It’s not that we’ve done precious little. Quite the opposite, in fact. It’s just that I didn’t whip out a camera to photograph each and every second. *Gasp!*
I know! That is so unlike me, the mom who has a photo archive bigger than the Library of Congress.
But, it’s true. I don’t know how, I don’t know why, but I was not inspired to document every single moment of Molly’s life this week.
Don’t worry, I am sure that the feeling will pass. After all, we do have a vacation on the horizon.
So here is the entire extent of what is on my memory card since my last blog post. Each and every picture. Enjoy.
Molly found my lipstick…Which, of course, inspired this princess pose.
Later that day I told her she was Cinderella and sent her up stairs to scrub the bathroom floor.Before I catch any flack for making my 4-year-old scrub floors, let me just say that she enjoys it. Seriously. She even asks for more chores. And she is actually good at them. So who am I to squash her desire to
clean the entire house while I sit on the recliner, sipping coffee and watching HGTV help?Don't starting feeling sorry for yourself, wishing that your 4-year-old would do housework. Let me just remind you that with my little perk comes packaged with a whole lot of severe stranger anxiety, separation anxiety, not-getting-her-own-way 24/7 anxiety, and meltdowns issues.
Puzzle timeMolly’s strategy for puzzle assembly: She lets me find the piece, decide where it goes, attempt to place it and then rips it from my hands and places the piece herself.
Molly went to get her haircut with her friends Megan and Mia at the local kid spa. A kid spa—what’s up with that? The world is going crazy. I mean seriously, does a kid really need to go to a spa? I’m thinkin’ “no,” but off to the kid spa we went anyway.
I thought that having two good role models for Molly would help assuage her anxiety about having her haircut by a stranger. Um, that didn’t work so well but she finally did get her haircut and the three girls all looked beautiful.
I’ll take more pictures next week. Promise.
