All blondes are not the same


Tonight Sophia pointed to a photograph of the gorgeous Kate Winslet and excitedly squealed, “Mommy!”
Wow. Getting compared to Kate Winslet. Thanks, baby girl! Although, yesterday she pointed to a cartoon Alice in Wonderland and said the same thing. So, um, I guess I can’t get too excited about the compliment.

Who needs a spoonful of sugar?


I think it’s safe to say that Sophia LOVES medicine. I have had to point out to her on numerous occasions that, contrary to what her taste buds are telling her, the liquid she is swallowing is not, in fact, candy. To her, the prescription she is on right now for her ear infection […]

Watching which crayon will be the color of choice for the […]

Sweet Child of Elmo


Tonight, Chris turned on some 80s music after dinner while Sophia was playing (classic Chris, I know). It was pretty much the good stuff for the most part — OMD, Erasure, A-Ha.
