Groundhog Day

I had a Groundhog Day moment this evening, while starring at the tupperware cupboard strewn across the kitchen floor, following my daughter around the kitchen turning off Oven knobs, closing cupboards, changing yet another nappy, loading up the layers of PJ's, dosing my sick baby up with her antibiotics and some panadol and stepping over all the toys in the lounge room, it was just seeming all very mundane, then when I thought about some of the new and cute things she did today I know it makes it all worthwhile.

I got snotty cuddles this morning, gross but cute, she loves me lots more when she is sick, then she must have started to feel better because she danced to the Wiggles, so cute I hit the rewind button and played the song again so I could giggle and video while she danced again. This is just a few of the adorable moments we had today, so I do hope that it is Groundhog Day again tomorrow.

Mummy Daughter Day

Today was a very productive mummy daughter day, we had a relaxing morning hanging in PJ's Ella watching a repertoire of her favourite shows on Disney channel while I sat on the lounge editing and selecting some photos to print.

We headed of to Wollongong for some shopping my strategy was that she would fall asleep in the car on the drive and I would have a good hour of peaceful shopping. I didn't quite go to plan she was babbling talking to herself in the backseat. Today she finally learnt to answer a question properly.

Q: What is your name?

A: Ella

I have been working on this for a few weeks and she finally stopped calling herself "mummy". We have been practicing all day to make sure she has finally mastered it - SUCCESS.

Since she didn't fall asleep in the car I opted for Plan B, push her vigorously in the pram around the shops until she fell asleep, this took about 20 mins and conveniently happened right near Spotlight. So I had a glorious time cruising the crafting aisles for about an hour, spent a little bit and now have a barrage of little projects to do.

Once she woke up she was a little whingy and we shared a Milkshake and then headed to the Park for a play.

On the way home she was very drowsy so I put her to bed, yay, so this is where she still is.

She has some suprises when she wakes up, a parcel arrived today which I am guessing is the toys from me sending in the Barcodes from the Huggies pack and last weekend Nanny and Poppy found her this fabulous toy kitchen at the markets with lots of bits n pieces and today I added to it with a Pizza kit. I was laughing at the logo on this toy . . . . look familiar?

It is very fitting that I scrapped this layout this week and thought I would share it.
