*UPDATED TO ADD*
I absolutely adore this daughter of mine to very core of my being. Her little scrunched-up nose makes my heart melt, and her songs and dances light up every corner of this house.
Not six hours after I published the above picture, my little darlin’ flushed her pajama bottoms and panties down the toilet. Because, she said, "I don’t want pwincess panties. I want Awiel panties." And you can imagine what the pajama bottoms and pwincess panties did to our plumbing. If you can’t imagine, I will tell you that it involves three flooded rooms, about twenty soaked towels, an $88 plumbing bill and one very amused plumber. And also one very amused momma who just thinks this whole thing is absolutely, delightfully precious and is not at all irritated or furious or ready to put her child in a strait jacket for the rest of the day.
Please, dear Lord, do not let there be yet another update to this post.
