Heard from the Girls

Heather, while camping: “Let’s have a conversation.  What’s your favorite food, drink, and, ummmmm, dinosaur? No wait, just dinosaur.”

Heather, while showering after camping:
“Ummm, Mom?  Dad?  Anybody out there except Corinne?!”
[Corinne’s interest is piqued and heads for the bathroom.]
“I need a washcloth!”
[Corinne wanders in, grabs a washcloth off the sink and tosses it into the tub.]
“Thanks Corinne.”
[Corinne wanders back to the TV Show she was watching.]

Corinne is confident in her identity if not her language skills:
“What’s your name?” — “I Kin!” [She’s missing ‘r’s]
“Are you a monkey?” — “No! I Kin!”
“Are you tired?” — “No! I Kin!”
“Are you my little girl?” — [Throws hands up in the air] “No! I big gul”
“You’re not a little baby?” — “No! I big!”
“You’re my big girl?” — “Uh huh”

These two are goofballs.

Corinne’s 2nd Birthday!

Corinne turned 2 yesterday.  The night before, she decided sleep was for the weak and stayed up 4 hours past her bedtime.  She was happy as could be, but she needed to be asleep.  The consequences were felt the next day.

Also, being St. Patrick’s Day, Heather had special activities at school and was totally worn out by the time she got home.  (She did not manage to catch any leprechauns either at home or at school.)

Corinne doesn’t seem to have a favorite food other than grabbers, so we tried Chick-fil-A for dinner.  She wasn’t interested in any of the food.  She did have fun wandering around the restaurant though.

So then it was home for presents and cake.  She very much enjoyed opening presents.

(FYI: If you know kids that like My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, seasons 1-3 are only $12 each on Amazon; which is not only reasonable, but a good price, especially for a kids’ show where the norm seems to be to gouge.)

But things went downhill when we started singing Happy Birthday.

And Heather was saddened by the whole thing too:

Corinne’s been sick on and off since Christmas.  This week she got her third ear-infection diagnosis in that time frame.  Hopefully her future birthdays are a little healthier and more enjoyable.
