Today my two year old proceed to get her hands all lubed up with lotion and then put handprints all over the front windows. Then she asked if she could wash the windows.

This is Juliet’s version of Hound Dog (which she sings with as much attitude and funk as possible.)

So Craig and I officially have reservations for a weekend away!!! Yay! Although we do get out more than the average couple (thanks to the ever present babysitters!) we haven’t had a solid block of time away since Juliet was born. And believe me… as much as I love our house, I’m dying to leave [...]
