A Day With a Two Year Old- The Mall 

My bffffff wanted to go to the mall for a couple things, so she met me at my parents so we could go together. When I took the car seat from my sister she asked if I wanted the stroller. I told her no I wouldn’t need it. Well, I needed it. My bffffff and I decided to take on the mall without a stroller! My niece wanted to walk so we said only if she holds our hands. We each took a hand so that she would have no free hands. It worked for the most part, until she would slip her hand out of one of ours and literally touch everything in reach! When we were inside stores we held her though. She actually did really well to my surprise. There were no temper tantrums on the floor and nothing broken. Go aunties for conquering the mall! 

    

A Day With a Two Year Old- 2:30 PM: Leaves Glorious Leaves! 

So I only got her to take a nap while in the car, but when we got to my parents’ house I had to wake her up.

  

 Although she only slept for about 15-20 minutes, she woke up so energized. We were sitting in the back yard with my parents and my niece’s dad, and she spent a good 15 minutes running back and forth to the lemon tree and grabbing one leaf at a time and bringing them to me. Toddlers are entertained by the simplest things in life.  

 

A Day With a Two Year Old- 12:00 PM: Dino-Nugget Stare Down

I don’t understand why eating is such a hard task. I love to eat whenever I can! But this little girl thinks it’s torture. It’s lunch time. She asked me for chicken so I slaved over the hot microwave for a whole minute! She ate a piece and decided she was done. Thus started the Dino-Nugget stare down. I told her to eat, she told me no. WHAT?! I imprisoned her at the table until she was done. I won! 

Auntie: 1 / Toddler: 0

  

  

A Day With a Two Year Old- 10:00 AM: Reading, Baking, and Talking on the Phone 

We have gone from grumpy breakfast to love and play time. It’s so funny how fast their moods change! They are like Sour Patch Kids, first they’re sour, then they’re sweet. We brushed our teeth, 

 

Read a book, 

   

Baked a cake, 

 

Which she fed to me five times… so much for watching my figure, and lastly talked on the phone  

   

Such a busy day in the life of a two year old! Her agenda is packed! 

Watch Out, My Flats Are Pointy

I have always loved flats. I wear them a lot because although I love heels and have a bunch that I never wear, I am already tall as it is and I hate being even taller around all of my friends who are shorter than me. I know I shouldn’t care, but I prefer to wear heels when the other girls are going to wear them too. Anyways, like I said I love flats, but I never thought I would love pointed flats. I remember when they first started coming out and I was iffy about them. Yes they were cute but I didn’t know if I could pull them off. Now they are my favorite and I choose a pointed flat before I would choose a rounded one.

I have been good and staying away from Target lately. You do not understand, I have been like REALLY good, AND when my roomie and I went the other day to get milk and nail polish, I went straight in that direction and avoided the clothes and shoes. My roomie even noticed and said good job. Thank you, thank you. Well it just so happens that Target is having a “Buy one, get one half off” sale on ALL SHOES. I have even stayed away for two days since I have known. Today though, I decided to go, but I went with the intention of buying new flats. All of the flats that I have I need to toss since they are old and starting to look and feel old. I have also had my eye on a pair of pointed, snake skin flats for awhile. Somehow there was a pair left in my size.

Since the sale was BOGO half off of course I had to get a second pair. I was so tempted to get the heels I have been wanting and have already bought once… but I returned them out of buyers remorse. They even had one last pair in my size! So guess what I did? I did not get them! Please be proud and hold your applause. I decided to be practical. Since I needed new flats and I can wear them for work, I decided to get a second pair of pointed flats. These ones black and camel tan. I am actually quite happy with my purchase and cannot wait to wear my new flats and see how I can style them up! I am also happy for the fact that my excuse to buy them was for work, which is totally justifiable.
