Happy Friday!

Thursday we canceled our playdate and visited Dada at work, as Rita was teething terribly and had had multiple meltdowns before 9am.

She had to scream outside on the front porch.  It was that intense.  She came in quite jolly after letting off her steam.  I should have known it would be a crazy day after this "conversation"...

Rita: Pfffttt! (blowing spit bubbles) "Get out mouth!"(Cute, but words of danger!!)
Me: "Oh Rita! Is your mouth hurting?"
Cue meltdown.
Rita: Screaming and crying.
Me: "Rita, do you want a popsicle?"
Rita: "Pooooooppppppppsicccccccclllllllle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"


But lunch with Dada made life better.

Then we came home and she played with the dishwasher and the pantry.  She had a blast and we got the kitchen pretty spiffy!  After some delicious spaghetti (with hidden veggies!), Dada rocked Rita until she was fast asleep.  So amazing to see how she loves her Dada!

So, buttons?

Just wanted to point-out the three buttons on the right side of this blog and wanted to give you more info so you know what you're getting into when you click those cute buttons!  They are GREAT reads!!  I love finding a new post from any of these authors in my Google Reader.  Hoping to share the joy:
