Daddy Daughter Dates

Emma loves her daddy daughter dates. It all started when I didn't want to go to the grocery store so Greg decided that he would go for us and take Emma with him. He told Emma it would be a daddy daughter date! She had a blast and asks for daddy daughter dates all the time. When Greg asks her what she wants to do on their daddy daughter date she always says "Shopping!" Now Emma takes these dates very seriously, she needs to "have cute hair, cute shoes, and pretty makeup" for her date with dad. The other night I had a list of things I needed Greg to get at the store for me and Emma jumped up and ran out of the room. She came out and said she was ready for their daddy daughter date and this time she had done her own "pretty makeup"! I think it looks amazing! She is so funny sometimes!

Bad Mom!!

So I was blog surfing/stalking today and I read a great story on Corri's blog and thought I needed to share one of my own. I have had so many since this but this is probably my first bad mom moment and the point at which I fully realized how not prepared I was for this whole mom thing. We had come to Arizona to visit when Ethan was about 2 months old. Ethan was a tiny little thing, (at two months old we were so excited that he was back up to 6 lbs.) and so it was a common practice for me to change his diapers with him lying on my lap. We were driving down to see Greg's parents in Thatcher and we had stopped in Globe to feed and change Ethan. He was so cute and tiny lying on my lap as I changed his poopy diaper. Just as I started wiping him up and cleaning him he did what most little boys do and started to pee, right in his own eye! I panicked because my baby was getting pee on his face and my first instinct was to wipe it off, with the poopy wipey I had just been wiping his butt with!!! So now here is the scene, me crying/laughing with pee in my lap, Ethan crying, poopy on both ends now and wet all over, and Greg merrily getting food inside Jack-in-the-box! So I just thought I would share the beginning of my Bad Mom moments! I hope you enjoyed it!!
