If You Ask Me...

I'd tell preschool teachers to PLEASE avoid using glitter as an arts and crafts tool.  If you must use it, please do not send the "artwork" home. 

I'd tell veterinary offices to avoid placing 20-pound cats in the lobby.  A cat lounging in the lobby is just an invitation for my children to come touch him despite you telling us "be careful -- he's a little

           and p.s. - do define "a little naughty" for me because I certainly wasn't picturing a   bobcat-type growl, followed by a paw swipe, finished off with hissing and teeth baring.  

 But typically, no one asks me, so I'll just leave the comments here on my blog for myself to enjoy. 

As far as other news from this week, 16 month-old Andi surprised me with a few comments. 

"Here you go," she said as she handed me a button.  I thanked her and she responded "welcome!"

She brought me a book "Look!  Book!"

And tonight when she dropped the filling of her oreo on the floor and Mocha tried to eat it, she began swatting Mocha -- who we all, including Andi, know to be a biter -- and yelled "No! No! No!" 

After shooing Mocha away, Andi looked at me and said, "Dumb Caca."

I'm not making that up.


  1. Hi Shannon,
    I'm betting that Andi ate the oreo filling. At least that's what her Uncle Erik would have done. I suspect ,as you know, that your girls channel Erik who is 37today the 22nd, and their Grnama Nikki, who is "OLD". I do not list her age in fear of retaliation.

    Love Aunt Pat

  2. yes, she did eat the filling. nothing gets between andi and oreo filling. Dave often says he is going to send Ella, especially, to hang out with Erik. We are sure she has his genes. Happy Birthday to Erik!
