Princess Olivia keeps filling various containers up with water/ juice/ milk / any liquid she can get her hands on and then pouring it all over various things all in the name of "tea party". About an hour ago she filled up Owen's shoe and it didn't hold water nearly as well as she had hoped.
She still has a pretty bad cold and has decided to drive me crazy about what and when and how much she will eat.
Olivia: Mommy I hungy (hungry)
Me: Ok, how about you eat the dozen things you've asked for so far this morning.
Olivia: no no no no no. I HUNGY mommy!!
Me: Seriously. Eat the bannana. Or the crackers. Or the apple. Or the carrots. Or the cereal. Or the fruit salad. Or the bun. Or the celery sticks. Or the orange. There they all are. Right there. Where you left them. On the living room floor. Half eaten.
Olivia: NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
Ya. She's fun. Two? Not my favourite age.
And Aiden? Did AWESOME at school yesterday. And lost his other front tooth last night. And then swallowed a penny at school today just to keep things interesting.
I just got a call from the resource teacher asking me if this was "normal" behaviour for my son. Which, by the way, it is NOT.
On the up side he didn't choke.
On the down side he SWALLOWED a freakin' penny ON PURPOSE to tick off his teacher. Ya.
And Owen? Did GREAT at school yesterday as well but today has decided to test the limits of my whining- tolerance level.
And the best part of today? We found out that our new town charges $1.75 PER BAG of garbage. That's right. $1.75.
This is an effort to encourage recycling... which I am all for... but they totally don't recycle everything and so we still have to pay for garbage. Nice eh? We have to go buy tags and tag EACH bag of garbage and they won't pick it up without the tag. And they only pick up garbage every second week. How to make garbage day ESPECIALLY difficult!
Other than that we are really enjoying our new town. Three cheers for having a Wal-Mart in town. And a Dairy Queen. And THREE grocery stores to choose from! YAY!
