A New Chapter
La dolce vita -- il nome del mio blog significa la mia vita -- cosi dolce. I live in Berkeley with my Mom, Dad, and older sister Olive. She's already 12 so I have a real good role model -- and babysitter. I am going to use this blog to chronicle my development -- the foods I eat, the places I go, the new skills I learn. So for most it will be of no interest, but I hope my family and friends enjoy it.
Hi! It's been a while...
The other day we were at Target and Bijou said she had to use the bathroom. Doug decided to take her and let her go into the women's bathroom all by herself. We feel she's ready for this since she can lock the door to the stall all by herself and knows to wash her hands and we trust she won't dilly-dally to much. Everything went off without a hitch except this...
Bijou is so excited for her babies to come. I tried to warn her that it will be a LONG wait but she still insists on talking about all the details daily. Her new obsession is coming up with names for her babies. Today, she decided Abigail and Alistair were good names. I told her that Alistair wouldn't be too happy if we have another Alistair in the family but she wasn't buying it. I think she just loves Ali so much she wants another one.
As we plan to add one more to our family, Boogs recently voiced her interest in a minivan. This suggestion is so out of touch with what I thought I knew about her, I'm still struggling to get my head around it. As I see it, one of three things is going on here.
I want to be a mom.
The other day Bijou and I were at the pool. She had been swimming for 2 hours and I had lost track of time and forgot to ask her to go in and use the bathroom. She decided it was time to go in the hot tub, the finale to our trip to the pool, and a second after she got in she turned to me and said, "Mommy, I am not going pee." "Really?" I ask. Very suspicious.
The Bean learned how to click her tongue this weekend. I told her that is how you talk to horses. Then she told me, "I'm going to be a farmer when I get bigger and I'm going to have a horse and I'm going to name her poo poo." Oh, she thinks she is so hilarious with her potty talk. Let's see how many years this lasts.
