Maiabean, like a good Korean, likes noodles and rice.
Beanie has skipped her nap twice in the last week. And so it appears we are on our way to dropping nap. On the one hand, it would be nice to get back to an earlier bedtime. She currently goes to bed around 9:30pm. On the other hand, how am I supposed to get through a whole day with this Energizer bunny without a nap break!?
She likes to stall bedtime by coming up with “questions” to ask. E.g. “Mama, I have two questions… ummmm… ummmmm…. I will ask the second one first. The second one is… sometimes I like preschool and sometimes I don’t like preschool. My first question is… ummmm… I forgot the first question. I will ask it to you in the morning.”
Since turning her carseat she has become a bit of a backseat driver. “Mama! How come you aren’t turning the wheel?” “Mama, I want to pass that blue car.” “Mama, what’s that green one (regarding one of my infotainment displays)?”
Here is a late post about our Tahoe trip from the end of March!
Maia said she wanted to ski (where does she get these ideas?) and we last minute decided, why not? Let’s go!
First night we went ice skating. This rink didn’t have seals to hold onto, which meant it was a whole lot harder for the bean, too hard really.
Nevertheless, we had a fun evening of climbing on snow piles, throwing snow balls, and chowing down on pizza.
The next day Maia took a lesson with this very nice instructor at Boreal. After the lesson, she wanted to go up the lift with mama and dada, but then she threw a huge fit and wouldn’t ski down the hill! She plopped down, wouldn’t budge, and demanded to be carried! After much coaxing she skied down holding onto dada’s poles, and, surprise, surprise, requested another lesson for the next day. We were lucky to get the same instructor, and except for that one tantrum, Maia had a pretty successful intro to skiing.
Guess who was stoked to find this puzzle in our AirBnB?

Hopefully I will add a fun video to this post in the next few days! Video is here!
