How to make a baked potatoBella Marie’s mama texted me this pic while I was at work and she dropped by school.Someone did NOT want to go to bed. I literally dragged her up the stairs. That wasn’t very effective because she thought it was HILARIOUS!Sunday night family cuddle timeRebel was a little clingy that night (in HG’s bed).After-school Whimsy Cookie stop. I can’t get used to that new snaggle tooth smile!She was telling me how to play checkers on the floor tiles.I got a new curling wand, and she let me practice on her.So I created a curly haired monster. I agreed to curl her hair before school the next day. It looked great until we walked outside into the rainy day, and her curls fell a little bit. She was NOT HAPPY and drew me these before and after pictures to let me know how she felt about it.Love finding these surprise pics on my phone!Flipping with Daddy
Dinner date with Bubba and some play time at her house afterward
Love this oh-so-typical view of Bubba at her doorSo it took 5.5 years, but HG finally took scissors to her own hair. She got a barrette stuck and decided to cut it out instead of asking for help. Luckily, it was below her ear on her left side, so it’s not terribly noticeable but she was REALLY upset about it.Princess upon princess upon princess upon princessOne day over Spring Break, Spiffer and GD took HG to the Gross-ology exhibit at the Pink Palace. It lived up to its name, apparently.She made this for me, and now it is hanging on my cube wall at work.Sushi family date night
Trying on Cinderella high heels!
Love the way she says, “Museum.”
”Mama, you were right”: One morning she came into my bathroom and said, “Mama, I have something important to say. You were right to tell me not to stand on my plasma car behind the couch.” After I picked my mouth up off the floor, I smartened up and realized I needed that statement on tape. She took a bit of ‘reminding’ but eventually helped me recreate the moment. ww
