I knew this day would come. Today was that day when my lack of restraint, patience and overall personal editing was held up to my face like a mirror.
When Greg and I picked Liv up from school today, she was sitting quietly and playing Lego’s with a friend.
We were greeted by Miss Kelsey, one of Livia’s sweet teachers who proceeded to tell me my daughter was “funny” today.
“Livia was playing earlier with the Lego’s and knocked over one of her lego towers.”
She (Livia) then yelled out “SON OF A BITCH!”
Greg just looked at my with a look that says “This is all on you.”
Miss Kelsey replied “Livia! What did you say?”
To which Livia replied “SHIT!”
To which Miss Kelsey replied, “Livia! What did you say?”
To which Livia responded, “Darn-it?”
“Ok. That’s what I thought you said.”
So part of my giggled just a little bit on the inside. I mean come on. It is kinda funny.
At least she didn’t drop the F-bomb.
But then the responsible parent kicks in and thinks “I really need to watch what I say around this kid.”
Ya, good luck with that.
“Mom, I appreciate if you would eat your treat balls. I’m gonna put “them” right here so you can share wis me okay?
Mom? I appreciate that you can eat ’em wis me.
She takes a bite of the white chocolate truffle.
I ask, “what’s inside Livia?”
“Is butter,” she says with a huge grin on her cute little face.
Anyone who knows me well knows how much of an animal lover and advocate I am.

Sometime while I am doing things around the house and not really paying attention to anything. I look up and am instantly yanked out of my daydreams and see my child walking around the house and it just trips me out to see a little person walking around my house.

I pretty much wanted to spend the day on the back of all of my ponies and since Livi is still to little to ride and Greg isn’t interested, Greg decided to go exploring.
There is a “town”, a “dot on google” that is called Lakeside. Frankly I am not even sure how to get there.
Greg has been curious about it, so he packed up LuLu and headed out. Continue reading “Livi’s Day with “Datty””
I was all excited to start Livi in daycare. Excited for some freedom, excited for her to play with little people and to socialize. And then the reality of dropping her off and LEAVING HER hit me today. Continue reading “Livi’s First Day at Daycare”
