A work in progress...this is our living room, it's vaulted so Mummy and Daddy needed some help getting it painted. There is dust and muck all over the place and the painters are here. They had to do a lot of patching and priming...and today they started on the painting. We had mauve walls...they were gross...now we are getting 'blonde' walls. They painted the ceiling first...pached and primed about a thousand places on the walls an ceiling! Daddy says we wont have to paint again for TEN more years! Mummy thinks he's exagerrating.
The painters are very good, they covered everything up and blocked off the kitchen with sheets of plastic so the dust wont get everywhere!
It was a big big big job.

Can't you guys understand the meaning of the word PRIVACY! I've been doing this by myself for a few months now, I just need you to get me undressed,put me up here, wipe me when I'm done and put my pull-up back on...oh, I guess I do need you after all!
My first Easter...
Talk about fun! I spent the days with Mummy and Daddy over at our neighbors house, we had a big Italian Easter lunch with the most yummy lasagne and then all the kids went outside to hunt for eggs...I got the idea really quickly and filled my basket! Daddy was helpful, but I spotted those eggs like a hawk. Mummy bought me some a few weeks ago so I went into training...Daddy was surprised that I could hold my basket, walk through the grass AND collect eggs all at the same time...c'mon Daddy, I'm a girl! We multi-task!
The best thing was finding out that the eggs had m&m's inside them...little candy coated drops of chocolate love!mmmmmm...I had a few, then they mysteriously disappeared?? I liked m&m's but I haven't seen anymore of them for weeks??
Well...it took a week to get the basement situation sorted out...but then the painters came to tackle the living room. Our house is a bit messy and it looks like we just moved in!
I just soak my cares away with a nice long bubble bath

So...while the basement was being dried out Mummy took me to our local coffee shop to pick up breakfast and coffee for Daddy. I decided to try out my running skills and tripped over my feet and hit my head square on the brick facade of the counter! Needless to say I screamed very loudly and Mummy rushed me to the doctors where I recieved my first 'butterfly stitches'
My head hurts and I am not feeling the best.
Mummy made me brush my teeth...they hurt too! I had a tylenol shooter and a long nap!

A little Disaster!
Spring is here, and coupled with the promise of longer brighter and warmer days. We have been blessed with April showers...or shall I redefine...April 'torrents of doom'!
Yesterday a wicked storm passed through and we got HAMMERED..again! Mummy and Daddy were very upset. The power went out and our sump pump failed...results: a basement with 2" of standing water! Mummy called the emergency clean up people who came out pretty quickly, they ripped up all the carpet and took away the pad. We have to wait to see if the carpet needs to be replaced or if it can be saved.
Daddy went to Home Depot and bought a generator. He said that there were other Daddy's there in the same 'boat'...Mummy had to laugh.
Our neighbors got a bit luckier than us, the family to the left said they just caught it in time. Daddy thinks we have a bit of a landscaping issue and we need to re-grade a part of the yard.
I guess our house is crazy, all the furniture from downstairs is now in the living and dining rooms, it looks like we just moved in!
Mummy and Daddys drank a whole bottle of wine and when one of the guys cleaning up asked where Daddy was from he said IOWA! Daddy's from West Virginia...must have been pretty good wine huh!
Tomorrow will be really fun!
I'm pretty proud of my accomplishments yesterday, the storm was a bit scary, but I was very brave and pooped on the potty IN THE DARK! Now thats incredible!
