Life Lately with MK

Life with our little one is always interesting.

It's full and lively.

Lately, life with MK has been quite musical. She loves playing her new guitar. And her daddy loved it so much that he went out and bought one for himself. Now Mommy Dearest gets to hear two lovely learners strumming away.
Life with MK recently has meant lots of snuggling in the wee hours of the morning. She's been having "night dreams" as she calls them. One night she had a night dream that the Grinch was in her room. Another night it was some monster. We don't let her sleep with us (refer back to year three if you don't remember why) and we usually take her back to her bed if she does get up, but lately we've let her crawl in and snuggle down. And it's been nice. Except for when she does it like three nights in a row and each night she comes earlier and earlier.
It means watching her dress up in about a million outfits a day. One minute she's a princess, the next a USC cheerleader and the next time you turn your head she's a doctor or a vet.
Life with MK always includes snuggles and hugs. She's so very affectionate. I could eat her up. I hope she always stays that way. 
Some days life with MK is lots of sass and whining and, "Just one more minute. I don't wanna go to bed." Bed time is always an issue around our breaks. She gets out of her routine, we let her stay up later and then getting back on track is hard. One day last week, at midnight, she was still awake and convinced that she was not tired. Late nights like that mean sleepy mornings. Mornings where she is quite the little bear, she cries big tears and begs to go back to sleep and then falls asleep on our way to Roddey's. Thank goodness those days are few and far between.

Life with MK is the best. I am one blessed momma and I try not to take even one day for granted.
