A day in the life of London.....

Since I've been so sick, I haven't really been up to taking care of my kids that much. I've been basically toughing it out at the gym and then coming home and collapsing. I've been coughing so much that I feel like my ribs are thankfully, my mom took the kids so I could literally try to get a wheezing work out in. Unfortunately, my mischievous little girl was full of it today. Here is her day in a nutshell 1. Yell at mom until she does my hair the way I WANT it! 2. Climb on boxes to the top shelf of Aunt Libby's closet to get a doll. 3. Hide from Mimi in the closet behind clothes. 4. Change outfit 5. Pee in toilet and change panties for fun. 6. Try out every bed (crib) in the house until I fall asleep. 7. Wake up when phone rings and go pee.....and change panties for fun. 8. Go to sleep on couch and yell at Mom, Mimi, and Poppa to be quiet while still asleep. 9. Change outfit. 10. Steal an entire ROW of butterscotcheroos and lick all the chocolate off. 11. Change panties for fun and go potty. 12. Take off all my clothes and stand on Madden's walker....while he is in it. 13. Go potty and yell at mom that I have diarrhea and need some yogurt. 14. Sneak crackers in bed. 15. Yell at mom to say, "Thanks for tucking me in bed!" Yes, believe it or not, this was SOME of her day. I didn't mention that she reminded that her birthday is almost here about twenty times. She also tried to sit on Madden and got him to lick her face. Sigh....This too shall pass....

That's right folks, London and her mom have Walking Pneumonia. Sorry for the lack of updates. I've got to be honest, we don't feel like doing too much. So, look forward to an update sometime this week when our antibiotics kick in.

It's time for an update you say?

Okay, fine. I've been a little distracted...a little tired....and maybe a little lazy. Since Christmas was so far away, I better tell about that. We went to G Simmons' house for the festivities and had a glorious time of feasting and presents. We have become a massive group as you can see. Every year Santa comes to my grandparents and London went crazy. I mean, excited crazy, where she hovered around him the whole time even after her turn was up. I was glad that my Uncle David was there to feed Madden while I kept the spastic kiddo in check. It was so fun to have a little body who believed in Santa. We slept at my parents' house and London was soooo excited that she couldn't sleep. Since Tyler, my brother-in-law, Brad, and sister, Olivia stayed up until4:30 a.m. playing Wii, they were somewhat delirious at 6:00 when London woke up. In fact, Brad slept most of the present opening and probably through the traditional morning picture. I guess he was really tired....however, Tyler being used to the lack of sleep was just fine. London got mostly princess stuff including a crown, wand, and high heels. She's been walking around the house saying, "Boppy Boo!" to almost anything. I'm pretty sure everyone enjoyed their presents. My mom and dad got all of us furniture pieces for which we are all thrilled! Tyler and I had a budget of $50 for each other. I spent about $150 and Tyler went over.....I have no idea how much. I did get another iPod (Yes I know it's my fifth one. I don't know why they break, Okay?!), he got my a Dooney & Bourke purse, and loads and loads of jewelry and perfume. Such a good man. Since the holidays are pretty family packed and busy, London continually missed her afternoon nap. In fact and Christmas day she threw a tantrum so monumental while in the car that when we got to his grandparents street she passed out. Soooo.....I stayed in the car while Tyler said his "Merry Christmas's." She is still refusing to take naps. This picture was taken after she ran to her room covering her face because Daddy was making her lay down. Well, at least she fell asleep that way. I have had it with these terrible twos. I wish she would go back to the "Madden" stage. So sweet and happy, Sigh. Our New Year's was uneventful. We were at my parents until 10:00 when I got too tired. We came home and I was asleep at 11:00 p.m.....Tyler was awake playing the Wii. This is our holidays in a nutshell. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! Stick with those resolutions!
