Threenager Transition

While Persephone still takes naps at daycare, she's dropped her nap on the weekends.  This used to be my favorite time...I love naps and I got to cuddle with her.  I guess they're a thing of the past.

Now that she's no longer napping on the weekends, she's turning into a real "Threenager".  Full on, cranky, whiny, testing-the-limits girl.  Hardy got on to Persephone and myself twice this weekend for fussing back and forth.  At one point he sent us both to our rooms, respectively.  Then Persephone started crying for me (because Daddy was being the "mean" one) and he had to remind her to be quiet when in time out.  I thought I was being well behaved, then he came and snatched my phone.....

I think it's like bickering back and forth with your BFF.  I'm right, she's wrong, yet she's defiant and then I'm angry which continues the vicious cycle.

I remember posting on Facebook over a year ago about Persephone and the terrible two's and I had so many responses from people saying "Just wait until she's three" or "Three is much worse".  Haha, you guys were right...

Still I love her to pieces and we are probably to blame for most of her snobby-ness.  She definitely has her sweet moments that make us LOL, tear up and even pout sympathetically.  We sure do love you silly girl!

She's got us wrapped

This evening after I picked up Persephone from daycare, she went on a full  alligator tear cry about missing Disney World and wished she could have stayed....she didn't want to leave.  Well Hardy and I never want to leave.  I guess this is what happens when you breed a Disney-loving-kid.

Disney Movie Club!

Do you love Disney movies like I do?  
Are you a member of the DMC?  

Well...what are you waiting for?  Hardy and I joined in 2007 and have never looked back!  To become VIP status you just have to purchase 4 full price movies within a 2yr period.  After that you can cancel if you like.

But the discounts are pretty awesome.  Usually right now we can buy 1 movie at regular price and get any other movies within the same order for 60% off!

The club offers movies you don't generally find in stores anymore.  Plus you get first offers on pre-orders for new releases!  Once a month they send you an offer via mail and email for a "featured title".  You can decline the offer if you choose to, no obligation.  And if you receive a move you don't want or forgot to decline, you can return it!

They sell both DVD and Blu-ray options.  Check it out!

Happy New Year!

Well it's been a while since I've posted...I just haven't had much to blog about I suppose.

We had a nice Christmas.  My brother and sister in law were kind enough to help haul off some well overdue "donation" toys to Goodwill for us prior to the holidays.  All I did was make room for all the new junk she was going to get.  I'm glad I did it though, I didn't realize how much crap we were hoarding.  Most of the stuff she never even touched anymore.

New Years Eve we spent with our friends, Shannon, Teddy and their daughter Olivia.  We set off fireworks around 9:30pm and Persephone kept saying "it's just like Disneeee wold"  I love to hear her say that.

We went home a little before midnight because she was getting tired.  I love to see her and Olivia play with one another it's adorable.

Mid-January myself and three co-workers went to Orlando for a users conference.  It was actually pretty fun.  The first night there, Tabitha and I (who shared a room) played Heads Up.  I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.  Even now I can re-watch the ridiculous videos and bust out in laughter.  It's good to laugh..you know?  Like it's just good for the soul I think.

I learned a lot about the program we use at work and some tips/tricks.  One night we went out to eat at Buca di Beppo, it was within the mall our hotel was attached to.  Family-style Italian dining...super duper delicious.  But I have never felt so miserable after a meal as I did that night.  I don't know if it was the pasta or what...but I think we were all pretty bloated hahaha!

The last night of the conference, we took one of our co-workers to the airport and then my BFFLADYI Tabitha and I headed over to Magic Kingdom!  They were open until midnight that night so we got a good 6.5hrs out of the quick trip!  We lucked out because the crowds were pretty darn low.  We even got to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in less than 30min!

I was back at work for a week and then...Hardy, Persephone and I took our own trip to Disney.  More on that in the next post!
