Kids say the darndest things....

Yesterday I was playing on the internet during my lunch break at work. As usual, I check on my friends on my baby board say Hi see how everyone is doing, then if I have time I will usually pop over to The Pioneer Woman's website and see what's happening over there. (If you've never been there, it's really a great site and she is so much fun! Also, she's been nominated for several bloggies so if you get the chance, vote for your favorites at the bloggies website).

Well, since she was nominated, she wanted to thank everyone and held a contest (which she does quite often and has wonderful prizes). As part of the contest she asked for blogs that were not nominated. One of sites on there was This child, whom ever she is, says some of the funniest things I have heard come out of a toddlers mouth in a long time. You should check it out!

It also reminds me of some of the things that Abby will say from time to time.

Like this morning at 3:00am when she woke me up.
Abby: "Mommy, wake up, wake up!"
Me: "Huhn.....What?! What's wrong honey?"
A: "I'm all done going to bed"

Or the time she yelled at my step-dad for saying damnit.

For those of you who don't speak Zabba, she said My name is Zabba and I'm 2.

Sweet Child o Miiiiiiiinnnnneeeeeeeee

OK, sorry, that was a really bad attempt at trying to sound like Axle Rose from Guns N Roses. I promise I will never try and do that again. Well, at least in this post.

So I'm sitting here watching my very sweet darling daughter play in the area under the stairs where I store her toys (well, I try to store them there, but they are usually strewn about the house). And this is when it hits me (again) that I gave birth to this child and how blessed I am that this miracle has come into my life.

Then, she came up to me, gave me a great big hug and said "Mommy, you are my best friend ever I see." Awww!

Turns out she was just hungry for some grapes, but that's OK. At least she likes me and now I have documentation of it so when she's older and tells me she hates my guts, I can come back to this post.

A little overwhelmed

So, I decided recently that I would like to go to school to get a degree so I can make more money. Because let's face it-without money you can't have "stuff" and we all like "stuff"-you know like food and water and clean clothes.

Well, I decided that since my full time job gives me money so I can buy "stuff" that I should keep it and go to school so I can get my degree so I can earn more money. Great idea righ?!?! So, now I work full time and take 3 classes online. This in addition to chasing a 2 year old around the house while I'm also taking the time to make dinner, do the dishes, pick up various toys, play and what not.

So, I'm going to admit something that no one knows (well, now except you). I'm really overwhelmed.

Busy time of year

Well, it's that time of year at work where everyone one and anyone decides to call in and ask questions. Today while I was on the phone checking voice mail messages, I got 3 more messages. These things don't stop!!! The nice thing about it is that I only work my 40 hours and then go home, put my feet up have my husband massage them and fall asleep while I dream of sexy fire fighters with gleaming bodies and....yeah right!

Then I wake up and realize that I was dreaming and I'm about to go into work and answer the 40,000 phone calls, go pick up Abby from daycare, go home, make dinner, do some homework, give a bath, pick up toys, play babies and blocks and any other game she can think all while watching Dora the Explorer for the umpteen millionth time.

Oh yeah, reality is way more satisfying than that dream!
