I have hacked my mom's blog!  It's me, Destini!  I will be "guest-hosting" and writing mom's blog this year, you know what I see through my eyes, hear with my ears, taste with palate, and whatever else I can think of.  I'll dictate, mom will transcribe....What? I'm only 2!

First, I am going to learn to ride this new bike I got for Christmas.  I especially 'LOVE' the bell and those little hangy thingies on the handle bars.  Mom and Dad were smart to get me the helmet; I always have to protect my head.  Unfortunately, I have epilepsy and I gotta always protect my noggin!

It's been a slow month around here, getting back to our routine since the holidays.  Mom and Dad have been working hard, plus with me...well I'm no bey-bey's kid, but I know how to get their attention when I want to. 

Mom made these awesome roasted potatoes this month, that, SERIOUSLY, I could have ate them all; but, it's polite to share!  I am getting lessons this month in "sharing."  So far, I don't like it!

Back to the potatoes....

See I told ya, they look good huh?  All mom did was cut little red potatoes in halves, sprinkled sea salt and pepper, poured that good olive oil on top, tossed em around and threw em in a 400 degree oven for about 25 minutes (depends on how big your taters are).  After they were done, she cut up some "fresh" dill and sprinkled all over them, toss, toss, toss.  See how easy?

Speaking of "fresh" herbs.  My mom absolutely does NOT have a green thumb.  She couldn't even grow a weed, and aren't those pretty hard to kill?  Yeah, she would kill one.  So anywho, we recently discovered that our "Smart N Final" store will actually (the produce manager) order any fresh herbs you want, $2.99!  Mom said, "that's a steal!"  I don't think she meant she stole it, I think she meant it was good bargain.  She ordered some "fresh" basal last week, and just take a look at these babies....We ate Italian for a week and a half!  Suffice to say, I'm cool on the pasta for a couple of weeks.  Mom? Overkill!

Mom's letting her hair grow out, and I gotta tell ya, she looks ridiculous!!  I will be so happy when she grows that mess out and gets it re-done!  Love you mommy....

Did I mention that I pulled my dresser on top of myself and was buried underneath it screaming and crying?  It wasn't that I was going to hide it from you, it's just that I scared my mom so bad that I just thought I wouldn't bring it up again.  I didn't break any bones!  They get so paranoid about everything.  But for safe sake, they took all my toys outta my room that I could climb on.  I guess later in life I will learn it was for LOVE, not for punishment.  See?  I'm fine!

Oh you noticed my hat?  Thanks for asking.  One of my mom's really great friends had recently been battling breast cancer READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE .   Mom said she had a hard road to travel, a double mastectomy and chemotherapy.  We followed along with her every day on Facebook.  I felt so sad because I saw my mom cry for her friend.  Then, the BEST NEWS EVER came this month!  She is now CANCER FREE!   

So, like I said...It's been a busy month and it's just flown right by.  I'm ready for my next blog.  No, I am not going to tell you in advance if that is what you are waiting for!  See ya soon!
