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?

  1. LOL the trail of stuff! My friend always knows where her husband is because he leaves trails too, that's why she calls him Hansel.

    1. The dog picks up on my daughter's energy and behaviour a lot. So, it's nice when they are both resting! :)
