Lately Lulu has been totally cracking me up.
She has a really good sense of humour and really loves a good audience.
well sometimes.
the other day we were out and about and as per usual someone was staring and smiling at her.
she looks up at me and says "um mama...(I love when she calls me mama) I really don't like when people look at me"
then later that same day when someone else was looking and smiling at her she announces "I'm really cute".
all-righty then.
While on a bathroom break I was um..reminding her to well...wipe her "tutu".
For some reason we have always referred to her girl bits as her tutu.
Not sure why, as it certainly did cause some confusion when picking out her ballet outfit this fall...but anywho....
She corrects me and says "mommy it's not a tutu it's a she-nis"
okey dokey.
Last night after eating a nice big bowl of bean soup she told me that she had a bit of "gasoline" in her tummy and she might have to toot.
oy vey.
Some of her other phrases are "daddy shOOO!" or "mommy shOOO!" which usually lands her on the naughty step.
Or "mommy I'm full, I think I've had plenty"
I love when she says things like plenty, I apologize, oh dear! and that's lovely.
It's so cute hearing her say such grown up expressions in her sweet little voice.

In other happenings...
While watching the season finale to American Idol the other night, I recorded it so I wouldn't have to watch the commercials.
Just like last year.
Then right at the end when Ryan Seacreast says "and the winner of American Idol is David......" the recording stopped!
I can't believe it happened again.
same thing last year.
But such a tease seeing as he got as far as the first name.
I loved that performance with David A. and One republic.
I can't get that song out of my head.
It's too late to apologize......lal laalllaaaaaa
I'm officially going to try to watch less T.V. now.
Summer is too short to spend it in front of the boob tube.
Well with the exception of So You Think You Can Dance.
Love love love that show..

We all survived yet another bout of the sickies.
Big daddy had a bad sinus infection topped off with allergies.
Lulu also had a cold all week and felt like crap, but was a trooper.
And bonus- now that's she's three can actually take better cold medication that really helped her through the night time.
Me. well I have been fighting off a cold all week.
I think I have done it.
At first sign of that tell tale tickle in the back of my throat I got my ass to my homey. doctor and had a round of acupuncture and got some herbs astragalus, oclonopsis, reishi, borage b, pau daro & ligustruim.
Tastes like hell, but I really think it's doing the trick.
who knows, maybe it's all mind over matter, but I'm going with it because it seems to be working for me so far.

So that's it for now.
There's lots more going on, but I will post about it later.
I'm burning through my me time (while Lulu is nursery school) and I haven't worked out in a few weeks and I'm in desperate need of a good sweat.
Until then, have a great weekend and hopefully it's warm enough to kick back and soak up a bit of sunshine.

I have learned to tack on 3 minutes to any show that I record now.

I love hearing the two-dollar words in the teeny voices, cracks me up.

And you are not the only blogger that happened to wtih Idol. I think for big episodes like finales and premieres they sometimes do that on purpose to please the sponsors and thwart the recorders. Buggers.

all signs point to a gorgeous weekend - too bad I'm at work...

and hey, saw Lulu in a magazine about a vacation! I recognized her immediately because you knwo, she is right - she IS cute!
