Top Five Saturday Laughs :: 2.2.13

It's hard to believe this is only my second post of 2013!  I set a long list of goals for this year.  In my quest to become more healthy, get our house better organized and spend more time unplugged as a family, my blogging has become non-existent.  This being said, I am glad to be at the keyboard to write some of our laughs from the past month.

5.  The girls are still crazy obsessed with Brave.  Natalie asks for Mmmmm-Duh by name.  It cracks me up every time.

4.  We were putting up some new blinds.  Claire was asking her favorite question, "Why?"  Ryan explained that we needed to be able to close the blinds for privacy.  That night after bath, Claire informed me she needed her underwear on immediately so no one saw her "privacy".

3.  Natalie has started going on the potty when she feels like it's time.  The girl is stubborn!  So if she poops in her diaper, she will waddle out of her hiding spot, point at her diaper and say "poo-poo".  If we don't get to her in time, she goes into the bathroom and takes the diaper off herself.  Needless to say, we watch for that indicator!

2.  We were having a dance party where Claire was really getting into the music.  She was shaking her booty and just having a ball.  When I told her how much I liked her dancing, she responded with, "My daddy taught me how to dance!"  This was especially hysterical since Ryan does the dance move from the movie Hitch - keep it in the frame.

1.  Natalie often calls animals by their sound rather than their actual name.  Claire has picked up on this.  She saw Natalie's stuffed owl under the couch, got super excited and yelled, "I see Natalie's who-who!!"  I laughed so hard I cried.

I am glad to be linking up with my friends at The Mommyhood Chronicle's blog hop.  It's a great place to find some really funny posts!

Top Five Saturday Laughs :: 1.5.13

It has been over a month since I blogged (ugh!).   I have so much to share, the entire Christmas season and my goals for 2013 (this is the first year I've actually written them down!).  However, I decided to start 2013 with my favorite posts to write - our laughs!!  It is good for me to write these down so I actually can look back and remember all the silly things my girls have done.  Even in the same week I am now having a hard time recalling these precious memories.

This is a compilation of laughs from the last month.

5.  If I have to go potty, the feeling intensifies exponentially as I get closer to the bathroom.  One day I had to go pretty bad and was rushing to get the girls in from the car.  Claire was blocking the door into the house and then blocked my path to the bathroom.  In my high pitched, rushed voice I told her, "Excuse me honey mommy has to go potty!!"  As I moved past her, she exclaimed, "Mom, you can't hold it very long."  I couldn't laugh or I would have peed my pants!  If you only knew Claire!!

4.  When Natalie goes to bed, Claire gives her a hug and kiss goodnight.  Most of the time Natalie offers up a cheek for Claire to kiss and gives a side hug.  Lately, she thinks it's funny to run away from Claire.  This leads to Claire chasing after her yelling, "Come back her little baby (or sister), I'm trying to kiss you!"

3.  This story came from Miss Cynthia before Christmas vacation.  Claire and her friend Lilian often have pretend adventures.  On this particular day, they couldn't decide what they wanted to do.  Claire wanted to go to the woods and hunt for deer and bears (we've been addicted to Brave) and Lilian wanted to go to the store for new shoes.  I guess they finally compromised and Lilian was going shopping with Claire joining her after the hunt.

2.  I may or may not have let a noisy toot after dinner one evening.  The girls both started giggling like crazy.  Natalie then said, "Mama poo-poo!"  Of course this lead to hysterical laughing from the entire family.

1.  Every night before bed, Claire and I say prayers together.  She picks someone she is thankful for and prays for them.  She was saying her standard, I am thankful for mommy because she give me kisses and cuddles and takes care of me and reads books.  Then she added, "I pray that she can have a vacation day tomorrow so we can play together all day."  I died of sweet and wanted so badly to take the day off!!

I hope to get caught up on the rest of the blog very soon!  Happy 2013!
