A few good ones

I was messing around with my phone this morning, really frustrated with it, and I said, "This phone is a piece of junk." And for the next hour, Chloe was running around, laughing hysterically saying, "Mommy your phone is a PIECE OF JUNK!" She said, "Daddy gets home I tell him YOUR PHONE is a PIECE OF JUNK!" Followed by the repeating of, "I said PIECE OF JUNK!"

And one more good one. We went trick-or-treating at Daddy's office yesterday. Chloe had a blast, running around, gathering WAY too much candy for a 2-yr-old. She was wound up like a top. She went to bed an hour late last night, so I naively expected her to sleep an hour longer this morning. NOPE. She woke up at 6:45. When I went in her room to get her, she was sitting up, wide-eyed. She leaned in real close to my face and said, "We go Daddy's office and get candy one more time?! Can we, can we?!I get my costume on, OKAY?!"

"Smile, Chloe."

This is the face I was rewarded with when I asked Chloe to smile for a pic today.

My Halloween costume

I put on a pair of old red cords tonight, which are incredibly out of style. Chloe took one look at me and said, "That's your Halloween costume, Mommy?"

Warning. Sleep-deprived mom with raging PMS on the Loose.

Just a warning to everyone reading this: I am currently experiencing high levels of PMS. Consider yourself WARNED if you choose to engage me in a political conversation regarding Gay Rights or Roe v. Wade. It could get ugly.

And may God Have Mercy on the next person who tells me I resemble Sarah Palin.

Mommy's going out of town

It's hard to believe that Chloe is two and handful of months and I have NEVER gone out of town overnight without her. That said, I don't know how will I do tomorrow, as I leave her and Kevin and get on a plane to Atlanta for two days. I'm very anxious about it, but I know she is in good hands with Daddy. Not to mention, he is quite excited about having her all to himself for the weekend.

If I call any of you teary of the weekend, you will know why. Or...if I call any of you at 2am from a nightclub in Buckhead.
