Reason #bajillion33 why I love Molly: she thinks I'm a straight-up culinary genius for feeding her such exquisite meals as scrambled eggs and applesauce. "Mommy, you make great meals every night!" she exclaimed (the previous night I had picked up a rotisserie chicken). God knew what he was doing giving me a girl who has a less than sophisticated palate. I believe tonight our four star meal will consist of waffles and apples. What's up now Julia Child?
Reason #bajillion33 why I love Adrienne: she has a temper! I know this won't always be cute, but when she chucks her bottle clear across the room when I try to wipe her nose I can't help but crack up! (how infuriating for her, right?) Or when she's mad about taking a nap and shoves my face away when I move in for a kiss? I actually sort of love it. She's so laid back and sweet normally, if it weren't for these little tantrums I'd worry people would walk all over her. But nope- anyone who tries any funny business with this munchkin will suffer the wrath! Love it!
Of course, now that A is getting older, my girls have morphed from indifferent roommates to partner in crime playmates. This is what I want, it is. Sort of. In related news, tomorrow I'm off to buy a Magic Eraser to work on getting crayon off the door, pen off the stairwell, and eyeliner off the wall (it's surprising difficult to remove!) If you guys have any tips for kiddie art removal please clue me in! I've tried the obvious: soap and water, Goo Gone, miscellaneous chemicals... I've heard good things about Magic Eraser though- you?
Edit: I actually wrote the above yesterday. Today I bought a Meijer brand "Erasing Sponge" (Magic Erasers were out of stock- good sign!) and I've been scrubbing ever since. We have a glorious invention on our hands! I'm completely in love and am going to write Mr. Clean encouraging them to bring to market a Magic Toothbrush so I can get hard water stains out of my grout. Am I on to something or what?!
