I’ll wear a dress!

April 29th, 2011

It’s morning here, and Violet is in her PJs top, having taken off her bottoms and diaper at some point in the night. I just told her that Greta will be coming over later, and she ran to go upstairs, declaring excitedly, “Ok! I’ll wear a dress!”

Day Two

April 14th, 2011

After seven years of marriage, there are still things I’m learning about fashion from Stevel. Like how different colors of the same shirt heat up more than others. Here’s an example from today. As Steve picked up off of the floor the wadded jeans he had worn yesterday, I said, “Day two?”

“Oh, yeah ..” he said, “Day One is too stiff. Day Three is pushin’ it. But Day Two: That’s the sweet spot.”

Potty Training Fail

From upstairs: “Mom! Mom! Help! There’s poop on my hand!”

No sticker for that.

Oh, and Violet, lay off the raisins, k?

Warning: You Might Throw Up

April 12th, 2011

Violet’s first ballet class was today, and it was THE cutest thing I have ever witnessed. SO cute you might throw up when you see these photos. Seriously.

And here are photos from Violet’s and my journey to the South and from a visit from Steve’s mother. Hooray!

So far, Age Three is just fantastic.

Me: “Violet, sit properly in that chair, please.”
Violet: “[Sigh] Calm down, calm down.”

Violet: “Mommy? You go to school?”
Me: “Yes! I love school!”
Violet: “Mommy? You go to Mommy School?”
