I’m not sure if you knew this or not but I happen to lead a very glamorous life. My days are pretty much filled to the brim. Especially now that I’m acting as official wardrobe consultant, premier pasta chef, boo-boo kisser, and tantrum tamer to a very short and sometimes very demanding little person. I know everyone is deperate to know what exactly we do with our days round these parts… So I’ll fill you in on some of the dirty details. Please try not to be too jealous.
first up laundry. i feel like i do a lot of laundry considering a) we’re just a family of three and b) lex has enough clothes to last her 4 months without re-wearing anything. but when someone insists on wearing buzz lightyear pi’s 4x a week into the washing machine they must go.
lemonade taste tester. one day at school lex made lemonade with her class. i’m hoping it was a riveting lecture she’ll remember forever about life handing you lemons and making lemonade. regardless it’s a new favorite pastime around here. picking lemons, squeezing lemons, and then trying to add enough sugar and water to make it sorta, kinda, a little bit edible.
cruise director. sometimes things get boring around here. nothing like taking lex and mean kitty to the car wash for a little good old fashioned entertainment. other riveting entertainment options involve searching the streets for trash trucks and organizing the pantry.
ice cream connoisseur. sometimes (or when your two) decisions are impossible. how are you supposed to choose what ice cream you want when you haven’t even tried “mommy’s ice cream” flavor? enter ice cream taste testing. and for the record mommy’s ice cream won- because sea salt carmel talenti trumps all.
i also have the pleasure of being master hairstylist, shopping cart driver, temporary tattoo artist, mermaid chalk-drawing expert, and I’ve perfected the art of placing bandaids on imaginary boo-boos. it’s all in a days work my friends.
see. toddler life is seriously glamorous. and never, ever, boring.
