The Terror in Sweet

Last night I am in the middle of Cooking dinner. The kitchen is quiet and peaceful as the kids are down stairs watching a movie and Sweet Terror is playing with her Daddy in the office. Suddenly Sweet Terror comes running through the kitchen, grabs a chair and pushes it up against my computer desk, climbs up and reaches on her very tip toes to get the scissors down.

"Whoah, hold on their, little missy, no scissors."

"But, but, (and then she gives me that panicked look that says I am the only thing standing between her and her calling in life) Moooooom."

"No, no scissors."

(She starts doing this little tantrum dance on her little toes) "But, but, daddy, scissors... um, uh.."

"Oh, does daddy need the scissors? (She nods frantically and I turn to yell through the hall way) HEY, HONEY, DID YOU SEND SWEET TERROR OUT HERE TO GET YOU A PAIR OF SCISSORS?"

(Mumbling from the the office) "That little stinker. NO! She was playing with my hair and I told her I needed a hair cut."

So, apparently Sweet Terror is going to be our little beautician. =)


I have been getting a few questions about the pregnancy lately so here is a quick update:
Due Date: June 26th
Sex of baby: Boy
Any names?: Nope, and hubby and I have already almost had a fight over it so we just throw out names now and then but nothing seems right.
How am I feeling?: BIG, big, fat, and very lazy. I really want to be able to bend over, I want to move without wincing, I want to hug my husband without having to lean over my belly, and I desperately want to meet this new little guy.
Cravings?: Pepperoncini peppers
Embarrassing food moment?: Ok, no one has asked about this but it is too funny/sad not to share. I went to get a slice of apple pie, noticed there were only two slices worth left in the pan and just grabbed the whole pan. Saw an almost empty bag of Cheetos sitting close by so I dumped them into the pie pan too, stuck a fork in it all and sat down to eat. Homer Simpson has nothing on me.
Any other questions?

Sam is the 27th of June and Nate is the 29th of June, those are both good boy names if he is born on one of those days, ha ha

My Ice Cream Diary said...

Hee hee. Thanks for giving permission to use them. =)

Amber M. said...

Nice save with the scissors!

And I have a Sam, too. Great name.

Cheetoes and apple pie...hmmm.

Packer Family said...

My name is sam! ok Samantha but still, it's a good name!

cellista said...

My 4yo thinks the way Sweet Terror does. It's scary sometimes. My 3yo is also my beautician. He stands there with my makeup bag and hands me things--use this now? Now this?

For C's name we couldn't agree on anything. DH wanted John, that just doesn't work with our last name you know (think about it for awhile.) We finally started coming up with all the names we couldn't use--old boyfriends, people we didn't like, names that just didn't work, etc, and finally I suggested C and DH said, "Yeah, I like that!"

Childlife said...

Hee, hee! Clever little monkey! :D That was just too cute!

Cheeto apple pie, huh? I don't think Ben and Jerry are going to be calling you any time soon for new flavor suggestions... :)

Family Adventure said...

Sweet Terror is adorable, so wanting to help daddy out! :)

Enjoy your food, I say!

CC said...

That's pretty cute about the haircut. At least she didn't try to cut her own hair (yet!).

An Ordinary Mom said...

Sweet Terror sure is pretty brilliant!

And I can't wait to meet your little guy, too. It will be interesting to see how far apart yours and mine end up being. Good luck on the name front.

Apple Pie, at least in my book, goes so much better with ice cream than cheetos :) !!

Richelle said...

Too funny. Both the scissors and the cheetos apple pie. :)

Becks said...

Hilarious! Gotta cut Daddy's hair...

Sea Star said...

We have moments with scissors like that every once in awhile. Good Save!

I love Apple Pie... that sure sounds good.... And cheetos are my favorite chips but I don't think I have ever combined the two.

Good luck with your new little guys name. Boys names are a lot harder!

Amber said...

You are on the home stretch!!! And I don't mean stretching in the literal sense, of course. :-)

Tama said...

I've had cheese melted onto apple pie--very delicious, but CHEETOS? Hmmmmm.....

Boy names-HoneyBunny and I never could agree and one day as I was brushing my teeth (at eight months pregnant) I heard a voice say a name. I told my husband and he totally agreed! I tell my son he picked his own name.

Mrs. Annie said...

LOL cute little terror!

Funny food moment too! OI!

just jamie said...

Apple pie and Cheetos is perfectly acceptable cuisine.

Amy Y said...

Hee hee ~ she sounds like a dream :)

Boy names are hard! Hope you guys find the perfect one soon!

WomensDaily said...

LOL at least she didn't sneak up behind him and start cutting his hair.

Leslie said...

Toddlers and scissors...gotta love them...OK, maybe not so much.

I don't see anything wrong with any woman, pregnant or not, eating apple pie topped with cheetos. I just call those things, "a woman's perogative"

Sending lots of good energy for the home stretch (literal and figurative).

Oh...and the file folders. I bought a book at Deseret Book that has lots of ideas for them...I can't find it at the moment and I can't remember the name, but I'll get back to you on it. I think it would be pretty easy to do it on your own too. The kind I'm working on are matching upper case and lower case letters. Matching colors, matching shapes...kind of basic...but the kids seem to like them.

Lisa said...

That little cutie is sneaky!!!

Charlotte said...

Homer Simpson!! Love it! Sounds like me when i'm preggers. If you can hold out two days past due then he'll be born on my b-day! Feel free to name him Charlie after me;)

Becoming Me said...

Love the name sweet terror! Love it.

Caffienated Cowgirl said...

That's too funny...she's a clever/sly one, isn't she? However, if you hadn't caught her, perhaps your hubby would be sporting a new 'do :)

I am really laughing about the apple pie and Cheetos feast - what is it about pregnancy that turns us into such food fiends?

Prudy said...

Fellow Ice Cream Lover:
I just came over from your comment on my blog. I love you writing. I'm a fellow home schooler, too. Hang in there-June 26th isn't too far from now!
By the way, I ate so much ice cream when I was pregnant-once when I was loading up at the grocery store the checker asked if I was having a party. "Nope, it's all for me!"-then I waddled out the door.

Julie Q. said...

Woa. You averted quite the hair cutting incident! Good thing you think like a mom.

Mmmmm. Cheetos.

Michal said...

i am grossing out about the cheetos and apple pie. but pregnancy does strange things to us . . .

i love that sweet terror wanted to cut dh's hair. good thing you didn't give them to her. and your description of her reaction is just so three year old. well done.

Sonja said...

Oh boy, we've had close run ins with scissors too. At least Sweet Terror's intentions were...good?

Hurray for a boy!! We could never finalize a name until we held that little baby in our arms. And about the food combos, well, what ever makes you happy is good, eh? :) I only like to eat pomellos when I'm pregnant. I can eat 4 or 5 a day, only then.

The Lazy Organizer said...

Now I'm craving cheetos! Out of a pie pan of course. With pie!

Manager Mom said...

I eagerly await stories on how Sweet Terror will handle the brother, post arrival.

With my daughter, she liked the baby OK for a few days, but after about a week she finally asked, "Mommy, when do we get to give the baby back to the hospital?"

Magirk said...

Ahhhhhhh, Pregnancy! ;D

(Funny story about the scissors! My little 4yo has that 'but, but, but, Mommy! thing goin' on too. Highly irritating sometimes.)

Flea said...

With my last child, I just knew we weren't going to agree on names, s oI got out the baby book and made a list of good strong, masculine first names that I liked, then, next to it, a list of middle names which would all work fairly well with the first names. Made sure to throw in a couple of favorite family names. Then I handed my Hunny the list and asked him to choose his favorites. That way I knew I'd get names I liked, but it was his choice. Worked beautifully!

Oh, and I vote for an Oliver. :D

Sherri said...

My 4-almost 5 yr old has cut her hair twice in the past month, which I've had to correct. The silly thing is she has been talking about how she wants to grow it out long.
So cute, how she took Dad seriously on a haircut.
