Brush your teeth!

Been meaning to tell this story for awhile. The other day, I was getting Maddy ready to go out, and trying to brush her teeth. She was sitting on the counter, refusing to open her mouth so I could get the toothbrush in. I was getting upset and frustrated with her because she was being difficult. I got right in her face and tried to let her know I was serious and that there would be consequences if she didn't do what I told her. In the middle of my "scolding", she reaches up with her hand and plugs her nose.

"Mommy, you're stinky!"

Unfortunately, for her, I had not yet brushed my teeth either and still had morning breath. I looked away so I could laugh, but it was really hard to be serious after that!

I Love Rock 'n Roll

We've been playing a lot of Guitar Hero in our house lately. One of the songs Maddy likes to listen and sing to is "I Love Rock 'n Roll". This is how she sings it:

"I love rock n' roll
put another dime in the juicebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with me ..."

The Name Game

This afternoon, Jordan, Maddy and I were talking about their full names. They each know how to spell their first name, but we haven't gotten to their middle names yet. I think it'll be awhile before Jordan can spell Elizabeth!

I asked Maddy if she knew what her full name was, and she said no. I was about to tell her when Jordan walked over to her and whispered something in her ear. Maddy then smiled really big and proudly said her full name out loud.

"Madeline Grapes Nealey!"

(It's Grace in case you didn't know)
