January 10, 2013 ~ The Pee Game

Won't you play the Pee Game with me?

Here's how it goes:

Your parents dress you up all nice and cute to take you out to dinner with family. You notice that they forgot to bring the diaper bag. Bingo! Time to do your worst.

First, sucker the adults into ordering a huge glass of milk. Try and make sure the amount of milk exceeds the size of your bladder. It's even easier to sucker the adults if Mommy is running late and isn't there yet.

Drink the entire glass all at once.

Then pee all over yourself!

This ensures that they are stuck without clothes and still having to pay for the drinks.

Act uncomfortable so they feel guilty. Daddy will surely run across the street and buy you some new clothes so that everyone can eat their dinner in peace and harmony.

Luckily for you, you're full from the milk so you won't have to worry about eating your dinner. This will give you plenty of time to run amok all over the restaurant in pee-soaked clothes waiting for Daddy to come back with $50 worth of a new outfit.

Then, Daddy will show up and change you. Don't be alarmed!

When you get back to the table ask for water. Then ask Mommy to take you to the potty. The water will not have worked any magic yet so you'll be empty. That's where you fool them.

In no time you will will need to pee. Wait until dessert is ordered and let fly.

This is how you win the Pee Game!

January 8, 2012 ~ Mom, Mommy, Mom, Mom!

I used to think this little scene was one of the most annoying things I had ever seen. As it turns out, it's not just funny annoying, it's reality annoying.

Substitute laying on the bed with attempting to make dinner and this was how the evening went:

January 7, 2013 ~ Song List

So, in the beginning of December Billy was having trouble sleeping so I started singing Christmas carols to him and rocking him at night- only for about 5 minutes, but it's enough to calm him down and not have fights at bedtime. Poor guy, I can't carry a tune in a bucket.

But now he keeps asking me to "sing the baby Jesus songs".

I'm totally sick of Christmas carols but he still wants me to sing to him. I need to come up with a new song list quick! They need to be kid friendly songs that I can remember when I'm halfway to bed myself and totally zonked.

His current favorite is Barbara Anne by the Beach Boys. He was singing it to himself this morning, even. We also do Animal Crackers in my Soup and Lolliop.

I have no idea what I'm going to sing to him, but I have to come up with something quick to get him off of the Christmas kick!

January 6, 2013 ~ My Little Knitter

I have been crocheting up a storm and Billy wants to help. Here he is playing with a bunch of the things I have made. The green bear his his, but everything else is for other children. Billy really wants me to make a hat for him, but more importantly, Billy really wants to make a hat by himself.

Now, I'd love to teach him how to do it, but I'm thinking he might be just a tad on the young side for the manual dexterity. And here's how he counts: "one, two, four, nine, ten, four, five, eleven, twelve, fourteen, nineteen, twenty!" Definitely not read for stitch counts yet.

But I can't get him to leave my hooks or yarn alone. I have to put them away when he's awake because he wants to "Mommy, I do it mah-self."

The Sunday Post ~ Melissa & Doug Stir Fry Review

Can someone please explain to me why you can buy kids toy cooking playsets and kids toy foods, but none of the food are the kind you cook?

Billy wants to pretend play cooking. Well, I guess you could fry that plastic banana, but Mommy doesn't do it in real life. I did find a grilling set of food, and bought him that.

And that brings me to this stir fry set.

The pieces of food velcro together to Billy can practice cutting up the food before throwing it in the wok. Then he gets to stir fry it up. And when he's done, the set comes with chopsticks with velcro on them to help the child learn how to use chopsticks.

Billy loves this playset. It looks like real food you would cook. And healthy food too. Beef, shrimp, red pepper, mushrooms, snap peas and bok choy.

For a child wanting to pretend cook, this is a fabulous playset. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

Buy it here.
