My awesome friend Kelsey hooked us up with some tickets to Disney on Ice last night, so Kate and I went. When I told her it would be just the two of us, she asked with concern, "But where is Faith going to live?"
We talked about what characters we might see there, and when I mentioned the Little Mermaid, Kate insisted on taking her Little Mermaid panties. No, not wearing them. She wanted to bring them, so the Little Mermaid could watch too. I suggested she at least put them in a bag, and handed her a Tinker Bell bag. She came back downstairs with the bag packed. The contents? Little Mermaid panties, another pair of generic panties, chap stick, and 2 sets of leg warmers. That's my girl.
When the show started, Mickey and Minnie were the first ones out. Kate waved to Minnie for a full 3 minutes. We had purchased some nachos, simply because I had $6.50 burning a hole in my pocket. Kate had a nacho about 3/4 of the way to her mouth when the Princesses came out on the ice. The nacho was frozen in place, her mouth still hanging open. The nacho only finally moved when the now human Beast whipped Belle up into an amazing lift, and Kate began to clap ecstatically (nacho still in hand), flinging cheese sauce all over. She resumed eating at the intermission.
I wish I could have watched Kate's face during the performance, but she was on my lap the whole time. (she is still not quite heavy enough to hold down the seat on those flip up chairs) But I'm quite certain she enjoyed it. Thanks Kelsey!

Kate now sings the little mermaid "Ahhh ahh ahh..." song every time she puts on her panties. She will pull down her pants to show them to anyone. I certainly didn't teach her that. I wish I could blame it on Kevin, but he's out of the country. :(
The other day, Cinderella was feeling a bit sad because Kate always picks the Little Mermaid. Kate whips off her PJ's and diaper, shakes her booty a bit, and rather coquettishly asks the Cinderella panties: "You like my bum?" It was hard to stifle my snickering as Cinderella replied that she did, indeed, like Kate's bum.
So Kate told her, "You be a good girl, Cindewewa" (Kate has trouble with r's and l's. This could be bad because I really want to name my next child Raul (No, I'm not pregnant). But I digress), "and tomorrow you can be on my bum."
Cinderella can hardly wait.

Mike had to work most of the time he was there, but he and a group of co-workers did get to visit some ruins on their last day.
He got a lot of great shots of the ruins and the countryside, but, unfortunately, the only close up of Mike was him testing out an ancient commode. Nice.

The Little Mermaid panties have been Kate's favorites by a long shot, but she only has 3 pair. I tried to find more, but alas, there were none in her size. So we settled for Tinkerbell. Kate's never seen Peter Pan, but hey, she hadn't seen The Little Mermaid either. So today we busted out Tinkerbell for her maiden voyage. Kate slipped them on, then proceeded to introduce Tinkerbell to the family.
"Tinkerbell, this is my sister, Faith. That's Sam the Dog. Tinkerbell, you need to stay right on my bum, ok? You just hold still, and I won't go pee pee on you."
I don't think Tinkerbell would still look so confident if she could chat with the now soaking wet Little Mermaid...

Kate had me laughing so many times today, I have to record them all so I don't forget! I love 2 year olds!
She started off the morning telling me how coow everything was. "Dat's weawy coow, Mom." (really cool)
I tried following her into the bathroom to provide moral support as she tinkled, but she said, "Don't come in, Mommy. I need to be privacy."
On the way home from swim lessons, she looked SO sleepy. I told her we needed to get her home to take a nap, to which she emphatically replied: "No, I not tired. I just yawny."
We were singing "Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam" and she was singing weird nonsense words. I asked what she was doing. She said she was singing in Spanish.
Right after we finished our FHE activity, she said, "I want to be all nakey, then I can eat some ice cream!" What?!
We were walking outside this evening as it was getting dark. Kate said she was scared because it was dark. Then she spotted a young man in the distance. She pointed at him and said, "Him's not scared, cause him's a man. Him can save me. Him's gonna say "Urrrrrrrr," like dat, and scare the monster away and save me."
"I not one, I two! I very two!"
Love my girls!

In the dark, she just looked like a pile of clothes! I wish I could just fall asleep anywhere like that. Kate is just cracking me up more and more everyday. As I speak, she is licking her finger and adjusting her hair. I've never done that to her! Where does she learn this stuff? Here are some of her latest comments that keep me laughing:
Daddy has hairy arms. He's a good man.
Girls don't eat meat.
My bum's not working! (while trying to go potty)
I started putting big girl panties on Kate a few days ago and she is doing great! I finally discovered what works. They have to be panties with some character on them. (Elmo, the little mermaid, etc). This character says to Kate (in my voice) "Oh Kate, please don't go pee pee on me!" And suddenly, what couldn't be done with bribes of candy and toys, is done! My favorite part is that she often holds conversations with her panties, doing her voice and the character's voice. Yes, this may again lead to social problems later in life, but for now I love it :)
