Sweet moments

I have the most precious child ever to grace this earth. He's so thoughtful and he knows on the days I have off that I have to have my cup of coffee before I'll play so he brought me coffee in bed. Albeit the tinest cup I have ever had still the sweetest, even though it was litteraly shoved down my throat till I choked a bit. All I know is that a toddler with an ulterior motive is dangerous.

I swear I really didn't mean to do this but it happened... My child officially knows his first dirty phrase. The phrase he decided to pick up and repeate constantly "hooker bath", as in mom is to lazy to fill the tub so your getting wiped down with a rag. I suppose it could be worse, but still not very proud of this. So Quinn has been running all over the neighborhood telling everyone he takes a Ho-bath. I will admit I'm glad to find out most people have a decent sense of humor.

Germ Mules

Well I came home to a sick baby today. He has a fever of almost 103 and claims his tummy hurts. Not sure that his tummy actually hurts or if it was the first body part he thought of but, heh I'll go with it for now. So the upsides of a sick child, unlimited snuggles and cartoons! The downside, the snuggles... My child is a germ mule who still insist on putting everything in his mouth including me. Here we go again we will pass this lovely gift around to everyone one we come in contact with and will be forced into holing up like hermits. 
So here's to my beloved snuggle time that I cherish probably too much because he's growing up to quick. I guess we will be canceling our weekend trip to the water park for the third week in a row. I am convinced that eventually there will be a full weekend that all 3 of us are well enough to do something!

Where things go to die

Today was pretty awesome, soon as the storm ended we played at the neighbors, and 6 kids ran a muck and jumped in puddles. Quinn was the first to peter out and he decided it was time for shoes and good byes grabed my hand and tore me away from hanging out with the my new moms group. Three women makes a group right? We actually got Quinn right into the bath without too much fuss then right to bed. Sounds great right... Well let's not get ahead of ourselves!
My phone is my alarm clock so pretty important in my opinion, reached down to plug in my completely dead phone and my charger is gone!!! Ripped apart the whole house woke up Quinn to ask him where he took it. His response:
Q: I hide
Me: where
Q: behind
Me: Behind where?
Q: My knee, my arm, my foot

Well needless to say my best effort at toddle interagation was a total fail! So thanks grandma for letting my child haul my stuff off to the place where all things go to die. One middle of the night trip to the store $20 bucks for something I didn't need and back in bed before 11:30. Hopefully everyone sleeps through the night because I'm super pooped!

Daily happenings

So I have been MIA for awhile and for what I consider a good reason. A 103 degree fever as an adult for days on end is no freaking joke!! Well it's been over a week since my fever broke and I still can't hear a damd thing but oh well no body parts have fallen off and I've lost 5lbs (considering the 5lbs as a serious score!).
All whining aside a lot has happened since I holed up like a crazy person. I became an Auntie to a beautiful little girl named Violet!! A bit bummed that she lives in China so no snuggles but really appreciating all the photos and updates. Quinn is most excited about the new addition he has been walking around with my phone trolling for pictures of "HIS BABY!!" And then wonders off to find his glow worm to kiss hug feed and put to bed. 
Second thing that's happened which is also something to be celebrated SPRING has arrived, warm weather, tulips, green grass, trees with leaves, back yard grilling with the neighbors! I am so thankful for all of these things. And thanks to the social butterflies which are my husband and child we are now friends with the family a few doors down. Well I think we are... Quinn has decided to invade their backyard and has claimed the sand box as his. So sorry to these poor people because it looks like your stuck with us!
We also received a gift from Quinn and my most favorite trouble making dog... We now are the proud owners of a screen door that has a toddler escape hatch. It started off as a tiny hole then Quinn picked at a bit, then Ella saw a bunny and decided to make a break for it and jumped through the 2.5" hole making it a toddler sized hole. Well of course Quinn saw this new development in action and decided he would follow suite and chase the dog that was chasing the bunny. We are now on constant watch for escape artist, as I am to cheap to close the door and turn on the air. 
That pretty much sums up the big things, as much of the details have been lost to a constant haze of cold medicine and fever.
