I was hoping we'd be able to put this off for a little bit longer, but it looks like soon we will need to have The Conversation with Shae about riding in cars with boys. Of course, we're trying to teach her all about "no means no" and you can just imagine how well that goes over with a three-year-old: "Time for bed, Shae." "No." "Come on, it's time to go to bed." "'No means no,' Mommy." "!!!!"
Are the Sun-Maid Raisin people hiring? Because just look at how well this kid can rock a bonnet! No, I don't know why my Aunt Kim (pictured in the background) has a random bonnet around the house, but it is totally adorable. I was already working on a Halloween costume idea for this year for Shae, but I might try to work with this instead, because I love my kid in hats.
Yesterday we went to Church, which probably we should do more often but DON'T START. The 11:00 Mass was for my late paternal grandfather. Shae was wonderful, well-behaved and quiet and polite, and also really cute in her yellow dress. When she put it on at home she said, "Look at me, I am getting married." I just don't know who this person is, this proper little lady sitting in front of me in the choir loft.
I miss having feet that are little and narrow enough to pull off cute shoes. I have weirdly-shaped Fred Flinstone feet, as wide as they are long. Makes it hard to find cute, especially in the summer.
