Two and eleven twelfths

So, I swear I’m going to get to my Tulum-a-palooza posts, but I can’t let this day go by without publicly noting that my baby girl is one month from being a three-year-old. What the what? It’s true. And it’s exciting.

As her vocabulary continues to explode, I notice more and more interesting associations that she makes. For example, when I told her that the van driver gave us a beer after we got off the plane in Mexico, she said, “Daddy has a beer.” It took me a moment, but I realized that she was hearing “beer” and “beard” as the same thing. And yesterday, when I asked her if she wanted to watch the Puppy Bowl, she pointed at her small bowl of raisins and said, “That’s a people bowl.” Also yesterday, I noticed that she must think that “Sorry, that’s ok” is a phrase. I assume it’s because nearly every time she says “sorry” for something or another, I say, “That’s ok.” Now, she runs it all together. This morning, we had this exchange:

Molly: I’m going to kick you.

Me: What? Why would you kick me?

[Molly takes a step towards me and gives me a light kick.]

Me: Ow!

Molly: Sorry. That’s ok!

    That’s so sweet. I think sometimes we are ridiculous. She doesn’t know how to say she doesn’t understand. She just accepts that we don’t make and sense to her. Last week, when I arrived earlier than usual to pick her up, she looked at me and said “you are here already”. Sweet.

    So cute. I just love seeing how children make connections in their lives. When Kyle was young, we discussed what he should call me. Grandma Roe? No that was Mike’s grandma. Grandma Jane? Didn’t sound right. Big Grandma, old grandma, gin grandma? All accurate, but no. And then one day Kyle referred to me as Puppy Grandma. Brilliant! I was Puppy Grandma and Julie was Kitty Grandma . Whew so much better than some of the other possible choices.

    So cute. At least it was a light kick!

    Very true, Fee, very true. And Jane, I had no idea that’s how Puppy Grandma came to be! I mean, I knew that was what you were called, but I didn’t know that Kyle came up with it. Adorable.

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
