The older Brynlee gets the more she does some things that are...well a little embarassing. Nothing like kids to thrust cold hard reality in your face.

Incident #1- On Thanksgiving, a guy was drinking a diet coke. Brynlee went up to him and told him that he was drinking "Mommy's soda". I explained to her that he could have one too, but she wouldn't accept it. She kept following him around telling him to stop drinking my soda. Eh hmm. You know you have a diet coke addiction when...

Incident #2- On Sunday Brynlee saw an older lady coming into the church building. She loudly proclaims, " There is a big Grandma!". Mortified, Jimmy tried to tell her that she wasn't a BIG grandma. Nope, in Brynlee's mind she was just that. And she continued to call her that all through church.

Incident #3- Since it finally stopped raining, Brynlee and I decided to celebrate. It's been raining for the past week, and for Californians that just won't do. We got our sunshine back today, thank goodness! Anyhow Brynlee and I went to get donuts and then go to the park. We walked into the donut shop and she walked up to the counter and told the lady she wanted " A chocolate donut, please". Ok. Maybe we take her to get donuts too often. I'm not sure a 2 year old should be able to order a donut with such assertiveness. However the donut lady thought she was so cute that she gave us an extra donut for free. :)

So, basically I drink too much diet coke and Jimmy gets Brynlee donuts too often. I'm not sure who to blame for the "big Grandma" comment. It was really strange. There were plenty of other big grandma types there, but she took to this lady I guess. Ah kids!

There's a guy at our Walmart that had an eye patch and he was helping me at customer service. Charlotte wouldn't come over to me because she said she was "afraid of the pirate." I really hoped the guy couldn't hear her because he was really nice and super helpful but oh my dear Charlotte... he's not a pirate!
