Can I tell you how much I DISLIKE this little guy. For those of you who don't watch PBS he's Caillou a bald 4 year old with and incredibly whiney voice! He NEVER gets corrected or punished but he often has an AWFUL attitude! His father's ALWAYS at home (he never works?) His parents NEVER loose their temper, raise their voice, or get frustrated. They ALWAYS ask for their children's help, and drop everything to take their children and their friends places? Talk about a false reality! The worst part is that after Sophia watches him--she thinks the world revolves around her. Out goes the please & thank you in comes the pouting. (oh yeah did I mention Caillou pouts too!) I work very hard to include my daughter, never raise my voice and come up with fun things to do--but it's much easier with a polite child then a self-indulged one. If you're going to have a false reality why don't we have a perfect, unrealistic version of a child instead of parents? Please!

Monday mornings mean an early flight for Nate & a tearful goodbye for Sophia. "I want to go too!" Is a common refrain in our house especially at the mere mention of airplanes. This morning my incredible husband invited us to join him for breakfast. It wasn't the first time we've eaten at the airport. Last week we had lunch with Nate while he waited for a delayed flight. I guess we made an impression because the waitress recognized us and gushed over Sophia. It was a wonderful family moment. Sophia practiced her colors over a bowl of Fruit Loops while Nate & I sipped coffee and marveled at articulate she's gotten. Sophia & Nate LOVE airplanes. So the view couldn't be better. But it was the company, the added moments with daddy, that made Sophia's day. At the last minute before he walked through security a familiar refrain lilted across the airport. "Daddy whe-R U?" Followed by lotz of blown kisses. This time it was a much easier to say goodbye. Especially when there's an escalator ride!

The first thing Sophia grabs as we enter the grocery store is a can of Pringles. She holds on to them for dear life & they sustain her through the tempting aisles. It would be an understatement to say she loves chips! At lunch time today she looked loving at the can of Pringles & said:
This beautiful hand-made piece of Rosemaling, created for our wedding by a dear friend. Mrs. Awes. I've never had a place to put it b/c I've never had a place for blue (sad but true)
Leftover bits from Paris, a street print and left over wine corks make my bulletin board looks sexy!
