Maimie posing with some of her loot
Just a little light reading
Fun with Margie and Gus***Thought we might participate in M3's Fashion Challenge Friday since we love watching Ro and Ree choose their outfits over at the Salsa in China blog.***
Ahh, yes. Maimie was turned loose in her room today to choose her clothes. Often she does this on her own, but today I specifically allowed her to choose without offering any suggestions or discouragement. I know, I know, it really was hard for me--control freak that I am. Maimie did pretty well, I guess. First she chose out some new Hello Kitty socks (thanks, Nancy!). Then she grabbed out a pair of busy leggings in a variety of colors. (They are really cute with the little dress that they came with.)
She topped off the outfit with a pink t-shirt sporting a flag printed USA on it. For the hairdo, Maimie said she wanted Chinese hair (pigtails) with twisties. She grabbed a red rose barrett to hold back her wispy bangs that are almost grown out but usually fall out of twisties. At the last moment, Maime added a huge pair of safety goggles that belong to one of the boys to complete the ensemble. Which, of course, was perfect since she really has an almost nonexistant nose bridge.
I promised Maimie that we would plant her little seeds this morning in honor of Earth Day. Yeah, yeah...hug a tree, whatever. She was thrilled! She ran in to grab her gardening gloves, changed her safety goggles to the fish sunglasses, and headed for the door.
The planting was a success. Maimie potted tiny pots of zinnias and strawberries. When Daddy came home for lunch, Maimie showed him what she had planted. She tried to remember what we had planted and I prompted her that one pot had flowers. I asked her if she remembered what we had planted in the second pot. I told her it was something that she liked to eat. So she told her Dad "I planted pudding". Can't wait to see how the pudding plant comes along... heh heh.
