Pumpkin Carving


Kylie came down the stairs the other night and said, "I hit my head. I am so FRUSTRATED!" Haha!

Mom and I took Kylie, Mia and Ella to the grand opening of the new Food Lion. They have little toddler sized carts that the girls could push around. We made each of them a list with things to put in their carts. They LOVED it! Leo, the Food Lion was there. Kylie said, "He looks like Dandelion from my book." The girls also got stickers. Now, Kylie only wants to go to Food Lion. If we go to Kroger, she gets mad. I took her back to Food Lion the other day, on a normal day...not the grand opening. Kylie said, "Where's Leo, the Food Lion??? Where's my sticker???" Back to reality, Kylie.

Last night, Kylie picked out some skittles from the Halloween candy bowl. She said, "I'm going to eat this candy when we get back tonight. Is that a good plan?"

We recently carved our pumpkin! Kylie dug right in there and helped scoop out the goo. She loved it!

At the Fire Station...

Kylie had a great time at the fire station with all her friends!

Painting the Pinata!

Here, Kylie is painting the pinata we are making for our Halloween party!


Today, Kylie had to go to the doctor. The nurse asked what was wrong and Kylie told her, "I have a red and swollen eye and a snotty nose." The nurse said I didn't need to be there. Later, the nurse told Kylie she was going to eat her up, to which Kylie responded, "No." It ended up that Kylie just had a sinus infection. We got the go-ahead to continue with our trip tomorrow to the pumpkin farm and corn maze.

Kylie helped me make cookies the other day. When Paul ate one, she said, "Aren't they FABulous??""

We went to the firehouse for a tour on Thursday. On our way there, Kylie yelled from the back seat, "I bet they have a hose!!" She was excited to see the firemen in their uniforms. When they said they were going to put them on, she yelled, "I have a unicorn, too!" I'm sure she was referring to the ride-on unicorn that she recently acquired.

Little Titty

Unfortunately, Kylie sometimes mistakes her "k" sound for "t". A friend just told me that when Kylie was at her house, she was going around singing to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb," "Mary had a little titty, little titty, little titty."

In the meantime...

Kylie got some new silver sparkle shoes today! And some brown suede shoes (not as exciting and undeserving of an exclamation point). Once home, she put on her new shoes and said she wanted to go outside. We told her she could wear them tomorrow to school. She said, "Okay. I wear them tomorrow at school. In the meantime, I'll wear them outside." Cracked me up!

Bear Hunt

Today we were listening to "Going on a Bear Hunt." If you know the song, you know that they find a bear in a cave and run back to their house. At the end, it says, "We went on a bear hunt. And we weren't afraid." Kylie said, "But....they WERE afraid."

We went to a friend, Hudson's, birthday party today! Kylie got to decorate her own cupcake, but she was more interested in the dish of chocolate chips beside her. That's my girl! When we got in the car, she said, "I ate too much chocolate." I can relate.

Tonight I put on a white clay facial mask while Kylie was in the tub. She took one look at me and said, "Oh. You gonna be a ghost for Halloween!"

Treat box

I have set up a treasure box system for Kylie's potty. Each time she earns 7 tokens (1 each time she uses the potty) she gets to look in the treasure box. Now, she has developed her own system for me. She filled a glass jar with toys and gives me one each time I go potty. I have earned a lot of toys!

Today, I told her that we were going to Target and the grocery store. She said, "No. That's not my plan. I am going to play with play doh."

Funny girl

Last night, I heard a big bang in Kylie's room. I went in there to find her naked and crying. She said, "I was spinning around til I got dizzy." She had fallen into her toy box. I told her to get in her bed. She said, "No. First, I'm gonna spin around til I get dizzy. Then I'm gonna pee pee on the potty. Then I'm gonna put on my panties. Then I'll get in my nice warm bed."

Yesterday, she was searching for the gummi bears. Unfortunately, I had eaten them all. She said, "There they are! They're running away!" I said, "Where are they going?" She said, "I think they're going to Africa!"

Kylie has been doing a pretty good job going on the potty. She earns 1 token each time she uses the potty. When she gets 7 tokens, she gets to choose a prize from the prize box. She still has yet to poop on the potty. I think she's scared to. I threw away a pair of pants today because I cannot handle cleaning them up.
