One Year Old and Chocolate Ice Cream

If you ask Sadie how old she is this is the response you get!


Of course if you ask her how old she is in public, all bets are off.

We've had a long week! With all the rain we haven't been able to spend very much time outside walking (when there are breaks in the rain we go out, and have found that Sadie will puddle stomp with, or without her boots on) and Sadie is going a little stir crazy.

Last night I realized that there is a drastic difference between giving Sadie a few bites of ice cream and giving Sadie a few bites of ice cream with chocolate in it. When Sadie has ice cream we usually don't see any noticeable difference in how she acts. After sharing Mommy and Daddy's mint cookie ice cream after dinner (and they were tiny bowls she was sharing out of) she went wild. She spent an hour running, non stop, back and forth across the living room and Nani and Grumpa's squealing! When she was put into bed half an hour later than usual (and she usually crashes if she gets put in bed after 7:30) she sat back up and grinned...

And that was when I knew we were in for a long night...

Aaah, the lessons to be learned by young parents. I love it. haha

Reminds me, last Friday was some kid's birthday. His mom sent brownies to school. Kay came home totally frazzled from twenty wound-up kiddos.
