I love my daughter.

Guess what time she woke me up today?



We spent the rest of the morning snuggling on the couch and watching the CBC Kids lineup. Dragon Tales. Tractor Tom. The Save-ums. Nanalan. Her all time favourite, The Doodlebops. Mr Dressup. Zoboomafoo. Sounds like a lot of TV but some of these shows are only 10m long.

We were going to go back to the paddling pool but it was cold and rainy, so we ditched that idea. We had lunch at 1pm. I showered at 2pm. I got her dressed at 3pm.

We had supper, then went for groceries.

Now, when we go out, we often have random strangers telling us how beautiful our Lauren is. It's the hair that catches their attention. Tonight? It was her tiger costume. I don't have any pictures from in the grocery store, but I do have one from in the van.

Tomorrow, I'm back to work for a weiner 12-5 shift. Then it's packing Nick up for a month (!) with his mother. Steve is leaving for work tomorrow at "sometime between 4:30 and 5am" to drive 4 hours to fix some stupid computer system.

Since I got up late and had a large coffee both during and after groceries, i think I might be up for a while.

She's adorable anyway, of course, but her hair colour really is striking.

My standard response to anyone who comments on her hair is either,

"yeah, she's a lucky girl isn't she?"


"Lots of women pay good money to have hair that colour!"

Or both. :)

That means you were still sleeping at 10am?

Geez, where did those days go? By 10, I've been awake for 5 hours already, with 12-13 more to go.

Yes, yes, i was sleeping til 10am. did i mention i love my daughter???

and more often than not, i'm up til 1 or 2am. i am, and always have been a Night Owl. i'm just thankful my daughter allows me to indulge in this and i don't have to resort to the little blue sleeping pill every night.

speaking of which, i DO need one tonight :)

Um, Halloween in July?

I know this is a dumb question considering how a toddler's mind works, but what, praytell was Lauren doing in her tiger costume in July? Hasn't it been hot as hades there recently? Know what, scratch that, I see you mention it was cold and rainy....

But 10 o'clock. Man, I've been up for hours by then too except for Sundays when I get to sleep in. Oh, how I *love* Sundays!!

Lauren saw the costume in her closet and wanted to wear it. Figuring 'wtf, i paid $15 for it and you KNOW she won't fit into it by halloween', I let her wear it.

what i wasn't counting on was the FIT she threw when we went to go for groceries.

again, figured, 'wtf, she's 2 - who will care?' i let her wear it. :)

we got quite the look at the Tim Horton's drive thru too :)
