The 2 year old acts more hormonal that the 12 sometimes. She will, when she gets in a huff, cross her arms, put on "the face" and stomp around and then sit down arms still crossed with the, "you do not exist look" on her face.

My little girl (who is 8 and a half) is off on her first SLEEPOVER tonight!
It only seems like yesterday she was clinging onto my apron strings...and now THIS!
They are having a girly pamper evening of manicures...face packs....temporary tattoos...make-up etc etc...
Where did all the time go?
I'm stuck in with the boys tonight...a Starwars dvd and pizza!...I'm not used to being out-numbered!

I hope she has a fun sleepover and you don't get any late night phone calls. My daughter's first sleepover when she was 6 at a friends (just the two girls), I got a phone call at 11:30 with her crying to come pick her up. If it hadn't been for my husband and mother telling me to be strong (and not to go get her) I would have been there in a flash. Instead I cried about it (after I hungup) the fact that she wanted her Mommy and that I didn't go to her and also that my baby was growing up
Have fun with the boys tonight. A little change of pace will be good for everyone
Rachel packed up her little suitcase on wheels at 9am this morning and has been wheeling it around the house with her all day...where she goes the suitcase goes too!...she's watching Scooby-Doo now sitting on the sofa with her little feet resting on it! She's not going till 4pm...if she asks me one more time how long it is till she goes I shall surely scream!

My daughter just asked -again- when are we going to American Girl Place (http://www.americangirl.com/stores/location_chi.php). I'm taking the kids today (no school) for their birthday pressies.
I better stop by the bank and take out a loan
A friend bought my daughter a Bitty Baby which she eventually handed down to her sister. I think she wants a DOLL now. $$$$ I'm hoping I can at least talk my younger one into something cheaper. Like a pair of socks
My husband took the children into town last weekend...they had a £1 each to spend from their piggy banks. Dan came home with a little Matchbox car...my little girl came home with a pair of socks! They weren't even for her...they were for me...and said "Worlds Greatest Mummy" on them!...I don't mind telling you I had a lump in my throat when I opened them!

Have a fun day, it's nice out right now at least!
