My kids are pretty cool, I must say. At least I was just saying so on Facebook. My soon to be 8 year old daughter has decided that she wants a sewing machine for her birthday. She is super into fashion, watches Project Runway with me, and has decided she wants to make clothes. I think that is so super cool. I can’t wait to help her, in fact. I also found a place for her to take dance lessons. It’s time to get her into an activity, especially since her brother will be doing a lot more stuff now that he’s in middle school. She decided on Hip Hop. Also super cool. I have decided to take a Zumba class. I swear. If you don’t know what it is – it’s basically like a latin dance/exercise type thing. It will be lots o’ fun.
Kids also do the weirdest things. It doesn’t seem weird to them, but we as adults just look at them like they’re completely insane. Like tonight….just 5 minutes ago in fact. I occasionally overhear Mini-Me playing pretend with her Barbies and stuffed animals. If you have not ever had the opportunity to eavesdrop on a pretend play session, I highly suggest you do so. The things they say are hilarious and most times you’ll walk away laughing your ass off. Other times, it really makes you realize how much the little bastards absorb – like when they are repeating an entire conversation that Mommy and friend had. Or talking about things that are way over there level of actual comprehension – they are just repeating what they heard. I’ll admit I have a total potty mouth and my kids bust out with stuff they should not say a lot of the time. My bad. I’ve trained them not to say it in public. So, anyway…I just happened to catch Mini-Me using my camera for a Barbie fashion photo shoot. Yes, she is actually posing the Barbies and taking their pictures. I thought it was the cutest thing I had ever seen. Then I looked at the pictures. I was looking at what could only be described at Doll Porn. I couldn’t stop laughing. I had to go get my mother and say “Look at this!”. Mini-Me doesn’t get it. She doesn’t know why we’re laughing at her pictures…but I had to share the fun. Below are a few samples.
I think I might need a cigarette and a drink.
