toddlers to her house for a fun afternoon activity. she had prepared a kitchen full of halloween cookies for the kids to decorate as they wished. sugar cookies + frosting + sprinkles galore = MESS!!!

although most children delight in the idea of eating sugary treats, my daughter would rather play with babies. i finally got her to the cookie decorating table and enticed her into creating a design of her own. lots of black sprinkles and chocolate frosting and i got the following picture.

she only ate half and decided she was done.

just starting

so a few friends of mine have a blog, and though i still don't get the meaning, i thought i would try to get going on one of my own.

since i'm a stay at home mom with a 2 year old and a baby on the way i thought i needed to add one more challenge to my weekly routine.

i hope to post something atleast once a week so that family and friends can stay up to date on the goings on of the breton family, but i'm not promising anything.

here goes...
