The girls had their first trip to the dentist yestderday. Kimmee cried. They ended up polishing her teeth while I held her. I'm beginning to think that this "recommend the dentist visit at two years old" is a pot shot from the M.D.'s to the D.D.S.'s. Caroline rather, was very tense throughout the visit, but actually did very well. No crying. Lot's of four-year-old bravery. Afterwards the doc gave the girls a coin purse, a sticker, an award for no cavities, a kid-sized spin brush, and a t-shirt (with his advertisement on the back, of course). The office was also nicely equipped with brand new toys, a video game system, a t.v., rocking horse, kid castle and dora and princess lounge chairs. Looks like I picked the right dentist the first time :)

To help me not committ a crime that would involve jail time, I removed Kim to her bedroom. Once I finished removing 129 or so little pieces of crayon out of my decrepit couch I peeked in the bedroom. I'll give you one guess what Kimmee was doing; Getting into trouble AGAIN! All of the Pull-ups that were stacked neatly on the shelf (a shelf that she had to climb 3 feet to get to) were unceremoniously thrown down on the ground.
Tonight Randy saw something on our DirecTV guide that concisely describes Kim to a "T."

THE HIGHLIGHT my sick week? Kimmee learned how to sing the final part of the SpongeBob Squarepants theme. She can say very few things clearly, but the week that Nickelodeon chose to program back to back SB episodes rather than the girl's favorite Nick Jr. inadvertantly taught my impressionable two-year-old a theme song that I had rather not have had her learn for another few years. Oh Well - At least she's not singing "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails.

To solve the problem, I broke out the new sewing machine, sitting in the kitchen corner collecting dust, and learned how to thread the darned thing. WHY OH WHY do they have to make threading a sewing machine so gosh darned difficult? Now I understand why the Amish do everything by hand. They're not trying to cling to the simpler code of living, they're just frustrated with the freakin' machines!
So after 2 hours of much frustration, I finally get the machine going. I went to Grandma Pete's to steal some remnants for some bean bags, which she had, and then proceeded to lesson one of sewing in home-ec. I finished two bags, one just wouldn't work; the girls would fight over it and break the homely sack of legumes.
Now I think that my bean bags are just adorable and should be sold at some high priced retail establishment like Gymboree or Pottery Barn. Well it just so happens there is a asthetic requirement that my bags did not fill. I guess my girls will have to play with my designer remnant bean bags instead. Eat your heart out Versace.

Kimmee is progressing on her potty training, but not at the speed at which I would like (duh). She went no.2 on the potty chair on Tuesday and got so excited while doing it, she jumped up to see what was in the pot before she finished. It was gross, but I had to laugh. I gave her a pez dispenser for the effort.
Caroline is spending the weekend at Grandma Barker's. It's good for her and wonderful for me. I love her so much, but 3 years is just not my favorite age. I wonder how I'll feel about 3 when she's sixteen :).
Andrew is rolling over in his crib now. Just today, he rolled on his back after he woke up and called me into the bedroom to play peek-a-boo with him. When I looked at him in the crib, he was pulling a blanket over his face and then removing it to giggle at me.
If you haven't had a chance to check out my new recipe, look in the upper right hand corner above the picture of Lily. It'll make you laugh.

What a patient almost 4-year-old. I just love her!

And little Andrew just wiggled and giggled
