Salon Toddler

I hate getting my haircut. Last time I let everyone know by having a Class A meltdown. Yesterday Mom and Dad upped the stakes. They promised me a new toy if I would sit to get my haircut without crying.

The haircut started well enough. I had my choice of an airplane, boat, or car. I picked the car of course, because there was another kid in it. I had more time to enjoy the play area. Once the car was vacated and cleaned, Mom tricked me into getting into it by rolling me over in a toy car. Once I was settled into the car with my cape on and the stylist cutting, I pulled a fast one by whining to move over to the airplane.

I was on the verge of tears, but Mom and Dad kept reminding me of the toy at the end. I hated it, but the promise of a new garbage truck was very appealing. So I stuck it out in the car. After we went to the toy store, but they were all out of garbage trucks. I had to pick out a pizza set instead.

I've been really curious about this white tub with a cord under Mom and Dad's bed. So Sunday night, Mom asked me if I want to do a pedicure. Sure! I was set up with the footbath, scrubber, and some fun fizzy tablets to put in the water. What a great end to the weekend of maintenance.

PS - Since Mom and Dad had their way yesterday I had to show them who was boss tonight. I threw my bedtime brown milk on the floor and told them to pick it up. It was quite the showdown. I gave them lots of tears. The standoff only ended when I got concerned they'd take it away.


On an unhappy road.

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
