postheadericon We had to Boo someone

After hearing briefly about this "booing" thing, where you essentially ding-dong-ditch someone and leave a treat behind, I knew I had to do it with Lyla.  So I did a real quick run to the store and got a couple little things and we went to 2 neighbors.  It didn't go as planned. First neighbor came home while we were in their driveway (we didn't know they weren't home) so we had to back out of the driveway with our cups behind our backs.  Second neighbor was coming out of the garage to play right as we were walking up but they didn't see us so we were ok to go home and try again later.  We did manage to hit both houses later that night after pumpkin carving.  Lyla thought it was fun but really wanted to see then get the treat.

 This is Lyla's super happy and excited face

Next year will be awesome.  Gonna be way more prepared.


postheadericon Lyla in the Trunk

We had a whirlwind crazy experience on Saturday. We were all in the front yard playing and Todd was unloading a bunch of stuff from his trunk.  When everything was removed Lyla jumped into the trunk and was messing around.  Todd asked her several times to get out but of course she didn't listen.  Jokingly he pretended to close the trunk by tapping the hood and to his immediate surprise it latched closed.  (disclaimer: the full time Lyla was in the trunk was under 10 seconds) We both looked at each other and he immediately ran to the front of the car to unlatch it.  The thing is, Lyla completely FREAKED out being in the trunk.  I freaked a little too.  I know it was an extremely short time but boy it left an impact on her.  She jumped out when it opened and ran straight to Todd and started swingin'.  She was so mad and scared.  After all was settled down the funny commentary from Miss Lyla started to come. 
She has been going through several stages of "recovery"


Lyla started with telling me, my mom, my sister and anyone else that would listen that her Daddy locked her in the trunk of the car.  It was pretty funny.  It was always something like "Daddy, remember when you locked me in the trunk?" or "Guess what? My Daddy locked me in the trunk of his car!"  Like she was reminiscing.  

This turned into her reliving the event. "Mommy, Daddy locked me in the trunk. It was dark but there was a little bit of light in there. I was so scared"

Then she really wanted to hear the "story" of events.  She climbed into bed with me and said "Mommy, tell me the story again about how Daddy locked me in the trunk. Could you hear me? Was I hitting the hood? What did Daddy do?"

She continues to INSIST it was on purpose.  We tell her constantly it was an accident and her response is always the same "It was not an accident"

It has been 5 days now and there is no letting up in sight.  She is so funny.  I love her and the quirky way she is about things.  She makes me smile everyday.  Even an event like this makes me smile.  I can't wait to see what she says next.


postheadericon Kid Quote of the Day

Lyla: Mommy I went to the park and saw the cuuuuutest doggie.  It was black and curly and sooooo cute. It was a ploodo. (poodle) I can't believe myself mommy it was the cuuuuuutest ever. I want one can we get one? i can't believe myself.

postheadericon Back to school night for Lyla

Last Thursday night was the annual Back to School Night/ Spaghetti Dinner at Lyla's preschool Fullerton Community Nursery School.  This is a great parent participation preschool.  I love that we get to be involved in her early education.  She loves learning and loves her school.  Here are some pictures of the event. Stella got in on the action as well.

The reading nook is one of Lyla's favorite places

Stella enjoyed the reading nook, the discover table and the play house area

I really love this school so much and how interactive it is.  Can't wait for Stella's turn.


postheadericon It's the first "yeah, i saw that": motorcyclists

It's a new feature called
Yeah, I saw that!!

 For quite a while now me and my sister, Tracy, will constantly call each other and say "YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT I SAW!"  These are always people and they are always doing something outrageous.  Sometimes funny, sometimes scary but always eye catching.

So for the very first ever "Yeah, I saw that!" I will tell you about 2 separate motorcycle incidents that were about a week apart.  I spend a lot of time commuting and I see some amazing things on the freeway.  These are just a couple.

The first was a motorcyclist talking on his cell phone in rush hour traffic.  You say, Kami, how is that possible? And I say that it really isn't.  Here in Cali it is the law that you must wear a helmet while on a motorcycle.  It is also the ONLY state where you can lane share, which is when the motorcyclist can drive between the lanes of traffic.  This guy had on a helmet. He was also lane sharing.  He had the phone up to the side of the helmet and appeared to be shouting while whizzing through traffic. 
The big question here is how do you think the conversation went.  
Something like this perhaps?

motorcyclist: what?
caller: what? there is a lot of noise!
motorcyclist: what?
caller: i can't here you!
motorcyclist: what?

See what I mean.  Totally pointless and dangerous to boot.
First thing I did was call Tracy and say "you wouldn't believe what I just saw!"

The second event was a motorcyclist eating a taco while driving.  I. Swear. To. You.  This guy was driving down the street eating a taco through the hole in the front of his flip up helmet.  A TACO!!! I mean really?  There was lettuce flying everywhere, including onto my windshield.  I just can't explain the comic relief this guy provided me for the ride home.  Not really sure how much of the taco he actually got to consume but at least he made me laugh. And of course I called Tracy to tell her.  Oh the things we see.

Well that's all for now.  You may see guest posts on this, especially from Tracy.  
I can't wait to see something awesome!
