Thank you and everywhere

This post will probably be everywhere today. So bear with me and if you don't understand something, don't worry I probably didn't understand it either!

First of all, I want to say thank you for all of you kind comments on "Why did I have a 2nd child?" I didn't know if I wanted to write the post because I have a lot of new readers and I didn't know if it would chase them away or make them think, "This lady is crazy and mean," but it didn't. I am also glad I asked because I got a lot of suggestions which I've started using and I'll let you know how things progress in the future. And for the record, I LOVE both of my kids very equally. I would never say "I could live without (fill in a name here)."

I was tagged for a meme that I'll do on Monday because in case you can't tell I don't post on the weekends. That is time for my husband and kids since it's the only time we are all together! And I can't post today because Kellan made me remember a hilarious story from the other day that I wanted to share.

Taylor and I sometimes take a bath together. It's been like this since she was 10 months and it's not all the time. After she said this, I'm not sure it'll happen again! Monday night I was telling her we needed to get out so I could dry her hair and get her to bed because it was getting late (and she has school the next day, which I didn't tell her.) She asked to play just for a few more minutes. I told her I was getting out and when I finished getting dressed she needed to get out too. She was excited about that answer so I got out and began to dry off. She looks up at me so sweetly and says, "Wow mom, your butt is HUGE!!!" I said nothing. What could I say? She's right and I have been dieting so thank goodness she didn't notice this a couple of months ago. Do you need an honest opinion? Ask a toddler/preschooler, they are VERY honest!

I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Ugh, I hate and love that toddler honesty.

Kids can say the darnest things! At least it wasn't announced in front of a ton of people ;)

Have a wonderful weekend.

Kids are just sometimes too darned honest or blunt, aren't they? But, I always try to remember that just because they say something is "huge" or "big" it is all relative - everything is huge to them - right? Funny story!! Have a good weekend Courtney - see you later. Kellan

Ohhhh, out of the mouths of babes. I posted my son's own "compliment" to me today. I hope you have a wonderful, restful weekend with your family.

That is a really cute and funny story. my girls seem to say things like that, even when I have been losing weight and dieting, ugh. I found you through kellan, your girls are adorable.

That is one for the scrap/baby book :-) Kids are so honest some time. I got my hair cut the other night after the kids were in bed, when I went to pick them up at daycare, my oldest yells across the room "MOMMY WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR HAIR???" Ah..thanks Bug. She later said she liked it but I was about ready to die. LOL It is cut different than I have had in the past and she just did not recognize me at first. LOL

Have a great weekend!

Just lost my long comment. So will quickly say, You are so funny!

Ah kids they come up with some wacky comments! At least your child said it to you and not to a perfect stranger like my 3 year old did one day in the store, talk about mortified, but he was right. They just call them as they see them.

I am new to your blog, I saw a link from Kellan's blog to yours, I will be back and I encourage you to check out mine too.
