Pizza & Fried Chicken

Today was a lovely day- I've always wanted to say " lovely" I never say it. I started off the morning by being lazy. I got up at 7 with Paisley, only to get on/in the couch two minutes after. I grabbed her a sippy of juice, put on morning cartoons, and did not move until "I NEEE you to WIPE MEEEEE" was screamed out. That was 5 minutes after I got comfortable. I decided to get creative, and make her a "Fun Plate" full of snacks after she had her breakfast. She has a little blow up bed that we take to Mimi & Papa's house- and she likes to sit in it (naked) and watch morning cartoons in her playroom. I told her to get in her blow up bed, (clothes on) and brought her in a full cup of juice, and a "fun plate" of apples, cheese slices, goldfish, and a few animal crackers. She thought she was in Heaven, you shoulda seen her face. :)

We just came back inside from playing outside, with the hose. I had some lawn watering to do (our grass is dying) and for the first time ever- Paisley seized the moment and dove head in. To the water, not the grass. She was running, jumping, leaping, drinking- she LOVED the hose water. Normally she gets kinda freaked out by water spraying IN her face- but today... she must have woke up and thought to herself "what a wonderful day to get sprayed in the face by my Mom.... and I wont even cry- I'll ask for more!!!" We were laughing together so hard. We even had a few passer by's smile and say that it looked fun! IT WAS FUN!!!

Now- she is lounging on the couch- calming down. Nap time is quickly approaching, and Mommy AND Paisley are taking a 2 hour nap today. Man- life is rough (today!)

**Speaking of rough- can you believe Tommy actually had the nerve to say to me while I was away in Co. and he was home watching Paisley that "this job is so easy- you've got it made!!" I straight up laughed in his face-er ear- YA RIGHT. do it for more than 36 hours!!!!!!!!

(and no. the title has NOTHING to do with this post.)

Yeah, it was easy for him, cause' he probably wasn't ALSO trying to do all the daily tasks that come with running a household! Plus they are never the same with Mom! Why is it the second I walk through the door, it's time to whine!!
