November 2, 2013 on the living room floor....with kitty


The Halloween Hangover has officially kicked in. It probably didn't help that today I threatened to - and actually did - throw out a piece of Halloween candy from her bucket every time she whined, hit (a 2-piece infraction), or had to be asked to do something more than once. As of game time, she was down 9 pieces of candy. I'm sure between not trying to lose anymore and a very exciting afternoon soccer match, she was just spent. 

I think the kitty decided to get in on the action because it's the one and only time she could get near Eliza without her picking her up and making her pretend she can fly (which should probably be a 3-piece infraction now that I think about it).

September 29, 2013 at Macy's


I took too long trying to pick out some underwear. My bad and yet, my good fortune.

September 7, 2013 in the hallway on the kitty bed


She shoots. She scores. She falls asleep on the kitty bed.

Just when you thought there would be no more posts.......

Eliza had her first soccer game today and played in 105 degree heat. She followed that with a swim party and then was forced to run errands with her mom. She came home and quickly looked for our two new kitties, Matilda and Bella, who hang in the hallway right now while we're out, and decided right then and there that the kitties were dead to her, but their bed, well that was pretty attractive.

May 18, 2013 in the kitchen


I know. It's been a while. And truthfully I was giving up all hope that we would ever have another crash, but I also knew that if today didn't take her down, then nothing would. We started the day with ballet lessons and a pre-recital photo session. Then we went with friends to Eliza's school's carnival, which we walked/scootered to and back and only ate completely processed sugar and carbs for lunch (no protein, mother of the year here admits). Follow that with an afternoon play date and you've got a recipe for a good ol' fashioned random crash.

As this may very possible be my last post, I think it's only fitting that her possible last random crash (well, at least until college I'm guessing), is with her face painted like a sweaty kitten.



Sweet dreams.

December 16, 2012 in the car


It's not that the car is such an unusual spot for her to crash, but this time it was more about the fact that she fell asleep in the middle of writing her life story.

November 17, 2012 on the living room floor


Today was cold and rainy and the last soccer game of the season was cancelled. The team's soccer party went as planned though and the girls got their very first trophy. Eliza came home from the party, crashed on the floor, woke up a few minutes later to cuddle with her trophy and went right back to sleep in the same spot. 

I guess rainy days and soccer parties always get her to go down. 

And I guess I just dated myself by about 35 years with that last sentence.
