Lighten up!

My original dark layout was depressing so I decided it was time for a change. I found this oh-so-cute layout and couldn't resist. Who doesn't love a cupcake? Since I dabble in baking sweet treats it felt relevant. And that bird is just too cute.

I'll leave you today with yet another cute story about my 3 year old. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See has always been one of his favorite books. He has it memorized because we've read it so many times. He also has Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear, although it's not quite as popular.

Yesterday when he got up from his nap he started reciting it. I'm notorious for changing lyrics of songs/plots of stories to make it funny or more relevant to our family. Here is the conversation that ensued:

B: Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you see?
Me: Big One, Big One, what do you see? I see Mommy looking at me. Mommy, Mommy, what do you see?
B: NO! NO!
Me: I see Little One looking at me. Little One, Little One, what do you see? I see...
B: NO! NO! {crossing arms across chest and getting very upset at my modification of the story} It's POLAR BEAR POLAR BEAR WHAT DOES HE SEES! THAT'S WHAT IT IS MOMMY! He sees ANIMALS.
Me: Isn't it brown bear?
B: Yeah, it's brown bear. He's not white. He's not gray. He's not yellow. Like ducks. Or Duck Blankie.

Glad we got that straightened out.
