Weekly Weiners

Dude! Seriously where did this week go?? And as the weeks fly by my kid is getting closer and closer to turning 3! The birthday party invites are done and the details are getting hashed out! So for more weekly winners please visit,

One of the first blogs that I read was Girls Gone Child written by a amazing woman and writer named Rebecca Woolf. I felt so lucky to find her blog when I did. Her little boy is just one day younger than The Phi and many of her struggles mirror my own. Well she has just published a book all about becoming a mother and how important it is for the Mom and the child for the parent to hold on to thier passions in life. I read this book in a matter of hours and it was wonderful. Even the acknowledments made me cry!

We go to this park all the time and they have tennis courts and The Phi loves to watch kids play. When we were this this week a lot of the courts were empty and there are always random tennis balls everywhere. The Phi got to play around for awhile.

She wants to wear these shoes all the time because they are "like Daddy's shows"

The Phi is starting to become more girlie. All on her own and princess dresses and tea parties are all the rage in our house. Seriously though how cute is this? Her and her lamb having tea. And that blue dress. It was mine from one of my Tia's wedding. I must have been a tiny kid because the bodice of this dress was too small for The Phi. I couldn't zip it up on her!

mom dresses up too
And of course Mom has to dress up too!

The Phi is one complex little kid. Here is what she has been carrying aorund everywhere this week. Her new My Little Pony and her new red car. No gender roles here!

These eyes......

In mid-air.

    What cute pics! My favs are the shoe one & the tea party one :) Both precious!

  10. I don't remember princess stuff being so popular before. Is this a new thing (you know, with Disney princess marketing) or were all the girls I knew tomboy-ish?

It had been awhile but Joey recently convinced me to head out on an off-roading adventure. Mostly because the San Berdoo trail ends inside J...
