Shoopie Dear

As if the girlies in this household didn't have enough opinions... Now we're asking Shoopie (Shelby) the bald-headed Cabbage-brat what she thinks. Everything is "Shoopie says no." And "Shoopie doesn't want to." And "Shoopie wants this" and "Shoopie wants that". "Shoopie needs a snack." Shoopie was quickly approaching my last nerve!

A meaner (but smarter) Mama would have let her ditch her in the grocery cart after she was told with all the exasperation a toddler can muster that, "She can stay here." Even two-and-a-half year old (and don't forget the half) Mamas have their limits when grocery shopping with their kidlets. And I thought it was just me. I quickly made my peace with Shoopie as I fished her out and made sure she was tucked safely next to the car seat in the backseat. It's still a little disappointing though that as demanding as she's been lately, she's never going to be much use when it comes to chores.

I HEAR YA! Horsie Horse Dora Gobble is running the way things go around here A LOT of the time. Problem is 1) She's a horse...no hands and 2) If she had hands, she's really not much use anyway.

Things seem to take forever when Horsie Horse Dora Gobble is around.
