This is the "CLASSIC CUPCAKE"  I am telling you...  She is getting very sneeky as she approaches 4 yrs old!

I wanted to do a quick Happy Father's Day since I am not a week late YET.

We had a great day.  My father stopped by for breakfast and the three of us spent the day laying around doing NOTHING but playing with the dogs and swimming in the pool.

After we took naps we got dressed to go for Sushi.  I do not know how many couples take their 4 year olds (almost four) to dinner at 8 on a Sunday night and follow up with desert at our favorite Italian hang out so we can play Botchi with Cupcake but getting home at 11:30 was no sweat for her.

Tomorrow is the BIGGEST day....

Marco and Cupcake are on their way to Bermuda for a Daddy & daughter weekend.  This will be the first time we are separated for more than one night.  I will miss them.  I will enjoy the quiet time.  I will her CRAZY. I am so happy they are so excited for their excursion together.

As much as I will miss them...I am on my way to see Kathy Griffin about 4 hours after they leave tomorrow so this will cheer up my first night solo!

So we were hanging out by the pool on Sunday.  It was nice quiet time-just the two of us.
Unfortunately, my phone rang for work so I was distracted for about 5 minutes.  When I looked over Cupcake was chilling out reading her book.  Just as I was doing a few moments before the dreaded ring.  So here was the conversation:

Mom:  Cupcake want to take a dip?

Cupcake:  Nah- we just took a dip and I am drying in the sun

Mom:  Ok, do you want to do something (waiting to hear-  THE SWING)

Cupcake:  Mom, I just want to chill out and read my princess book.

Mom:  Is it a good book?

Cupcake:  Yeah, I am relaxing

Mom:  I know Sweetheart, it is nice to have quiet time.

Cupcake:  Mom, I appreciate it.

Mom:  What do you appreciate?

Cupcake:  I love you Mom.

Mom:  I love you too.  Can I take a pic of you chilling out?

Cupcake:  I have sunscreen in my hair.

Mom:  You can't see the sunscreen, so can I snap a quickie?

Cupcake:  Do I look gorgeous?

Mom:  You always look gorgeous!

Cupcake:  You too Mom.  One picture, k?

Mom:  Thanks Cupcake

Here is my one pic....
