· We had a lovely afternoon at Riverdale Farm today with petite gourmand and lulu. What a great place. Will do a post on it soon for MBT.

· Cakes is really asserting her independence lately. Her latest trick is to prevent me from holding her hand when we’re outside. Her tactic is to break away and hold her own hand as she struts along. Pretty brilliant actually, don’t you think?

· I think Cakes has OCD: she can’t go by a gate without closing it; she berates McHotty for not putting his shoes away; she gets mad if you leave the screen door open. I’m not complaining.

· What is it about toddlers and crackers? Whenever Cakes catches sight of a cracker she has a fucking fit until she gets one. And god forbid you find yourself at the park with only three crackers left and six vultures circling!

· Anyone else have way too many email addresses? I have six now. Stupid.

· Is anyone else facebooking a little too much?

· I can see the Luminato lights from my bed (it’s nice having something to look at when I can’t sleep). The last couple of nights the CN tower is changing colour and blinking. Is this a permanent thing or part of Luminato? It’s pretty cool actually.

· There are now TWO dirty, dirty ladies over at Hot and Bothered. Check it out!

· There are few things cuter than a toddler trying to blow bubbles, are there!

Not too sure on the OCD thing... if your house is somewhat structured (for example, I suspect you are, or at least were, vigilant about closing gates) then a toddler will pick up on that. As they figure out the world, they use routines to give them structure.

(Or maybe my kid is the same way with gates and doors and shoes, and I don't want to admit she has OCD. One of the two.) :)

If I didn't know where she came from (ahem) I'd think Chicky and Cakes were separated at birth.

And, yes, there are few things as cute as a toddler trying to blow bubbles.

If Cakes has OCD, then WB has it, too. Hey! They could form a support group. Or we could.

Nothing like a toddler with OCD- I knew I liked cakes.

I actually always forget about my facebook account until I get complaining messages from my cousins that my message line has been the same for several days. What a cute little girl you have!

Adorable pix!

Please say that the Boy can be part of your OCD support group. I can list a dozen things that would easy make him a candidate.

Yes. The Cracker thing. Yes!

I think she might just be entering the bossy stage that Pumpkinpie is in. I'm getting ordered and harped at and bossed all over the place these days! So going to write about that soon. As soon as I stop getting annoyed by it and can find it amusing...

And where did she get those curls, anyhow? Sweet.

BUBBLES! (that was B talking)

I think I heard on BT that the lights on the CN Tower are a permanent thing - I'm going out tonight to check them out.

And take advantage of the OCD tendencies, B will join the group if one is to be formed (she feels the need to collect and line up shoes).

Cordy is OCD, too. She has to stop and count anything that she finds. It sometimes takes forever.

Adorable pics of her blowing bubbles!

I was looking at it at the store but I could not get the want out.

OCD, huh? I thought Bee was just being bossy, but you could be on to something.

She is so cute! Well done.

Six email addy's? Ouch. I can't keep up with two.

FaceBook-- totally chewing into my blogging time, but. cannot. stop. Totally addicted.

Them some dirty broads over at Hot and Bothered. My husband would love to get his hands on one or the other.

I keep crackers in stock for the toddlers who visit. I'm scared they may chew my ankles if I don't have any to proffer.

And send Cakes over here. Maybe she could teach my kids on how to shut the door and put their damn shoes away.

KP: the curls come from my dad. I had that hair at Cakes' age too!

Lisa B: the no spill bubbles, ROCK!

Those curls! And wow, you had curly hair as a kid and now it's straight?!? I thought those things happened only in my dreams... ;)

Facebook... I check in on my home page to see what my friends are up to but I don't do much on my profile. I'm very boring on facebook - too scared old high school folks will find my blog.
