Halloween quotes of the Day

One kid came to our door tonight with candy in his bucket and candy in his hand. As Gabby was opening the door to give candy to this precious kid, he says:

"Here's some for you, so it can be fair"

and hands Gabby the candy from his hand and then grabs some from our treat bucket!


Gabby was sitting by our front window waiting for more trick or treaters and says:

"Mommy, what can we do while we wait for more customers?"

Oh, the minds of the little ones!

Pumpkin Patch

We spent yesterday afternoon at the pumpkin patch. Picking pumpkins, riding the train, playing on the playground and just having great family time!

Date Night

Should I be so excited? Should I have butterflies?

I get to have a date with my hubby on Friday. Our first nanny is coming down to watch the kids. I think they are just as excited to see Jen as I am to have a date!

What do you do on a date?

Who's Reading?

It's been a few weeks since I put a sitemeter on my blog, just to see who's reading. There aren't but a select few who choose to comment on my posts and usually, they are family or close friends. So, I often think there aren't many who read my ramblings about things.
But tonight while grazing through pages of referring urls, I found a mom of 3 who actually links to me from her blog. I don't personally know this mom, but I'm sure she's wonderful!
I guess, you never know who's reading or how strangers find your blog.
If you're reading, keep checking back and let me know you've stopped by by leaving a comment. Would love to hear from you.

"Loose Toothes"

When I picked Gabby up from school today, she came running out of her class and was pointing to her mouth. I had no idea what she was doing until she got close enough for me to hear:

Gabby: "Mommy, I got 2 loose toothes"
Mommy: "You what? You've got 2 loose teeth?"
Gabby: "Yep. Everyone says to wiggle them alot with my tongue"
Mommy: "Why?"
Gabby: Because when they come out, I put them under my pillow when I go to sleep. And then when I wake up, the toothes will be gone and I'll have money there"
Mommy: "Who puts money under your pillow?"
Gabby: "Maaawwwmmm! The tooth fairy"

So, how much are "toothes" going for these days?

A little helper

Tonight while I was rocking Josh to sleep, Zack took his diaper and PJs to Gabby and asked her to help him get ready for bed. Next thing I knew, Zack came running into Josh's room, completely dressed and ready for bed.

Do you think she's working her way into my job? I can only hope.

He's Adorable!

Today, the kid's cousin "LittleZabba" came to visit along with Shasha. LittleZabba was playing with Zack. He was doing more irritating of her than actually playing with her. But as they were "playing" LittleZabba says:

"He's Adorable!"

Shasha and I look at each other and just shrug our shoulders.

Only family would think the person who was completely irritating you was adorable.

Parenting Advice

Tonight Zack decided to give me some pointers on parenting a 1 year old. Here's how it went.

Zack: Mommy, no fight Joshy.
Mommy: Don't fight with Joshy?
Zack: Yes Mommy, no fight Joshy.
Zack: You make Joshy happy. No yell.

Out of the mouths of babes.
