I don't feel it....

This morning at breakfast I was sitting with the Monkey and as usual I was trying to quickly get her to eat, put her shoes on, etc. etc. etc. We were having our typical breakfast of choice these days, frozen waffles and a glass of milk. This morning though I didn't put chocolate milk in in her sippy, I put white milk. I figured I was safe since she couldn't see thru the sippy cup and tell her milk was not brown. But you guessed it the Monkey asked, "Is this chocolate milk"? I said yep it sure is. The monkey then states "I don't feel it". I said "Do you mean you don't taste it"? She said "Yea, that is what I said, I don't feel it". One things for sure, I am definitely going to miss our meal time conversations some day!!

Going to Work

By the title of this post, I am sure you think that I am again going to bore you with how work has been going lately and why I haven't had time to post.... But the little story I share below will give you all the perspective you need, as to how my work days have been going this past week.

Tonight at dinner the monkey began by stating in her very grown-up voice (that I might add has taken over her 3 1/2 yr. old body these days):

Monkey: I am not going to work anymore!
Daddy: Well where have you been working lately? (She recently told her daycare teachers she works at the hospital .. just like daddy)
Monkey: I work at Caterpillbur
Mommy: Well, why don't you want to go work anymore?
Monkey: Because... Those people are just crazy at my work!!!
Daddy: I agree :)
Monkey: I know, I think I want to work at the new Caterpillbur and I am going to put the people outside and shut the door!

What perspective the Monkey has, don't you think... Mommy's sentiments our exactly the same these days!!! It amazes me what kids can pick up on. I think Mommy and Daddy may need to save some of our daily work discussions for after the monkey hits the hay:)

Anyways, the monkey and I truly enjoyed our time off together last week visiting family and friends. Again, I hope to post some recent pictures, but while away the monkey got to attend the Sleeping Beauty Ball with her Mimi and Umpa at the children's museum, go to bounce and play with mommy, and play at the park.. It was a great little getaway and even though I am so thankful I still have my job, I would be lying if I didn't say that I am looking forward to the next rolling layoff week in July, just a little!! The monkey is growing up so quickly and it is so much fun to spend this extra time with her...
