Amelia gets her way....

The bad blogger Mama is back....

I fully admit to pushing the blog waaaaay onto the back burner for the past month. We've been insanely busy (a 5th birthday, a trip to Kauai for Daddy Jeff and I, a trip to Arizona for the kids with Grandma and Grandpa while Daddy Jeff and I were on the beach, dance lessons, piano lessons, swimming lessons, preschool, two Valentines Day parties, and plain old life, keep us on our toes every single day) and to be honest, sitting down to blog, doesn't always end up on the top of my 'to do' list. I promise to put forth better effort going forward though...

When the kids play together, which they're doing a very nice job of lately, Graham usually decides the game and the rules for the game. Usually, it involved Darth Vader and his crew taking over the Barbie house, but Amelia is just happy to have a willing playmate. Tonight though, Amelia got her way. She has a hair stylist set that she loves and she convinced Graham to play "hair cutter" with her.

I love Graham's expression in this picture-he takes the blow dryer very seriously and does a pretty good impression of the way it actually sounds!
And, on a completely random note, here is a cute quote from a conversation I overheard today.
Amelia:I really want to be a princess when I grow up.
Graham: You can't be a princess, Amelia. You have to have a REAL job!
Amelia: Like what?
Graham: How about you be a clown?
Clearly, Daddy Jeff and I need to do a better job instilling high career aspirations in the two of them! :)
