Remembering to Remember Life

Life happens, fast, and gets away.  Before long your littlest isn't so little and you're thinking back on that funny thing they said, but life has happened since then and you just can't recall...

So this is my pause button.  My moment to remember and write down a bit of the awesomeness.  It's Saturday.  I got to sleep in with Teeny Tiny despite her having her head shoved just under my should blade, her favorite new sleep position.  Seriously, it feels like she's pushing with all her might.  This may or may not be because she's pressing her feet into her dad's side and is able to brace herself, mid sleep, to give maximum pushing force against my bones.

Anyway, sleep.  Yes, we got to sleep in.  I made Gingerbread Pancakes for breakfast. Here are some of Teeny's comments throughout the day:

T:  "You're making pancakes?"
Me:  "Yes.  Gingerbread pancakes."
T: "Like the gingerbread man?"
Me:  "Yep.  They're my favorite."
T: "You're the best mommy ever!  Can I make with you?  Can I stand on my chair?"
A little later on...""Can I take two purses to go shopping?'  "Can I take my doctor kick?"
Me:  "You can take one purse and no, you cannot take your doctor's kit."
Teeny seemed okay with this, but melted down when I told her that she couldn't put anymore rings in her purse.  She had approximately seven shoved in there already.  I was told I was "mean mommy."

Other notable sayings as of late:

"Stompeez are scary."  Stompeez is the word she recalls for Zombies.  Similarly scissors are "lizards," and a "mishmash" is a mustache.

She's quite fond of singing "Animal crackers in my soup."  In addition to "Jesus loves me," and "Sharp Dressed Man" by ZZ Top.  I dig that her musical preference is so eclectic. :)
