Elf on the Shelf 2013 – Day 23

Life is all about what you do with the hand you’re dealt. Let’s face it, sometimes you manage to draw some really shitty cards, but you just never knew what’s coming next. So, you gotta keep playing. And if you’ve got some good friends beside you, you might even have a little fun.

Both Cadence and Cosette woke this morning, feeling a little better so what better way to celebrate and spend a Sunday than learning to play a little UNO?








And wouldn’t you know, our little card shark caught on quick and kicked Daddy’s butt in her very first game. Yeah, that’s our girl. 🙂




Excavation 2012 – Day #38 – It’s Not Easy Being Green

Who doesn’t love Kermit the Frog?

Honestly, I think anyone who is immune to Kermit’s charm should probably be put on some sort of Serial Killer Watch List. Luckily, it appears my daughter’s name will not be showing up on that list…

Up to this point, Cadence had only seen The Great Muppet Caper and commerical trailers for the newest Muppet movie on TV. She loved them immediately and would scream “Mupp-eh! Mupp-eh!” the moment they appeared. So, I should have known that she would immediately grab my old Kermit doll the moment I pulled him out of the old box in the basement.

She hasn’t let him go since.

Kermit is now one of Cadence’s regular playmates. He gets carried around the house, plays with Cadence in her kitchen, sits on the couch while she sits down for dinner, and even gets to sleep in her crib at night. He has also been on several car trips to run errands and go grocery shopping, and Cadence makes sure that Kermit has a front row seat when we snuggle on the couch and watch movies.

Good thing I wasn’t thinking about getting rid of Kermit during my decluttering. I imagine I would have one very pissed off toddler on my hands.

Don’t worry, Kermit, you’re here to stay.
