This doesn't happen often, so when they ask, I oblige!!! Even if it means we are 5 min. late getting out the door, but I digress...
Today, it was the little pumpkin that felt like being a ham. It may have had something to do with the fact I let her wear this twirly skirt she picked out ("It does have some Mardi Gras colors, you know...") instead of what I had in mind. And I even said, yes, to the sparkly "princess" shoes. Yes, even on a rainy day.
She had a little surprise she wanted to show me ("just because I love you, mama") in the form of little vinyl cling hearts. Love her sweet spirit!
Oh, she can be a hoot. I'm always telling her, "Stand up straight. Good posture is important." Today, the joke was on me...as soon as she gave me the hearts, she went right back to our "picture spot" and stood like this:
Silly little pumpkin!!
And she alternated between silliness...
Oh, and just for fun, this was their conversation on the way to school yesterday...
Hudson (in his most excited little boy voice): I see 1 port-a-potty! I see 2 port-a-potties!!
Grace (in classic valley girl voice): Eew, gross! I once had to go in a port-a-potty... at preschool... on a field trip to a farm. I made it out alive. Never again.
Hudson: What did it smell like, Grace???!
I laughed soooo hard!! Little boys are soooo funny!
Happy Mardi Gras, y'all!
