An Interview with a Mermaid

We got bored one night and decided to straighten Hollyn's hair. I was a bit afraid because the Chi got so hot, so I didn't get the sides that great. Hollyn LOVED it! She swung her hair behind her and said, "I look like a mermaid! A mermaid on the rocks!!!" It made her look 3 years older. It was hilarious how much she loved it. It came down to her shoulder blades when straightened. As we were laying in bed that night she said, "Mom, thank you SO MUCH for doing that for me today!" It was very sweet and quite funny.

Hollyn doesn't really nap anymore and she doesn't play by herself or with toys, so I go crazy a few times a day. She decided it would be fun to dump out 1,000 small vocabulary cards all over the floor. So instead of over-reacting, like I do too often, I decided to help her pick all ONE THOUSAND up and interview her while we cleaned...

She does look older! That kid cracks me up. I bet you were sweating it until you figured out what toy she was talking about.

Tee hee hee! Your story brings back some great memories. One of my favorites was Logan shopping with me. As he flipped through the hangers on the clothing rack, he said (in his best mommy voice), "Large, large, large, medimum, medimum, medimum..." To this day, we still say medimum. Love it! Jill, you and Hollyn always make me smile!
