She's 2...Oh, that makes sense.

I have the cutest little girl in the world. I really do. But sometimes she is crazy and drives me slightly batty. When this happens and I vent to someone about it the usual reply is this.

"How old is she?"


"Oh, that makes sense."
Like this should erase the fact that she is kinda nuts and freaks out occasionally over things that I have no idea what to do about. Example you ask....Sure!

1. "I need a HAIRCUT"

Our poodle was getting a tad hairy, and with the weather still nice and scorching, she was panting her life away. So haircut she had. Addi was so excited to take her there and gave her a big kiss and told her we would be back soon. For the next three house she waited in eager anticipation to go get her puppy. When she finally got to see her she was pumped and said how adorable and cute her little puppy had become....then the crazy 2 year old came out.
(Inspiration for haircut, with princess cape that was later adorned by Addi)

" I need a haircut." She sweetly said

"No you don't baby, your hair is beautiful" I reply, thinking that I am talking to a logical being.

"No, I NEED a haircut." She said with more urgency and whine in her voice.

This proceeded for about 20 minutes before I decided that what she really needed was a nap and her intense feelings would all be fixed with a few winks. But what was the first thing she said/wailed?


So there I was, trying to alleviate my daughters poodle envy and finally I just quit and we went to the bathroom where I wet down her hair and cut off the smallest amount of hair ever cut from a head. She felt better.

This is post haircut...Pirate patch added for fun (No I did not get to pierce her ears, Ronnie wont let me, but we found some stickers ones that seriously are awesome, they stay on for days, seriously!) 2. Yo Gabba Gabba

Does anyone watch this? Oh heavens its funny. The first time I saw it I thought, Wow, this show is totally for crack heads, this is really a joke made by severe drug users and it is laced with subliminal messages urging their druggie ways of life. So imagine my surprise when I heard that it was made by a couple Mormon dads just trying to give their kids something to watch. And watch they will. Addi loves it. It has taught her some adorable songs like " Don't bite your friends" and "There's a party in my tummy." Good life lessons involved there.
Her gabba guys
It has also given her another thing to desire when we go shopping. She now owns all the creepy guys and we have a good time reenacting their lives and loves in our home. When my mom reads this she will roll her eyes, we have totally not won over Jude on this show and she relates it to Tellie Tubbies, (it is really 100000 times better ma, really)

3. Trampoline.

"Lets go bounce." I hear it billions of times over the course of the day and usually it leads us out to the tramp to do said action. My father hates the thing and has us all convinced that it will lead to multiple deaths, but so far all it does is make my little girl so very happy. I love the hair that it makes! I really want one when we move to our house, do you guys have them? Should be put it in a hole? Is she going to break her neck?

Look at those awesome static flyaways! Love it!

4. The house
Only about 3 weeks till we get to move in. Cant wait to show you guys pictures!

Oh the terrific 2's. We're experiencing that same delightful, hairpulling fun. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has this problem, but it also makes me miss you guys and being able to vent together! :) WOW, three weeks! I'm so excited for you! That is amazing! Hallie loves tramps too and I say go for it, anything for a happy little girl! (hayden says "Just get one of the mini ones")

I love you that you have such an adorable daughter ! Where did you get those sticky earrings ?

Janika said...

I think you should get the tramp in the ground! We had ours in the ground and it was sooo much better!!! Supposibly it is more dangerous but I didn't think so. Next time she "NEEDS" a hair cut come and see me. She can sit in the chair and have her hair sprayed and everything. everything but a snip! Can't wait to see more pictures!

Okay, I hate to break it to you...but 3 is so much worse than 2. Really. Now don't get depressed, just get prepared.

Yo Gabba Gabba is SOOOO weird! Really, I don't get it. I did however see the Don't bite your friends episode, and the other day it was "Keep your hands to yourself" day. Whatever keeps them quiet for a while right?

Gwen loves trampolines...or jumpalines and she calls them (more logical don't you think). Morgan however does not, and does not let her on them if he's around. I, however, could care less about Gwen well being and let her jump to her hearts content. One of these days she'll break an arm or something then I'll be hearing a big "I told you so" from Morg. Oh well.

House! So exciting. Can't wait to visit. Oh, and can't wait for the annual witch hunt this year.

She's too adorable. I am so excited for you to get into the house. Thats so neat. Don't worry your husband isn't the only husband that won't let his little girl get their ears pierced. I told Clint I will wait until she is 8 then its a done deal.... :-)
Love ya Mandy.

Just wait until she is 3, Garrick was a saint at 2. I still am freaked out by Yo Gabba Gabba and we don't watch it yet. We really should watch more shows for Marley, we just watch Icky shows. I feel bad, I've been giving Marley haircuts forever good for you for waiting. I wish you were on A days.

Where else are our children going to learn to not bite their friends? I got Grayden the coolest Yo Gabba Gabba guitar for his birthday that plays a number of great hits. Can't wait for the new house, either!

Jennica said...

That little one of yours just must open your eyes so wide and big...I think she sounds like a passionate, lovable, adorable girl. And so exciting for you! Can't wait to see all the finishes you picked out!

I love the first pic of Addi in her swiming suit! What a doll! She looks just like you!

Does your dog have a jacket on...or did they die her hair pink? Cute!

Who are these Gabba-Gabba's? What channel are they on? Looks interesting! I don't think that I'm ready for the whole Tellie Tubbies, Barney, etc. thing! I don't have many brain cells left...I don't know if I want to kill them off by watching those kid shows. Parker and I like the same music...maybe he'll like the same tv shows as me. ha ha

Can't wait to see pictures of your new house! How fun to be in before the holidays!
