She wanted to sleep with the pumpkin last night.
She cried and crouched down by her bedroom door to cry out "pummmmmmmkin.... want pummmmmmmmmmkin".
It's that kind of crying that really gets me.

The one where she really, really, REALLY, wants something and you know that deep down - somewhere in between thinking about how to score more chocolate and asking to watch more tv - she just knows she isn't going to get it what she is asking for.

I hope all your candy corn laden dreams come true.
Oh yes, and Emmett was flattered by your concerns regarding his recent illegal imprisonment.
No joke: on Monday night SB did a cat-sweep before leaving Bumper's room at bedtime and found the
So those feline offspring of ours either have a back entrance to the bureau or I'm just batshit crazy.
Just don't tell me what your answer would be - okay?
There is a new review up at motherbumper's laboratory - SquidSoap to encourage hand washing! What will they think of next?
