This week's random number out of 4 was 1, so congratulations to Erin for winning the Tarte True Blood Book of Shadows palette. Her sexual fantasies, like mine, lean Sapphic, so I definitely approve.
Okay, remember about two years ago when I thought Emi was growing up to be a sassafras? Well, I spoke too damn soon. 3-year-old Emi has got nothing on 5-year-old Emi right when she wakes up. She definitely isn't a morning person.
Two recent examples:
Mommy and Daddy were having a boring grown-up conversation in the living room. Meanwhile Emi wanted to do yet another puppet show.
Emi: “Guys! Enough consequence already, let’s play!”
Dad: Emi! Wake up. What do you want for breakfast?
Emi: Nothing. I’m so sleepy.
Dad: Come on! How about some toast? “Toast is the Most”!!!
Emi: No. “Toast is the Least”. Go away.
And look at the expression on her face. Tell me that's not the look of total dismissal. I thought we wouldn't get this from her until she was a teenager!
I swear, she's lucky she's as cute as she is, because heaven knows I would not have been able to get away with that kind of backtalk when I was her age, or any age really.
Also, those of you in Trader Joe's areas, have you guys tried the Fruity-Os? They are a Fruit Loops knock-off, but they are sooooo delicious, it's not even funny. Their colors are Pinterest-approved pretty (I assume because they used natural dyes), they taste like lemon bars, and they stay crunchy in milk. Our whole family is addicted.
