Little of this, little of that

Right now, I am listening to Olivia pretend she is a cheerleader while watching High School Musical 2. Until now, I never thought in a million years that I would actually enjoy watching the disney channel. It's not my first choice of viewing but I can definitely tolerate it. Two of my favs are, of course Hannah Montana, then Wizards of Waverly Place. Crazy I know.

Olivia has been getting onto Katy tonight. It has been quite funny! Katy crawls over to the tv and starts banging on it (this one of Shawn's prized toys). Olivia immediately starts telling her NO! then she proceeds with moving her from it! While Katy is grunting (because she wants something and she is getting frustrated), Olivia starts telling her "don't make me come over there." Obviously she has heard that from somewhere!!

Is it awful of me to really (I mean REALLY) enjoy Mondays. Katy goes to mother's day out for just a few hours and Olivia is at school. The time from 9-2 is so peaceful! Katy is a great baby! And Olivia is, well Olivia. She is the kindest, sweetest, and most sensitive child. But she is a little girl! I never realized that the "sassiness" started so young. She dresses like Punky Brewster. For those of you that don't know who this is, then you are just too young! :) This morning she wore a pair of black leggings that were "cropped" with pink shorts over them. Her shoes were hot pink Hannah Montana crocs then she wore white socks folded down. Her shirt was pink and red striped with christmas presents on the front. Her clothing is not a battle that I choose to fight! I love her so much! (and her unique fashion sense)

I am going to work tomorrow. I am having to pick up a few extra shift because Shawn's hours got cut by 8 hours a week. Now, he is off one day each week. I am just so very thankful that he still has a job because there are millions of people that don't. Also I am very grateful that I have the type of job that I do. There will always be a need for nurses and overtime!

Well, Katy and I are finally getting over this sinsus stuff. We both still cough but nothing like last week. Now I need to go to get Olivia ready for bed!


  1. Hey girl! You should come to my house... Baylee and her sassiness are NON-STOP! It's hilarious though the things that they say. I just put a post up talking about what she said today!

    That's awful that Shawn had some hours cut. But, that's good that you can pick up extra hours. I need to get around to going to nursing school... I would so love it! My neighbor is a nurse and she works 1 day a week!

    Blair is getting close to crawling. Her poor belly just gets in the way! It's awful!

    Glad to see you guys are doing good! Hugs - Tiff

  2. Oh that poor baby!!! I am sure that she will find a way to get around. She might just skip the crawling and go straight for the walking!

    The sassiness used to be cute but now it is ridiculus (I don't think I spelled that right). I think that they pick so much up at school! But I do just have to laugh at her sometimes!! XOXO
