Going on 16

Yes I live with a 2 year-old who is probably going to turn 16 on her next birthday.  This is what came out of her mouth the other day when I told her it was time to go potty.

"No mom!  This is my life!  I do what I do!"

Awesome.  I did not actually see her while she said this, but I've gotten enough sass from her to imagine that she had one hand on her hip and she was pointing at me while leaning forward with her best this is the last time I'm going to tell you this mom face.

Potty training certainly brings out the best in both of us.  More on that later maybe...

Mad Face, Happy Face

Megan loves having her picture taken.  But she always wants to make either her "mad face" or her "happy face."  Maybe someday I'll get a picture of her smiling, but for now, this is what we get.  :)

New Addition

We've added a new addition to the Frost family.  It's not the baby you're thinking it might be.  She still has a month or so of cooking to do.  I'll introduce him in Megan's words (this is what she said to some stranger at a park who said he was cute).

"This is my dog Mo.  He is a shih tzu-maltese.  We picked him at the shelter."

So there you go.  She cracked me up when she said that.  First of all she sounded so adult like with such a long string of sentences that didn't start turning into nonsense like they usually do.  And this is not something we have trained her or taught her to say.  She has just apparently heard us say that to other people.  What a goof.

Mo is a good dog.  He is 1 year old so he definitely still has some puppy tendencies (over excitement, chewing and more chewing, and playing a little rough), but I think he will be a great dog for our family.  He's really patient with Megan...even when she wants to ride him or hug him tight around the neck or kick him.  Overall she loves him; just a little too much sometimes.

Day at the Park

I am finally getting around to posting again.  Work has been so crazy lately I haven't felt like touching a computer outside of work.  But, it has finally calmed down so now I can blog and share the few, very few, pictures we've taken lately.

I am so glad we have had a few nice days to play outside.  I don't do well inside all the time.  And I don't think Megan does either, or I just make her crazy because I'm crazy.  One of the two.


She climbed this thing all by herself.  Scared me half to death.

 This is Megan's "happy face."  She likes to make her "happy face" in pictures rather than smiling.
