So G woke up at 5:00 am this morning.  She requested (ahem, demanded) to go downstairs and I knew she was up for the day.  Normally I would try to get her back to sleep for a bit, but I figured I might be able to get some work done if I could get her to fall back asleep on the couch.  Silly mommy.

She asked for milk, which I happily gave her, but apparently, the amount I put in the cup wasn't satisfactory for Princess G.  Cut to throwing of her cup, throwing of herself on the ground and lots of yelling and time out.

If you follow me on Facebook, you've already seen these pictures:

But mom, I want more milk in my cup!!!!!!! That's not enough!

After we got Reedster on the bus, I made myself some shakeology and sat down to do my daily reading.  G was playing with cotton balls pretending to take off her nail polish.  (Hey, whatever makes her happy.)  I walked away to grab a little more coffee and when I walked back into the living room, G had knocked my chocolate shakeology onto the floor.

I don't know how she did it folks.  But somehow she got the shakeology in a straight line from the ottoman to the wall.  And there was still some left in the cup.

That's oxy-clean on the stain.... and G putting chapstick on.  More on that in a bit.
Thankfully, I have great ILs who happen to have a steam cleaner.  G and I went to work and got  most of the stain out.  It took a while, but it's much better.

All morning, I had been waiting for a phone call.  I kept my phone handy while I was cleaning the carpet so I wouldn't miss the call.  When I did take the call, G rediscovered the chapstick.... and decided to see what happened when she put it on the window...

Don't get me wrong, that's a fantastic smiley face for a 2 year old!
I should have known a few days ago when I caught G putting lotion (aka butt paste) on her face that this girl cannot be left unsupervised for even a second.

Why so serious?
To make it up to me, G came up to me while I was getting my make up on and said, (I can't make this stuff up), "I love you mommy.  You're the best mommy ever!"

TGIF.  If I didn't have an eye appointment this afternoon, I'd be having a glass of wine with my lunch.
