Crazy About Mandarins

You were waiting patiently while Momma washed the lunch dishes.

You were all clean.

Your highchair was all clean.

Momma was just rinsing off the final dishes.

Momma turned to talk to you.

And she laughed.

And laughed.

And laughed.

Why did Momma laugh at you, honey?

It's because you are smart.




You grabbed the can of mandarin oranges from the table.

Momma had pushed them far away from you.

But not far enough.

You love them so much you ate almost the entire can.

In one day.

In one simple lunch setting.

It is amazing how they manage to get at things when they really want them.
Hope she doesn't get a bellyache or diaper rash from all those yummy oranges!

That is so cute! I wish My E. would eat fruit.
Oh, and about the one income, the guilt, the thinking about getting a job- I know exactly what you mean. Regardless, go get your pedi and your hair done, it will make you feel like a million bucks. Trust me, I just went throught the same thing.

I LOVE the pics!! So many little expressions! I do believe a couple have a little "ornery" look to them.?
Hope when we see her next she'll let us give her a lot of hugs.
