Girls Night In
The boys went off to a football game on Saturday, in our hometown of Hamilton. It rained throughout the entire game, but they stayed strong until the end. Oh, and the Ti-Cats won the game, so that made it all worthwhile. Here`s my son wearing my dad`s vintage Tiger-Cats jacket.
Me and my newly-turned-eight mini me were left with a day to hang out together. Notice she crashed the off-to-the-game picture, above, while still wearing her pjs (and her Junie B. Jones glasses of course).
We cozied up by the fire that evening, and watched 13 Going on 30. I had to fast forward a certain strip tease, but other than that, it wasn`t too bad, and honestly, I`m kind of tired of kids`movies.
After the movie, she read to me from the new Ivy + Bean book that she got from a friend for her birthday. She is a force to be reckoned with, and you don`t read to her. She reads to you.
She wasn`t comfortable with the notion of going to sleep upstairs without her big brother around, so she settled in on one couch while I watched TV from another. I`m not that comfortable alone in the house either, so I watched quite a few shows before I fell asleep. The Dog Whisperer (if only I had a dollar for every time someone told me Cesar could help my dog), Beastly, The Girl.
My daughter doesn`t travel light, including when it`s just to the family room. She leaves a trail of stuff all over the floor.
The next day, she opened up a store, selling her Halloween art to mom and dad. I paid $1.25 for a pumpkin and a couple of other small pieces in a sandwich bag.
She added us to her mailing list and cashed us out on her little cash register. How could I resist buying?
Does anybody else get taken in by little capitalists?
