Wedding video, take 3

I thought I'd better hurry and get Ting Ting to say some of her cutest words for me before she started pronouncing them correctly.

Something tells me, though, that years from now I'll still be wearing a "winsoup" to the beach.

Glad I could help

Every so often, I like to check out the "referring" URLs to get an idea how people find this blog.

Last week someone searched Google for this:

"Will my homeowners insurance cover a hole in a roof caused by a squirrel and causing a leak"

Um . . . . no. Sorry.

See, I TOLD you that was a helpful bit of trivia!

My head is spinning

The other morning at breakfast, Ting Ting was trying to remember something. She screwed up her face, tapped her cheek with her index finger and said, "hmmmmmmmm."

Still, she couldn't remember. But she made me laugh when she expressed her dismay.

"Mama, I thought all around it until I was dizzy."

Polka Dot Princess

Again, we're digging through the archives here. One day last spring, Ting Ting was dying to wear this dress she got last summer from Cousin Sam. I helped her get it on, then left to finish dressing myself while she picked out her shoes and socks.

A few minutes later, she came in to show me her accessories. She had picked a pair of shoes I didn't think about immediately, but they were a perfect match because they were brown with a touch of pink, both colors of dots in the dress. She had on pink socks. And she had found a little purse that is white with a pink butterfly.

But the best part? When she chose her "puppet" to take to day care that day, she picked out a dalmatian -- yes, a spotted dog.

The child has much more fashion sense than her mother ever will.
