Brigid says...

A couple of weeks ago, Steve was throwing Brigid around the room, and even though she seemed to think it was the greatest ride ever, it freaked me out a little bit. And when I told him to quit, he didn't exactly jump to respond, so I defaulted my 'mother' voice, pulling out a very stern 'Stop it, Stephen'.

Last night, while Brigid was sitting in her room, flipping through a book, Steve kept trying to tickle her foot. Brigid looked him straight in the eye and said, 'Stop it, Stephen'.

I don't think that will ever NOT be funny to me.


Brigid knows where Steve hides the jelly beans. And even though I didn't necessarily want to reward her with candy during this whole potty training process, she knows where to go to get her treat when she's been a big girl.

Today? She asked my mother-in-law if she went potty, and when my MiL responded that she had?

Brigid gave her a jelly bean.

Treats for EVERYONE!!!

(But, only the orange ones, because Brigid doesn't like those, herself...)


  1. Jelly beans are the treat of the moment here too. We are currently working on training Elizabeth not to interrupt while I am on the phone. (It is FINALLY working!) So she gets a jelly bean whenever I hang up. I don't even remember to give her one anymore, but SHE always remembers.
