Top 5 Laughs

I took last week off from the Saturday Top 5 Laughs Bloghop, and I missed writing and remembering the funny things that happened during our week. So today I'm linking up again with Melissa from The Mommyhood Chronicles. Here are my laughs for the week:

1. I brought home a big bucket of pretzels from BJs last weekend. Dan was in the kitchen getting something when Stephanie wondered in and caught a glimpse of the bucket. She shrieked with delight and said "Daddy! Stephanie eat pretzels! And watch football! Yay!" The last time we had eaten one of these giant pretzel buckets was during the Super Bowl, which she remembered. So in her mind, pretzels will forevermore be associated with football. We got a laugh out of that, and Dan was pretty proud that his girl wanted to watch football.

2. On Monday I went out to dinner with my blogger friends. We met at Baby Gators Den's house, which was so nice because we didn't have to deal with trying to find a restaurant, ordering, splitting the bill, etc. So she was awesome enough to offer up her house. There were only 5 of us this time, and we all sat around the table laughing and talking. I don't really remember the specific things we talked about, but I do know I spent pretty much the whole night laughing. I love having this awesome group of blog friends!

3. On Wednesday I put Stephanie in for her nap. We did our usual routine of books, cuddles, kisses and I Love Yous. I left her room, shut the door and started washing lunch dishes. Two minutes later I heard her crying her little heart out. Not a tantrum cry, but a sad cry. I ran in and asked her what was wrong. She said "Mommy, you love me a million billion." I had told her I loved her, but not that I loved her a million billion, which is our tradition. I melted, scooped her up, covered her in kisses and told her I loved her a million billion.

4. Stephanie loves to kiss and hug Joseph. He's incredibly grabby lately, so he's been wrapping his little fingers around her hair every time she moves in for the hug. She has been working on scooting away before he can get her hair, or I put it in a pony so it's harder for him to get. (Believe me, I know how much it hurts when he pulls my hair!) Yesterday when he was in exersaucer, instead of her hair he grabbed her shirt and wouldn't let go. She sighed exasperatedly and said "Mommy. Now he has my shirt." And sighed again. I love how she perfectly emulates my fed-up tone.

5. Now that she's potty-trained, Stephanie gets up much earlier than she used to. Instead of 7:30-8 it's more like 6-6:30. The other day I tried to convince her to go back to bed because it was still night. She looked at me and said "But Mommy, it's not night-night because the lights are on!" She then proceeded to go over to the window, lift the blind and show me that the light (the sun) was on. Ok kid, you win.

I hope you enjoyed this week's laughs! If you blog and want to write about your funny week, head on over to Melissa's page and link up!

Have a wonderful weekend!
