Wordless Wednesday: What We've Been Up To

Instagram pics from the past month or so.  As you can see, we've had some gorgeous weather, but also more than our fair share of rain!

Things that Make Me Go Hmmm, Lilahbility Edition

This week's Listicle topic, Things that Make You Go Hmmm..., is brought to us by Erin and Ellen at The Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms.  I'm going to put a Lilahbility/toddler spin on this one:

Food tastes better to her when it comes from my plate or her dad's, even when it contains the exact. same. meal.

She doesn't like tomato sauce on her pasta, or sauce of any kind, for that matter, or even for any of her foods to touch, but dipping foods in ketchup or ranch dip is the very height of haute cuisine.

She wants to do everything herself and then collapses into a screaming, frustrated heap when a task proves too difficult for her developing fine motor skills.  By that point she is too far beside herself to even find the words to ask for the help I was offering in the first place.

She somehow manages to get cuter with age.  Why can't I have that power?

Most toys lose their novelty after they've been played with a few times, but she could watch the same episode of Dora 7000 times and never get bored.

After a long nap, she wakes up grumpy, wailing for "Mommy!" but then tells me to go away as soon as I get there.

Without doing anything at all, she makes random strangers on the street smile as she passes.

She'll have her hot dog with extra ketchup, hold the wiener, please.

She has the power to make me simultaneously seethe with frustration and beam with pride.  How does she do that?

If that song is stuck in your head and gotten you thinking about the things that make you go hmmmm..., head on over to the Listmaster's place to link up!

May Marvelousness

Time for Best of the Blogosphere, May 2012 edition.

Bianca simultaneously added a fun new word to my vocabulary and made me snort my drink out my nose with this post: What the Poopfart?  (Caution: refrain from drinking anything carbonated while reading.)

Over at The Adventures of OBB, Kate took a dark topic and made it light.  It's pretty much impossible to feel sorry for this strong survivor, but if you want to know The Top 10 Reasons It Is Cool To Have No Boobs, click here!

I can so relate to Amber's post, Eating Chocolate Chips on the Sly.  Guilty as charged!

Sometimes (um, let's face it, with kids, a lot of times) photo shoots don't go quite as you envision them.  Susan made me laugh with her Mother's Day Photo Fail.

Bruna's daughter showed that she might just follow in her blogger mommy's footsteps with this one:
Advice from a Teenager.  I'm going to have to store some of those tips away in my brain and pull them out in about, oh, ten years or so.

And finally, though I didn't get around to posting much in May, my favourite Lilahbility post was this one, mainly for the photos, because I managed to snap them at that most magical time of day when the sun is setting and light is golden.  And it's been rainy and cold ever since.

Now head on over to Time out for Mom 
to check out some more favourites!

Sweet Summer Memories

Summer is coming!  Well, at least in theory.  Vancouver had a delicious taste a little while ago, but since then, the cupboard has been a little bare.  Ah well, at least we have our sweet memories of summers past to tide us over. Which brings me to this week's listicle, 10 summer memories.  I had to dig deep into the archives to bring you some of these:


Backbacking around Europe with the man I now call the Hubs.

Heading across the border to the Gorge Amphitheatre for outdoor concerts.  Camping in a huge field in the middle of nowhere just to see the Dave Matthews Band play three nights in a row.

White water rafting.
Yeah, that's me riding up front with the dubious look on my face.

Leftovers, anyone?

Beach days.


Turning a drinking fountain into our own personal water park on a hot day.

What are your favourite summer memories?  Share them in the comments, and head on over to visit the Listmaster for more Monday Listicles!
