Anicah wasn't really a talker until recently. Maybe the last few months or so she really started talking a lot more than her standard "Mmmhmm," responses to most anything.

Things she has said recently:
  • I kissed a werewolf.
  • Mom, I don't eat poop!
  • More fuzzy drinks, please! (carbonated beverages = fuzzy drinks)
  • Show me your belly!
  • I itchy. [Where?] My butt.
  • Moooore farkelly!!! (farkelly - sparkly)
  • Can I have some jelly butter? (jelly butter = peanut butter & jelly)
  • I has my baby my bottle.

She's just so darned straight forward about everything she says! She doesn't say anything like she's ever asking a question or unsure of what to's just this statement that she blurts out with no care about how it might be interpreted. She's SURE you're going to understand her right away. Jocelynn is beyond all this "baby talk"...but I am still quite amazed by her imagination.

Things Jocelynn has talked about recently:

  • (After accusing Anicah of lying about kissing a werewolf, and my rebuttal that Anicah might have dreamed it...) Mom! Anicah doesn't DREAM. I never see a cloud over her head.
  • I'm going to play house with Anicah. She's the husband...but pretend she's a man. And taller.
  • MOOOM! We can't go to Canada. We don't speak Canadian.
  • I like washing dishes! (Keeping this for future reference only.)
  • Cleaning is boring...Mom, you should do it.
  • I'm not a little kid anymore. I'm SIX. That's an adult.
  • I can't wait until I'm a teenager...So I can move out! (Keeping this for future reference, also.)

Oh the joys...

Worst week EVER.

Mid-winter break is possibly the worst week ever. It's too gross to actually go outside & do anything...but we're all going crazy indoors. This kind of thing doesn't happen in Florida. I really wish I was back in Florida.

Love you long time...

Valentine's Day is coming up! Interesting what has become of a holiday that used to involve people beating each other with wolf pelts.

No big plans for the girls and I yet. I've sold some things on Amazon for a little extra cash to give us some activities to do. The kindergartner has a "mid-winter break" in school the week after Valentine's. We might take a little time to do some things then.

I think I might start a 52 week project to do for Eric to see when he gets home. A scrapbook with a layout a week of what the girls have been doing...even if it's boring stuff, I think it'll be fun to give the girls something to do & share with daddy when he gets home. This means I might be about 2 weeks behind already, but I'll catch up! I hope!!

We've met a lot of fun people recently...even some who are into scrap booking. I'll be babysitting in the last part of the month for a friend who is getting a job (earlier than she anticipated) and needs a few weeks of care for her infant & toddler. Little one has met the toddler already and they were very friendly with each other.

What are you afraid of??

I was filling out an online security doohickey the other night. I had to pick 15 security questions. No, that isn't a typo.

So I pick my 15 questions, and it gives me a dozen or so "standard answers" which are just options with a radio button next to them to choose. I could also enter my own answer manually, by typing it in, but was discouraged from doing so because the prompter advised I could fall victim to a keystroke logger. I did choose to write in some of my own answers, b/c I knew I would remember them a little better. I found one a tad amusing, though:

What scares you the most:
  • Being Alone
  • Death
  • Getting Caught
  • Men
  • Speaking in Public
  • Birds
  • Drowning
  • Heights
  • Rodents
  • Spiders
  • Children
  • Driving
  • Insects
  • Snakes
  • Tests
  • Closed Places
  • Flying
  • Marriage
  • Social Events
  • Women

That's um...Weird right?? I mean, some of them seem pretty standard as far as fears go...but "Children"?? I know they can smell fear and all...but there's really no need to fear them. Most adults can easily outrun a child. :)
