Lots of Veda temper tantrums lately. Today Veda wanted the "whole crate of blueberries", not just one. "Mommy, the blueberries feelings are hurt and now they are going to die!" There was no reasoning at this point, temper tantrum pursued and then we went to timeout.
Watch the "calming" tactic...deep breaths at the end of the tantrum (she definitely learned that in school - mom & dad don't calm down that easily).

Kathy had to do a little work trip to AZ today through tomorrow, so dad's in charge! The day was set up to be mellow compared to the last two days of high energy birthday parties. I took the girls over to the park about 11am and we found a nice little 2 year old birthday part to crash. We did a pretty good job avoiding the "limbo" games, the pizza party and even the pinata, but when Elmo showed up, it was game on...no keeping Veda from that. "Dad, he's my favorite, can I touch him?" Sure...

Me: Your What?
Veda: My fever Mom - please open the door!
I do and she grabs her Curious George ice pack. I then realize that she is calling the ice pack "fever" since we always break it out when she has a fever.
She then pulls down her tights and puts it on her butt.
Me: Veda WHAT are you doing??????
Veda: My fever makes my "button" feel better.
I think she is constipated....

Today we took Veda and Adele to a birthday party for a co-worker's 3 yr. old son. It was down at Malibu Bluffs Park and luckily we had some pretty good weather during the party. It was a kite themed party, so after the clown and lunch, everyone got to fly a kite. Right on cue, as the party ended, it started pouring rain. Veda was a lot more interested in the bulldog she spotted than flying kites, regardless, everyone had a great time.
|Mmmm, yummy cake.|
|Clown, make me a bicycle.|
|Bedtime for Bongo.|

Veda had her 2.5 year check-up this week. She is still off the charts at 97% across the board. The Dr. was super impressed with her language and couldn't believe she was talking to him in full sentences. She had to have one shot and it took all my strength to hold her down - sad but she got over it quickly with the mention of lollipops and stickers.
