Sweet Child of Mine

Tonight Abi cracked me up a couple times.

After bath time, I was combing out her long hair and I asked if it was ok if I practiced French braiding it. She agreed and after we slipped on the scrunchie she ran her hands up and down her long braid. She had a quizzical expression on her face so I showed her in the mirror and asked what she thought about it. She replied, "It feels English". Get it?! French braid!

Seriously, what am I going to do with her? She is cuteness all wrapped up in an almost 5 year-old body with a freckle on the nose!

Then after the braid episode I called her to come and brush her teeth and trim her fingernails. She whined that she wanted to let her fingernails grow. So, I told her that we'd let her fingernails grow only if she quit sucking her thumb. She said, "OK, I quit! But sometimes I really can't stop when I say I want to. Especially when my thumb is so yummy. It tastes just like PANCAKES!"

Munch, munch... that's me gnawing at her cheeks... =)

Sorry, no pics...Hetee's bugging me to get off the pc...
