Ahhh Crap

Tia Mandy said "Bummer" the other day... Quinn asked what it meant. Mandy explained that it means that something didn't go as expected. Quinn says "Like Oh Crap!. That's what daddy says"

Upside down accomplishments

So today at the playground, Quinn, all by herself, hung upside down on the monkey bars.

She was able to get in position, lock her feet on the bar, and hang outside down. Then she was able to recover - after some practice, and get back up.

This is a pretty big muscular accomplishment.

Potty Time

Quinn, who has been potty trained for nearly a year, insists on watching "Potty time with Elmo," one of the DVD's we used when we were training her. She said that Sara Doll, her baby doll toy, is potty training and "has been wearing panties for TWO DAYS!"

Yawning Day

Quinn proclaimed that today was a "yawning day" as everyone was yawning this morning.

Movie night

Drat, Quinn woke up in the middle of our movie night.

Princesses on ice

Another show today... Princesses on ice - totally
Different experience.... Quinn was still good, but you wouldn't notice if she wasn't.... It was a huge arena with tons of kids.

Scream endurance

1.5 hours of "I want a fruit snack" screaming from 10pm to midnight. Finally, accepted cantalope
as a substitute.

Rave revues!!!!

The intentional play on words is because we just attended our first successful inside show with Quinn. (There was a previous failed attempt). She sat through both acts of "The Marvelous Wonderettes" at Stages. This was the 3pm matinee. I'm so proud of her!!!! Especially because her behavior before we left was quite foreboding.

If this is ever used for review: wisper voices only. If you are loud, cry or whine you have to leave and can't come back. It is going to get very dark and then when the lights come on, it will be loud. We can only sit in the seats that match the tickets. Also, preview most of the acts on YouTube so the kid is ready


Quinn's painting today was entitled "Alliston Wonderland" as opposed to "Alice in Wonderland".... Wait.... Could this be a future roller derby name?

Ack, it was so hard going on this trip without the kids.... But what a great experience walking casually onto the plane unencumbered.
