- She hums when she eats.
- She smells everything, including the tissue she used to wipe herself after using the potty.
- She likes to collect lint.
- She likes to drink homemade vegetable broth straight.
- She is easily distracted by talk about robots, dinosaurs (especially T-Rex) and Spider-man. This is the perfect time to comb her hair or brush her teeth.
As a matter of fact, I have found a way to turn her cutesy antics into gold. I submitted this photo to the Messiest Kid Photo Contest at Mom-Blog and it won! Marlie and Me earned a $100 Amazon gift card. We decided that we are going to spend some of it on her little brother or sister.
Anyone watching the Oscars tonight? I am going to tune-in, but I doubt I'll be able to stay up to see the Best Picture award. This year, I've only seen one movie in that category, The Help. For some reason I have no urge to see the remaining nominated films. Entertainment Weekly has a great column making the case for why Bridesmaids and Rise of the Planet of the Apes (two movie I did see and enjoyed immensely) should have been nominated and how the Academy Awards have lost touch with the movie-going population.
