Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

My kid is a Flippin' Genius

Puddin Pop is a genius. Sure, she doesn't know what Loquat trees are, but either do I.

The other night she was taking a bath, yep, I'm one of those bad Moms that leave their children unattended in the tub, and she apparently wanted to lay back in the water. Oh what I would give for a tub big enough to submerge my whole body, but enough with that visual. The water level was so high that it would have submerged her whole face, causing breathing difficulties and sure death, but she was too smart for that. My little problem solver dumped all her toys and came up with a "helmet" that would raise her head just enough so the water could not fill her mouth and nose.
I busted out laughing, ran for the camera, and snapped a photo of my NASA hopeful.
Pretty darn smart, huh? I'm going to have to start researching enrichment programs for this one...or swimming lessons.


  1. Hehe... swimming lessons are definitely in order.

    Another option - only put enough water in the tub so that she can lay down completely and the water will still only come up to her eyes. That way she can lay down all the way with no worries of having her face under the water.

  2. {girl}~ Yes, she is always Happy...and loves the water.

    Mom~ Shallower water will be next, she usually doesn't like water anywhere near her face and ears, but I think she's over that.


Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here.
