have to take a break from flooding news. it is just too terrible. anyone needing relief in the form of polar opposite geography (i.e. the frickin' desert), give me a jingle (see the "call me" button).
so, this is sophie's morning today, june 13, 2008:
6:30 a.m. wakes, screaming "DOGGIE! DOGGIE! COCO!" mommy comes in and rescues the baby from the evil crib.
6:31 a.m. finds "coco," who is actually "paco." yes, we adopted a dog; no, i am not following my personal mantra of "a dog does not make for a perfect childhood..." i got him by trading him for a head of organic lettuce.
7:00 a.m. refuses first, second and third breakfast offered; holds out for chocolate milk instead. throws first of many screaming tantrums for unknown reasons.
7:30 a.m. demands that elmo is put on the tv IMMEDIATELY.
7:45 a.m. demands that blue's clues is put on the tv IMMEDIATELY.
7:50 a.m. demands that thomas the tank engine is put on the tv IMMEDIATELY.
7:52 a.m. demands that elmo is put on, again, IMMEDIATELY.
7:55 a.m. throws second tantrum when mommy refuses to change the dvd.
**plays in the playroom quietly for a bit, mainly entertaining herself by chasing paco around a table.**
9:00 a.m demands another chocolate milk; throws screaming tantrum when banana is offered instead.
9:15 a.m. goes into gus' room and throws all books within reach on the floor.
9:20 a.m. puts rubber duckies into paco's water dish; gets time out.
9:21-9:30 a.m. throws screaming tantrum in evil crib.
(9:21-9:30 a.m. mommy finally gets a chance to get dressed.)
9:45 a.m. goes outside with paco
10:15 a.m. comes inside with paco; turns over paco's water dish on purpose while wearing gus' shoes.
10:16 a.m. gets planted in front of elmo, again, while mommy washes gus' shoes.
10:45 a.m. sophie is offered originally-refused banana and gives it to paco instead; mommy tells sophie she is going back to work full-time.
11:00 a.m. we go to the co-op; have to force paco into the back of the car (apparently he's afraid of cars).
11:30 a.m. return from co-op; sophie scored an organic gala apple while there and thus refuses to eat lunch.
11:35 a.m. sophie gives paco rest of apple; paco has to stay outside afterwards.
12:00 p.m. sophie is in her evil crib for a nap that she refuses to take; chooses to spend time screaming "DOGGIE! DOOOOOGGGGGGIIIIEEEEE!!! COCO! COCO! CCCCOOOOCCCCOOOOOOO!"
12:30 p.m. mommy puts paco in sophie's room and closes door. silence.
