Princess Diana Exhibit

Last weekend, mom and I took Kylie to the GA Aquarium and the Princess Diana Exhibit in Atlanta. Believe it or not, the Princess Diana exhibit made more of an impression! She cannot stop talking about the princess clothes. While we were looking at Princess Di's wedding dress, she asked, "Is that MY wedding dress?" On Monday, she laid out all of Mom's jewelry and shoes and said, "'s the Princess Diana exhibit!" She loved seeing the "real" princess stuff, even though we waited in line for 2 hours to get in.

Father's Day

I've been trying to explain Father's Day to Kylie for a week. Yesterday, on Father's Day, I told her it was finally here! She got very upset that it wasn't "Kylie Day." She told Paul that he'd better share his day. "It's not Mommy's Day or Kylie's Day. It's Daddy's Day. You'd better share it, or I'm gonna have a BAD attitude! It's going to be a BAD day if you don't share it!" This went on for quite some time. What a pleasant Father's Day for Paul! :)

Paul got a new grill, a smoker cookbook, a shirt, a BBQ mop and a hamburger press for Father's Day. We put the grill, BBQ mop and cookbook to a test last night when Paul had to cook his own Father's Day dinner....smoked brisket. Pretty good!


We went to a friend's for a playgroup the other day. She had a great backyard with a slip n slide, kiddie pool, etc. Kylie played for about an hour, then ran up to me and said, "I've had a great time...but I'm ready to go now."

I haven't updated in here are a few tidbits.

Paul, Kylie and I were all wearing red shirts for Memorial Day. Kylie said, "You have on a red shirt. I have on a red shirt. Daddy has on a red shirt. We are so fashionable!"

Paul and I were talking about the military "lifestyle" and how people had to move alot. Kylie piped up from th backseat, "Well, I choose the princess lifestyle."

Kylie just got her first pair of ballet slippers. She is entranced by them. She wears them around the house and puts on impromptu performances of twirling and tiptoeing. She's really looking forward to her Snow White ballet camp in July!

Kylie has suddenly become a little fish in the water! She is swimming from halfway across the pool to the wall. One day she was clinging to me and the next day she was swimming! She claims that she is now a mermaid.

Kylie has now decided the showering by herself is the way to go. I went to check on her in the shower and as soon as she saw me she said, "NOOOOOOO!!!! It's still WARM!" When I finally got her out of the shower, she told me that she was a "Super Reader" and needed to "run around nekkid." She also asked me to put some "conditioning" on her hair. She then decided, "I changed my mind. I'm a princess." When I finally convinced her to get dressed (by acting like her pajamas were a "royal animal tapestry"), she asked, "Well, do I look beautiful?" She's quite full of herself these days!

Potty Trainin' and Entertainin'

Today, I was driving Kylie home from playgroup so we could eat lunch. She said, "I don't want to go home. I want to go to McDonald's." I told her that we didn't have any money to go to McDonald's. She said, "Well, I have a credit card!"

Kylie is now fully potty trained (but still in diapers at night)! I am thrilled! She refers to herself now as a "Super Pooper." Once she even jumped off the potty and said, "I am potty trainin' and entertainin'!" She loves to rhyme!

Good Girl

Today, after our Valentine's Day party, Kylie approached me with a piece of candy and said, "Here mama. This is for being a good girl at the party."

At a restaurant the other night, I was rolling Kylie out the door in her stroller. I temporarily set her sippy cup on her shoulder. She said, "Heeeeeey, now I'm a pirate!"

Mom was looking at baby pictures with Kylie the other day. She told Kylie that was when she was a little baby. Kylie said, "Yes, I was a little sweet heart."

Kylie has had a glorious time this Valentine's season! She had a party at her school, where she acquired many tattoos. She came home, poured out all her loot and showed me each Valentine. Today, we hosted a Valentine's party at our house for the Mom's Club. She is especially enjoying all the candy.

The other day, Kylie "tooted" in the bath tub. I asked, "What was THAT?" She said, "That was a burp from my belly!"

Yesterday, Kylie was "pretend reading" her Cinderella book. I was listening and overheard, "There is the meeeeean and spiteful stepmother. And there are the stepsisters. They are mean, too, They are boogers!!!"

Kylie and I were in the car and Kylie was eating a Scooby Doo fruit snack. She said, "Wilma was on Scooby Doo." I said, "She was??" She said, "NOT!"

We went to the Morris Museum of Art yesterday for their toddler time. This time it was all about sculpture. She then sculpted what she described as, "The bridge from the 3 Billy Goats Gruff." Kylie is very interested in "sugar bugs" and brushing them off of her teeth. I told her that the troll in her Billy Goats Gruff book never brushed his teeth and now she asks me all the time which foods are good for her teeth. She references the troll and his yellow, cracked teeth most often.

Kylie has now been 3 days in her big girl panties. We are hoping that this is it!!

This morning, as Kylie ate breakfast, she let out a big ol' toot. She looked at me and said, "Goodness gracious! Was that YOU?"

Art Museum

Last night, Kylie woke up screaming. I went into her room and she pointed to the corner and said, "Tarantula!!!" Trust me, there was no tarantula.

Today, Kylie kept saying there were bees in her ear. I took this as a sign that perhaps she had an ear infection, and I was correct! An ear infection in both now she's pumped up on antibiotics, benadryl, tylenol and triaminic. Poor kid. She's in a pretty decent mood, though.

We went to the local art museum the other day. It was a really neat program, in which they took the toddlers through the museum, read a book while gazing at the abstract art, and then let them paint their own abstract art on a small canvas. I'm definitely going to go to this every month, as they do a different theme each time. The next theme: Roosters Rule the Roost. I'm not really sure what this will entail, but how could you go wrong?

Fairest of them All!

Today, Kylie was marching around the house saying, "Who's the fairest of them all? Kylie, Kylie! Who's the fairest of them all? Kylie, Kylie!!" She's in a major Snow White phase. :)

Princesses go for a Ride!

Yesterday, Kylie loaded all of her plastic Disney princesses into the back of her Cozy Coupe and started driving them around the house. She said, "Come on, princesses! We're going to WalMart to get SuperGlue! Okay, now we're going to the Fresh Market to get dinner." One unfortunate princess (Sleeping Beauty) was having to ride sticking out of the gas tank....just not enough room in the Cozy Coupe for everyone. Later, she was playing with the princesses and I overheard her saying in a small, princess voice, "Thanks for picking me up, Kylie!"

We went to see "Alvin and the Chipmunks" today at the theatre. It was not as wonderful as "Princess and the Frog," the first movie Kylie went to see at the theatre, but she still enjoyed it. I would not want to sit through it again!
