Dance like nobody’s watching

How’s that saying go?  Apparently Nina knows it:

Makes me laugh every time

When my little girl confidently belts out:

Nina toes
Nina toes

Nina toes
Nina toes

And eyes
And ears
And mouth
And nose

Nina toes!

(and if you don’t know the song – where have you been? – it’s supposed to be ‘knees and toes’…)

Love it!

This week’s chocolate fix: Kit Kat DARK

I was in Vancouver this week and loaded up at duty free. Why is there so much better chocolate outside the US? Or am I missing it and KIt Kat Noir exists here too? In any case, YUM.

Note: just because I haven’t posted a chocolate fix in a while, doesn’t mean I’ve been chocolate-free all in between…

The Score is 1-1

While the world watches the World Cup, here in the Mathelus household, we are keeping one eye on the Bowl Games. The toilet bowl games, that is. And the score is currently tied: Poop 1, Pee 1.

Yes, she’s only 21 months old. And before you say anything about rushing things, pushing the child before she’s ready, I’ll have you know that all of these discussions have already been had.

However, who am I to deny the child that follows me into the bathroom in the morning after we wake saying, “Mommy, pee pee potty…” ?

We’re proud and doing what we can. It’s exciting to see this little girl grow up. And in the end, we’re all winners for less diaper changes and more independence!

And here is the trophy:

(no, I’m not the type of mom to commemorate this occasion with a photo. But you get the picture.)

First full sentence!







(She said it as robotic as this reads. Probably because we taught her to say this sentence one. Halting. Word. At. A. Time. But, WOW!)
