Valentine's day

Muffin had a wonderful day on Valentine's! We'd made some crafty presents for Muffindad the night before, and she was so excited about it that we woke up Muffindad just to give him his presents. (Sorry, no extra sleep for Muffindad!) We had heart shaped French Toast (cut into shape by Muffinmom) for breakfast, then went to a fun birthday party that afternoon. After nap, we opened the rest of the presents for everyone and had a fantastic dinner at our favorite Tex Mex restaurant, Tinga Taqueria

So of course on Sunday, Muffin asked me if it was Valentine's day again. LOL! I told her no, and she wanted to know why? YOU try to explain it to a 4 year old who wants more holidays!

Kissing a boo-boo

Last night Muffin was playing with Muffindad, and unintentionally punched him in a 'sensitive spot'… ouch!

Muffindad grabbed Muffin and told her to please never hit him there again because now he had a big boo-boo that hurt a lot.

To which she replied - do you want me to kiss your boo-boo and make it better?


Of course we explained that she couldn't kiss the boo-boo but she could hug and kiss Muffindad to make him feel better. And she did.

Children's innocence… gotta love it!

Jokes & Riddles

Muffin has understood the concept of 'jokes' for quite some time. Her first 'jokes' consisted of listing a bunch of items that didn't seem to go together, for example:

"Cow, Bird, Lion, Giraffe"

followed by laughing. I guess she thought the combination funny? Then she'd ask me & Muffindad to say our own jokes, so we'd proceed with our own list of animals, and she'd crack up.

We've now discovered Knock Knock jokes and riddles. She probably picked this up from watching Lambchop (on Youtube ). Daddymuffin did come up with a couple of good ones:

"How do you catch a squirrel?
Climb up a tree and act like a nut!"

"Knock Knock"
"Who's there?"
"Orange who"
"Orange you glad to see me?"

and of course there's always the old standby about the chicken crossing the road...

So now during dinner she wants to do jokes… help? Anyone know where we can learn some simple jokes & riddles?

Who knew it could fly?


We always check when Muffin goes potty to make sure she's truly clean (especially after the time she smeared poop all over the tub... )

SO today I was sitting in front as she's wiping. She likes to look at the TP after wiping to check its all clean... well, after her first 'check' I suddenly noticed that something went flying and landed on my pants. Yep. A nice chunk o'poo. Oh they joys of parenting ....

This ranks right up there when she was a 2 month old and pooped on my hands as I was putting diaper rash cream on her tushy.

Anyone have funny poop stories?
