Just one of those days...

*****DISCLAIMER****** What you are about to read are actual events done by a TWO YEAR OLD*****************************************************
I have been craving tomato basil soup from La Madeleine's for a week now. Today, I decided to look up the recipe and sure enough they were all over the Internet. I was lucky that we had all the ingredients. I finished it up and ate a bowl. . . . or two. It was great. Not quite the same but I was satisfied. I had tons left overs so I started to put it away. I made it to a plastic bowl to put in the fridge and that was as far as I got. It sat there on the counter for a while. Well, a while UNTIL Reagan saw it. I went off to pick up her room because that was on my to do list for the day and it was getting close to five. I went in there for about five minutes when I realized how quiet everything was. I stuck my head out of the room and saw Todd sitting at the computer right where I had left him. Oh, but then I heard it! This sloshing sound. As I walked in extreme slow motion I saw what could only be described as PANIC. My sweet little girl was sitting on the CARPET with my big bowl of tomato soup. She had both hands in there just sloshing around and she was having the time of her life. I can't really remember what I yelled but my point was made. The sweet princess backed away from the bowl and stood up. She had it all over her and my CARPET. She was crying. . . I was yelling. Then I started yelling at Todd for not noticing what was going on right behind him. I used all the carpet spray I had.
**Don't worry all has been forgiven and all we have left is the pink/coral reminder on the CARPET as a memento of the occasion

On a funnier note. . .
At school today Todd's class was answering questionnaires for Mother's Day. Later that evening Todd looked at me and said, "Mommy let's talk about wub (love). Why do you wub me"? I said a few things and then responded with a question for him. "Why do you love mommy"? Todd answered, "I wub you because I'm CRAZY!" He said this while sticking his tongue out, shaking his head side to side and saying, "LLLLLLLLLLLL!" ...an answer only Todd could give.
