last night my son had a tantrum because he threw his lion (which he uses for bedtime) across the room, and i told him that he had to get it, but of course he wanted me to get. i am not his dog. well after about 15 minutes of crying and screaming he got it and then proceeded to tell me that he wanted his daddy to sing him songs (which i usually do), that he was mad at me, and for me to go away.

don't worry, as the posts above, and my friends can attest to with my son, you are NOT alone. we just need to get used to the fact that are children are not "average" as your sister said. the only time i can get parker to sit for a meal is when i make chocolate chip pancakes, then he shoves them all in his mouth in 2 minutes flat and declares "i'm done" and is off. my friends (who have toddlers the same age) always have that look of horror on their faces when we try to eat a meal with them and their kid. their kid is sitting there staring at mine like "what the fuck is wrong with parker?!"
my son recently started not napping on weekends. so i make him play in his room and i take a nap on the couch.

ps. that thing is awesome! i hope i win! i am a fan already and am a fan of oreck on fb now! and i don't tweet, but i did put the tweet message on my fb wall, does that count?
oh the never ending question men have in the bedroom, "when should i turn it on, and what speed should i use?" "set it on automode and it does the thinking for you" isn't that ironic? i know something else that comes on automode and does the thinking for the man :)
wow! that's amazing! great job! i still can't figure out how you have the time to do this kind of stuff and blog on another site, AND have a full time job, AND a 2 year old!

'how a dinosaur says good night' and 'old bear and his cub', and 'all kinds of families' are a couple of my, and parker's favorites.
Hurray! Ariel (one of the sisters of Mimosa) is a friend of mine! Buy her cute cute clothes and prints! oh, and the mother wedding story is the worst!
purr, purr, t-minus 3 seconds i am going to take this kid out with a swipe to the jugular!

i will say the same for boys though, i let my son get things that are traditionally girl things. for example, his winter coat, i held up a blue one and a pink one, he picked the pink. we got the pink. he loves it. pull-ups, held up the cars package and the princess package, he exclaimed "PRINCESS, YAY!!!" but then he loves cars, trucks, dinosaurs etc too, i think allowing kids to play with what they want and will make them happy is fine. i give my son tons of options, baby dolls, pink, (he wanted to paint his room purple, so we did), cars, trains, all of it, and to see the joy and excitement on his face is worth it. f@$k the lady at target who said he was a girl because of his pink coat, he loves it!

really great video! i need to do one of parker, although i think it would just annoy everyone, cause everything that comes out of his mouth is a question, why, etc. he is a why kid. but Mazzy is ADORABLE!

it was close for me between zalie and maggie. but i had to go with the anger and determination of zalie in the end :) ps. i really want to try one of these crumbs cakes!
i personally like the not so standard pics for holiday cards, so i would pick the one where you two are swinging mazzy and she is in the air. love that one. i also love the one of her running without you guys in it, and it looks like she is in mid-air. good luck! i do like the suggestion of the more than one photo for the holiday card. but for the grandparents, i am sure they would like a more traditional photo and i like the one of you guys crouching down the best for that (everyone looking and smiling).
You can probably wait, although we got one so P got used to wearing it, and knew that whenever he was on his bike he had to wear a helmet to be safe. Now he let's us know when he sees someone "not being safe" on a bike! Plus, I know how much you love Elmo, and he always has his helmet on when riding his trike :)

B: "I TOLD you I could aim and spray in your face from across the tub! Now get back down here, I want to do it again" T: "Don't talk to me, I'm getting out. That was NOT funny!"

i did a farm theme for parker's 1st birthday, he wore overalls and all. made a barn cake and animal cupcakes. getting the icing red and not pink was a challenge for me....2nd birthday did an easy thing, rented a room at the local indoor pool that has this really cool play structure in 1 foot of water, so it was a pool party. the room came with a ben and jerry's cake and everyone had a great time swimming and splashing! i am actually considering it for the next 5 birthday's cause it was so easy, and i didn't do a thing but decorate the room with balloons!
you can probably order one online from amazon or something.
i take it back, i want to be entered to win, i could use some free diapers to give to my friends as gifts who are having/had babies recently! see my comment and bonus video above! :)
