Packing is for Wienies

Taking pictures of your 20 month old is waaaayyyy more fun.

As you can see, I'm getting a LOT done.

In my defense, it's been ages since I took pictures of her just for fun (since my Rebel has been in the shop AGAIN recently plus this whole home-buying thing has really taken up a lot of time, man) so I say less boxes, more blogging!

We got her a little step stool so that she would stop standing on the heaters to look outside.

This is one of her top five all-time favourite activities.

The other four, in no particular order, would be: shouting "ballon!" ball or balloon or "fleur!" flower or leaf or "chee!" cheese or dog, depending or "shee!" shoe; standing at the sink "brushing" her teeth; swinging on the swings, preferably while holding her ballon; and drinking juice. Which doesn't happen very often around here because juice = sticky. No can do. I have issues.

This was probably her spotting a Chee! (chien/dog).

What is this "chee" of which you speak so knowingly?

Me: Okay baby, it's bathtime! (duh duh da dum duh duh da dum dum de dum de dum! There is music that goes with bathtime in our house and it happens to be the music from Batman because Stéphane is the Bath-man. Get it?! We like puns. And movie theme songs. OK, anyway....)


Whachoo talkin' about Willis?

I can't help it! The corny captions just COME to me! Dear Liliane, sorry for embarrassing you in front of the entire internet, but your expressions are too delicious not to share. Plus it makes me laugh which you should think of as a wise long-term investment. Love, Crazy Maman xo

I took these so Stéphane could see that yes indeed I got some work done. Or that I at least documented our child getting some work done. She was all over my idea of putting the tupperware in a box.

So where do you want it?

Oh man, somebody stop me. I am killing myself over here.
OK, back to it. Now this time I MEAN it when I say that I won't be back until sometime next week. We move on Monday so wish us luck! (No, seriously, please leave me an encouraging comment otherwise I might just sneak off to Mexico, Swine Flu be darned, until this whole thing is done...)
Muchos gracias!

Movin' On Up

Oh internet, what a crazy crazy last few weeks! Here is quick list of some the highlights:
  • no less than 4 (minor) medical mishaps to to my clumsiness
  • went to the notary, signed all the papers, we are homeowners!
  • made our first mortgage payment
  • did our wills
  • bought more insurance than I even knew existed
  • no less than 4 freakouts about money (we take turns, will it ever end?)
  • met our new neighbours and LOVE them
  • bought a new toaster
  • bought a new microwave
  • got rid of my credit card and now am paying back the bank - debt free in 5 years!
  • had a nice visit from my Dad. He approves of the new place AND its handy proximity to DQ
  • confirmed an excellent new daycare starting in August
  • Liliane's molars may be starting to come in. Great.
  • On standby for my brother and SIL's cupcake to come into the world so I can dash down for the bris. I even have a job to do!
  • endless crunching of numbers
  • boxes, boxes, boxes and more boxes...

Of course our list of upcoming TO DO is about eight times longer (and a little dull, frankly) so I will spare you all that. Stéphane and I are on vacation as of Thursday next week when operation "get the heck outta here" hits the ground running. I'll post when we're set up... with pictures!

Speaking of pictures, I found these on the camera from a while back - Stéphane spotted a deal on this Eddie Bauer stroller (I think it was $30 down from $80) so we grabbed it.
While he was there he also picked out the outfit she's wearing. My husband is a wicked shopper and secure enough in his manliness to be OK with my sharing that information. I think.
I KNOW she doesn't look like me, OK?
Not to belabour the point, but he also bought her the outfit she is wearing in these photos:
In THIS photo I find she looks like me. Perhaps it's the double chin??
And this sweet little hat from Mexx:

My child officially has a better summer wardrobe than I. But that's OK.
Back to errands and high finances. Back soon!
