My name is Georgina. I am Australian. I recently relocated to Greenwich CT after 6 years living in New York City. I live with my partner John and our two sweet girls - 3 year old Charlotte and baby Alexandra. Oh, and let's not forget the fur-baby Winston. Welcome to my corner of the internet. I hope you brought cake.

Georgie Girl

Are we going to eat fluff at the fair? Charlotte, 4 years old. No wonder the kid is confused when I call it fairy floss and John calls it cotton candy.
Is it daytime at your house, Daddy? John is on a business trip and this was Charlotte’s first question for him on the phone tonight. She was fascinated by the fact that he was in a different time zone last business trip.

Hold your horses, kiddo

Me:: Five more sleeps until your birthday.

Charlotte:: Then I'll be four.

[Pause]

Charlotte:: I'll be going to college soon.

Me:: I can't believe you are going to be 4 next week. I'm a bit sad that you are growing up so quickly. When you grow up will you please visit me every week?

Charlotte:: Yes but only on the weekends. Because I will be busy doing very important work during the week.

Who took a bite out of the apple? Is that why it’s not working? Charlotte’s iPad stopped working so I did the old turn off/turn on trick. She watched it start back up and asked this question.
I can’t talk to you right now because I have to go to Target.

I just overhead Charlotte say this on her pretend cell phone. 

Target is always a priority. Even at the age of 3.

This is not so fun. Charlotte’s assessment of taking DOWN the Christmas decorations are 100% correct.
That’s you, Mommy! Charlotte said this while pointing at a photo of Gisele Bundchen on my phone. Charlotte is my favorite child now. And needs her eyes tested.

John had surgery this morning to remove the plate on his collar bone

John:: I got a bunch of stitches

Charlotte:: So I have to be very nice to you.

Sisters / Best Friends

Me:: Charlotte, do you think Alex will be your best friend when you grow up?

Charlotte:: But Alex is already my best friend.
