Sarah had a new trick up her sleeve tonight!!
Typically when I come home with her in the car, I get out and gather everything that I need to carry into the house, then I unbuckle her and get her out. Since we are now in the independence stage, she prefers to climb out herself instead of having me carry her, which by the way, I am thankful for because my hands are usually full! Well, tonight she jumped out of her carseat, looked at me, and then hurdled over the center console to get in the drivers seat....
22 months old and ready to drive a car!
Well, this was funny for about the first minute, but everytime I tried to grab her, she would jump over the console to the other side of the car. Thank God I had the keys, because she hit the lock to keep me from getting her twice......If the neighbors were watching they had to be hysterical....I was running around the car like a lunatic...in heels no less!
After I finally thought I had her cornered.....what did she do you ask....she jumped to the third row seating where she thought I could never get her....
Mommy had the keys in her hand and hit the hatch....BUSTED.....game over!
She screamed as I pulled her out of the car and then stood in our laundry room clutching the door because she wanted to go back out and play in the car!!!
Can you say MELTDOWN? Well, mini meltdown....it was over in about 2 minutes, but only because we were having Spaghetti for dinner and when she saw the noodles....the tears miraculously went away!! Good little Italian Girl....pasta works every time!
Now For The Treats!
A treat for Sarah....her new costume! Thought we would give you a little Halloween Preview.....just the back....not the front, you will have to hold out for that!
A treat for me....while digging in the basement for more fall decorations I found lots of goodies that I had forgotten about! It was like going shopping in your own house....and everything was free!! The mantle is finished, but I couldn't get a picture of the whole thing....it looked to far away, so this little section will have to do...I think you get the idea...it screams "Autumn"
My find of the night..... this old vase.....but it was broken....the back was cracked and a big chunk of the pot was missing, typically I would throw it out, but I started thinking....not so fast, maybe I could still use this...so I strategically placed it so the broken piece was not visible and filled it with the white pumpkins....WALA!!! This totally made my night!
So, I got Tricked and I got a Treat.....and it isn't even October!!
