I’ve decided to have another baby

**HA! THAT got your attention, didn’t it?  It’s also a raging lie, but this babylicious post is courtesy of my friend Steph @ Problem Solvin’ Mom.  Seriously? If your babymaking parts don’t do a little dance after seeing all this yummy goodness you are just a ROBOT…dead inside…completely inhumane! I am on my way to Alabama right now (sans kids) to spend the weekend with my husband. Alone. Just me and him. No kids.  Whatever will we do with ourselves? Heh. Thanks, Steph, for giving my readers something sweet and wonderful in my absence. {{HUGS}}

Do you ever wonder how much of our kid’s likes and dislikes come from taking our lead? My daughter, Sweetpea, is definitely her own little person. She has what I consider to be an adorable, outrageous personality – some traits are definitely from me or her Dad, and some totally her own.

She has recently become partial to frogs – she has a frog lovey that she’s just started to show a preference for over her other loveys (prior to this any old doll or blanket would do, just as long as she had something to hold) and she points out the frogs to me in all of our story books. She has 3 plastic bathtub toy frogs that she carries around with her through much of the day. Wonder where she got this affinity for frogs? I’m wondering if it might have started here:

Or, maybe here?

The evidence is inconclusive at best as to whether we had anything to do with it, but I have my suspicions.

Skeptical? What about her love of apples and strawberries? Maybe all kids are partial to fruit…it is sweet and delicious, of course, but I’m wondering if this had anything to do with it?

Need a close up to better decide?
Mmmm, whats not to like about that, huh? I have to say, I’m not sure if it’s berries and apples I’m craving now, or maybe another baby…

On to my point, before I forget it! My husband and I are at odds on almost every movie that one or the other of us loves. He likes scary movies, I hate them. I like chick flicks, he hasn’t watched one since we got married… I have never liked Bambi, Pinocchio, Mary Poppins or The Wizard of Oz – hubs says they’re classics. (sounds like something his mother told him, huh?) It will be interesting to see what kind of movies Sweetpea likes.

One thing we can agree on when it comes to holiday movies – The Year Without A Santa Claus is the best ever…Sweetpea seemed to like the characters when we posed with them last year.
Hangin with Heat Miser
Chillin with Freeze Miser.

I’m hoping she enjoys watching the movie with us this year – I’ve already scanned the TV schedule for when and where we can check it out.  Hubs does a great song and dance along with the Miser brothers…I’m going to do everything I can to get it on camera this year.  I expect Sweetpea will be dancing right along with him – at least I hope so!

    What a great and funny post! I love that movie! It’s one of my favories, and Angel and Little Man watched it this year!

    Frogs are Munchkin’s thing. Perhaps they’re two of a season?
