Toby to Trevy (who has decent aim and was karate chopping at him) during a recent car ride...
Stop torturing me!
Do I look beautiful today, mommy?
Asks Bristel from where she was perched on the stairs. Modeling out grown jeans and a too-tight t-shirt. Hair going every which way. Looking adorably...Bristel-ish.
She flashed her dimples and simultaneously unplugged her sucking thumb while dropping her blankie in the basket.
I've decided I'm not going to suck my thumb on days I wear beautiful things! Isn't that a good idea?
She's convinced her blankie makes her suck her thumb. Which is really cute. But do I tell her that I don't mind her blankie snuggling thumb sucking ways...cause it means she still my baby?
Toby says about his sister...
She sure doesn't love her posse!
When asked to define who exactly her posse was...he informed...
That would be us! Her family!
Bristel was rosy cheeked and holding Callie by the leash when I glanced out the big window to check on them. When Bristel saw me she waved furiously and said...
I love you, mommy!
flashed her dimple and joyfully added...
So does Callie! Did you know I know how to talk to animals?
And away they went. To continue conversing about whatever little girls and puppies do...I'm sure.
We happened to be touring Trevy's class during snack time. I came prepared. That time. With juice and animal crackers.
Trevy was happily munching. While I was busy soaking in the room.
I felt a tug on my hands. Looked down to find Trevy looking into my eyes. Sippy cup held up high in one hand. The other still tugging mine.
And then the most beautiful thing happened...
Which, my lovely friends, means MORE!
And is why my eyes were misting as I jumped up to get him "Maaaawwww"!
