1+1=2 ?

So here we are in the days leading up to a certain someone's birthday.  And that certain someone has been the talk of that town lately.  Her curiosity and busy lifestyle has multiplied by the hundreds.  What's this all mean?  That we are in for a ride!!!

We have found Hope drinking water from the dog dish twice now, and a construction worker from next door came to tell me the other day "there is a kid running down the street."  Yep, she was mine...three houses down.  And what is the joy about smearing muffins across your closed eyelids, I'll never know.
Since this blog is my journal of life, I can't help but share a few of these stories so that years from now I can look back....and well....laugh.
 Here are a few of the latest happenings that just so happen to get caught on film.

I was standing in the kitchen and as my nose began to run, I stated out loud "I'm going to have to blow my nose this morning."  I continue to get the girl's breakfast ready and find Hope standing at the corner of the kitchen holding toilet paper.  Oh how sweet, she brought me a tissue to blow my nose on.  Well, it was still attached.
The next adventure brings us to lunch a few days ago. Hope, clearly not hungry, deliberately dumps her water smack dab down her shirt and onto her pants. Me, not happy, begins to scold her and let her know that is not what we do. I make my way into the kitchen and hear her pounding her fork on the table. Beaming her with another dirty look, I ask her to stop. She caulks her arm up with fork in hand. Quick as a whip I give her that "don't you even think about it." So she puts her arm down. I turn to get a towel to clean up the water and within seconds a forks comes flying through the kitchen. Yep, she's got the arm of a major league pitcher. Mad as muffins, her lunch was clearly over and she was escorted away from the kitchen table with some very choice words from her momma!
Guessing she got the message since she was found hiding behind the curtains....
And the fun continues, my friends!  A couple evenings ago all was quiet (a rare moment) so the parents thought Hope and Emma were loving on each other and watching TV.  Well, one of the two was.  The other proudly came up to her momma with a grin, just to show me her new found talent.   Manicures and pedicures!  She had found the polish and managed to open one, and took the liberty to independently add some color to her life.  "Purple, purple," she kept announcing.  Yes,'s purple.

I must admit, I was quiet impressed with our 23 month old's ability to paint her toenails so well.   Her fingernails weren't near as executed.....nor the floor.
So there you have it....the life of Hope Kaylynn.  Never a dull moment.
I recently had a friend, who is expecting their #2, ask me for advise on adding that second one.   Pretty easy to see that I'm not in control these days, so my only answer is what my husband has been saying all along... 1+1 does not equal 2.
