who are you calling....

Charlotte has been trying out new names for us that she has heard her friends using but this morning cracked me up!

She was sat on the 'potty' doing a 'poop' whilst I was changing Toby's nappy in the living room. I think she wanted me to wipe her bum because she started calling me ... "Mummy! Mummy!" and when I didn't respond she moved on to "Mum!" then "Mom!" then "Dad!" and then started shouting "Ruth! Ruth! Ruth!" Over and over again! I couldn't reply because I was laughing so much!

I am not quite ready to be a Mum or a Mom but I guess that's better than Ruth! Bless her.

the one with the cookies

Sometimes I get really excited over little things. But being here is just like living out the tv programmes I used to watch or seeing things I have only seen in the movies...

Take yesterday for example. I was just about to get Toby out of bed and head out to collect Charlotte from school when there was a knock at the door... It was my 6 year old neighbour, dressed in her Girl Scout outfit, selling cookies (just like the little girl in Friends that Ross put in a wheelchair and then he had to try and sell her cookies). At $3.50 a box, they are not cheap, but it is great to be able to help Elise out and it put a smile on my face!
