My sister Kim found the deal of the century yesterday. FRYE boots ON SALE! This sale happened to be at a store called Apple Saddlery here in Ottawa. They had Frye boots regular priced at $399 on for $80!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kim picked up a pair for herself (blue/black ones below) and one for me too (the tan ones)! An awesome present to myself in celebration of having 6.5 weeks off work.


What transpired over the last hour (WARNING: SOME GRAPHIC CONTENT)

Isabella was playing in the basement and Simon and I were in the kitchen getting dinner ready. I realized that the dishwasher needed emptying and I yelled down to Isabella, "Want to come up and help put the dishes away?"

Isabella quickly responded, "YES PLEASE! I would love to come up and help!"

Up she came and after putting away one spoon, Isabella ran back downstairs saying that she didn't have time to help me out anymore.

Dinner was ready and I called for Isabella and no response. I yelled again and no response. I went downstairs and noticed her standing by the wall with 'that look' on her face. OMG SHE WAS SHITTING IN HER UNDERWEAR!

I marched her pooping highness up to the bathroom with the shower and made her get in. After 10 minutes of cleaning up the giant disaster and me swearing a whole lot under my breath, we made our way back to the kitchen. (During this whole horrible poop business, Simon was sitting in his highchair in the kitchen and he hadn't given him anything to keep him entertained since I was about to serve him dinner. He did not make a peep THE WHOLE TIME - and he was all alone in the kitchen for a good 10-15 minutes). Once back in the kitchen, I looked over at Simon and he was leaning forward in his chair with his hands crossed on his tray drumming his fingers as if to say "Hey lady! How dare you make me sit here all by myself!"

We sit down to eat dinner and I give Isabella a bowl of stew and start feeding Simon some too. Over the last couple of weeks, Simon has entered a 'must eat all by myself thank you very much' phase so I gave in and handed him the bowl of stew which, thank the good lord, was not very runny. He polished off the bowl (I must have cleaned his hands about 15 different times in between bites cause I'm anal like that) and he started moaning so I went and cut up a banana into a bowl and gave that to him. When he was done with that, he started scrapping the bottom of the bowl with his fingers and stared at me. I got the hint and dumped a bunch of grapes in his bowl. He polished that off and started scrapping the bottom of the bowl again and then when I didn't react fast enough, Simon picked up the bowl and turned it upside down and stared up into it and then glared at me. I got it alright - LOUD AND CLEAR. He's so freaking lucky that he's cute...

Is it bedtime yet?!?!?!?!


Random monday stuff

This morning was Junior Kindergarten registration for Isabella. I lost track of the amount of forms we had to fill out (I think we were there for 1.5-2 hours). Isabella had a blast playing with some boys whose parents were also there registering them for school. We got to go on a tour of the school and Isabella just loved being there. She's been asking since she could talk if we could take her to school. I can't believe that time is fast approaching.

I am THOROUGHLY enjoying working only 3 days a week. I feel alot less stressed because now I have 4 days to get everything done rather than 2 and that is a big difference.

When Isabella gets really annoyed with me she refers to me as 'Julia' instead of 'mom'...although lately she just calls me 'dear' (ie. "I'm coming dear!"). No idea where that came from.

Simon's favourite thing to do these days is lift up people's shirts and stick his finger in your belly button...and often not very gently.

I'm excited for dinner tonight. On the menu are things that I've made before and were a big hit. (Photos from my sister Kim's flickr set because she has made these recipes too and unlike her, I'm always too lazy to take photos of the end results). Recipes are in the links to Kim's flickr.
